Saint Michael Catholic School welcomes all who are interested in a Christian education, regardless of gender, race, creed, or national and/or ethnic origin. In accordance with South Carolina Law, students must meet the September 1st birth date cut-off in order to be enrolled in these grade levels:
• Pre-Kindergarten children must be 4 years old
• Kindergarten children must be 5 years old
• First grade children must be 6 years old
Requirements for Entrance
Parents of a new student must provide the following:
• A birth certificate
• A South Carolina Certificate of Immunization
• A Certficate of Baptism (if Catholic)
• Reports and record from previously attended school
• Payment of a nonrefundable registration fee
The school is aware that some children may have been diagnosed with special needs prior to applying to Saint Michael Catholic School. It is the parents/guardians' responsibility to provide documentation and information to the principal, prior to registration, regarding personal conditions which may require special services by the school. In these cases, the documentation will be evaluated to determine the extent of services that can be offered by Saint Michael Catholic School and communicated to the parents prior to any enrollment decisions. The St. John Vianney Program is intended to provide services to students who qualify and would meet with greater academic success with such a program. This program is staffed by a special education teacher.
Transfers Out of Saint Michael
Parents/Guardians expecting to move and/or transfer a student out of Saint Michael Catholic School must contact the office at least one week in advance of the student's last day at school so that necessary clerical work may be completed. The parent or guardian must sign a "Release of Records" form before any records can be transferred. All textbooks and library books must be returned, and all fees and tuition must be paid in full before records can be transferred.
Registration for Subsequent Years
Pre-registration for the following year, for current students, takes place in February/March. To assure a student's space in the next grade, parents are asked to fill out a form and pay a nonrefundable registration fee. Families may only re-enroll for the next school year when all current year tuition and fees are paid to date.
