When registering anyone, the school will adhere to the directives of the Cardinal, the Archdiocese School Office, and the State of Michigan. Parents or guardians of students seeking admission or transfer to St. Regis Catholic School must present copies of the most recent report card, standardized test results, and/or evidence of achievement from the last school attended. A copy of the Student Discipline Record must also be submitted. If the student has been serviced by or referred for in-school accommodations, a 504 Accommodation Plan, or an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a copy of the report(s) is required for admissions. Testing for entry into Developmental Kindergarten – Grade 8 is required. In addition, the principal will interview prospective students and/or their parents to determine reasons for seeking admission. (Archdiocese of Detroit School Policy 5002)
St. Regis Catholic School, respecting the rights of all involved, retains its authority to refuse admittance to, or expel, at any time, any student whose special needs cannot be met within the school setting, or whose presence would seriously impair the development of Christian education. The decision to accept a student is the responsibility of the administration. (5002)
All new students are accepted on a probationary basis for a period of not less than one semester (5002), with proper placement being determined by the past performance of the student.
During the time of probation, parents are encouraged to maintain open, frequent communication with their child(ren)’s teachers. At the end of the probationary period, a conference will be held with the teachers, parents, and administrator in attendance. At this time a decision will be made as to whether to end the probationary period, extend it, or ask the parents to seek another educational setting for the student.
Parents seeking to enroll their child(ren) in St. Regis Catholic School are expected to:
1. Accept and support the Philosophy and Mission of the school and its implementation in the school program and all policies outlined in the St. Regis Catholic School Parent/Student Handbook.
2. Support and adhere to all policies, procedures, and functions of the school.
3. Be prepared to give moral support to the developmental programs provided for the student.
4. Recognize that the school may not have the resources to meet the special needs of some children.
5. Provide the financial support necessary to operate the school by making timely tuition payments as agreed upon with the school administration.
6. Recognize that registration/enrollment may be jeopardized if fees and tuition payments are not current.
St. Regis Catholic School adheres to the policies of the State of Michigan and the Archdiocese of Detroit in regard to the age of admissions. Students seeking enrollment in Kindergarten must be 5 years of age by September 1 of the current school year. Students seeking enrollment in Preschool must meet these age requirements: 3 by September 1 of the current school year for the Half Day program, 4 by February 28 of the current school year for the Full Day program. Students seeking enrollment in Developmental Kindergarten must be 5 years of age by December 1 of the current school year. Students seeking enrollment in First Grade must be 6 by September 1 of the current school year.
State law requires that vision and hearing screening be performed for Kindergarten enrollment, and parents must provide evidence of vision and hearing screening during preschool years before a child enters Kindergarten.
Schools in Michigan are also required to assess and report the immunization status of all students. Therefore, all applicants must present documentation showing that they comply with the State of Michigan’s required immunization and health rules and regulations. These require that a child enrolling in a public, private, parochial, or denominational school in this state for the first time shall submit one of the following:
1. A statement signed by a physician that the child has been immunized or protected against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, rubella, measles, mumps, hepatitis, and poliomyelitis. In addition, your child has been tuberculin tested to determine the presence of infection from tuberculosis.
2. A waiver provided by the local Health Department is required for a child who has not been immunized and tuberculin tested because of medical conditions, religious convictions, other objectives.
Admissions will be considered incomplete until all health and immunization requirements have been met.
Once registration begins, you may fill out an application for your child(ren).
- A student is not placed in a class until the student is accepted and completely registered.
- Registration is complete only when the registration contract is accurately completed, signed electronically and submitted and approved.
- The FACTS tuition management enrollment process must also be completed (updated for current families) and the registration fee paid in full.
- If there is still a prior year financial obligation to this or another Catholic school, that also must be paid in full.
Yes, there is.
- The School is part of the Core Mission of the Parish and so the Parish gives a discount to registered, active parish members.
- To be active means that a family supports the parish by attending Mass, contributing to the parish, and being involved in some other ways.
The Fundraising Fee provides the family 20 chances in the annual lottery to win up to $5,000. If a family chooses, they may sell these tickets to others and recoup the cost. This fee ($200) is assessed per family and is due with the July tuition installment.
There is no discount for paying tuition in full early. The incentive to register early is to guarantee a seat in the appropriate grade for the student. Some grades fill more quickly than others.
- If you register a student before May 1st, the registration fee is $250 per student; from May 1st on, it becomes $350 per student.
- Regis offers tuition payment options and dates for payments through the FACTS tuition plan. There is a single payment option.
Peace of Mind tuition insurance may be chosen from your registration contract. The POM benefit will be added to your FACTS agreement. The POM Benefit will pay any eligible FACTS unpaid balance in the event of the death of the Responsible Party or his/her legal spouse. Any payments in arrears will not be covered. Coverage is only available to individuals under age 70. The non-refundable fee for this benefit is a nominal charge per family. You will be automatically re-enrolled in POM each consecutive year you have a FACTS Payment Plan Agreement.
Prior to the start of the First semester, all fees and the semester tuition is due. Should a student withdraw or be asked to leave St. Regis School, they forfeit all fees, financial assistance and any discounts. The net semester tuition will be reimbursed on a sliding scale, depending on which week into the semester the withdrawal occurs. This is detailed in the Tuition and Financial Policies document.
- The Archdiocese of Detroit awards financial assistance on the basis of need.
