Enrollment

Pre-registration for existing students takes place in the spring of each year. Full payment of applicable registration fees and receipt of current immunization records will reserve your child’s place in his/her appropriate grade. Open enrollment for new and transfer students begin after pre-registration concludes. Parents enrolling their child(ren) at Bishop John Carroll School for the first time are required to submit a copy of his/her birth certificate, Baptismal certificate (if applicable), immunization records, custodial agreements (if parents are divorced) and prior academic history along with appropriate registration fees. When a student is transferring from another school into Bishop John Carroll School, registration remains incomplete until all academic and financial records have been received from the previous school.

As a Roman Catholic school serving a parish and an archdiocese, we are dedicated to the dignity of every human being. Bishop John Carroll School enrolls students with no discrimination in regard to sex, race, ethnic background, or economic status. Since we are a religiously-oriented school for the Catholic community, we give preference to members of the Roman Catholic Church, but welcome members of other denominations after our own community is served. Bishop John Carroll School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, ethnic background or economic status in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and assistance programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.

If we feel that we can meet a child’s needs, and if the family is committed to the mission and philosophy of Bishop John Carroll School, we accept students, as space allows, in the following order according to position on the waiting list:

Siblings of currently enrolled students
Children of active, registered parents of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish
Children of active Catholic non-parishioners
Children of non-active Catholics
Children of non-Catholics

The parent(s) must understand and agree to the mission of Bishop John Carroll School, appreciate its unique status, and willingly support and encourage the policies, which realize the philosophy of the school. Cooperation of parents with the Church and school is important to our mission, and is an important criterion for admission and ongoing registration at Bishop John Carroll School.


Children must be four (4) years of age on or before the 1st day of September for admission into PK; children must be five (5) years of age on or before the 1st day of September for admission into Kindergarten; and children must be six (6) years of age on or before the 1st day of September for admission into First Grade . (School Laws of Oklahoma 1982, Section 14)

At the time of registration, all new students seeking admission to Bishop John Carroll School are evaluated on the basis of current standardized test scores and report cards. These will be reviewed to determine whether the program at Bishop John Carroll School will meet the educational needs of the students. An interview with students seeking admission to the middle school (grades 6-8) is part of the process.

All new students to Bishop John Carroll School will be given a trial period of forty-five days in which to prove themselves both socially and academically. If during this trial period there are any problems, a student may be asked to withdraw his/her attendance at Bishop John Carroll School.

Foreign students may be admitted in accordance with the existing requirements and regulations of the United States Department of Justice.
