General Information


The faculty and staff of Epiphany Cathedral School are committed to providing a quality Catholic education.  Schools in the Diocese of Venice admit students of any race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools.

 

Students are selected for enrollment based on the following priority:

  1. Current students
  2. Siblings of students currently enrolled at the school.
  3. Families who are registered and are active parishioners of ECS.
  4. Families who are registered and are active parishioners of other neighboring Catholic parishes.
  5. All other families.

Additional factors that are weighed in the admissions process include the order applications are received, previous academic, disciplinary, and service records, placement screening and whether relatives of the student are alumni of Epiphany Cathedral School.  However applying for financial aid has no bearing on admission decisions nor does the promise of a financial contribution to the school.  Students accepted to Epiphany Cathedral School are subject to a probationary period during which time the student will be evaluated to determine his or her compatibility with the school.  The school reserves the right to accept those students whose needs can be met within our existing educational program.
