Visitation is a Catholic Parish School that prepares students to be responsible citizens
and life-long learners committed to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ.
A child may be admitted to kindergarten if the fifth birthday of the child occurs on or before September 1st
A child may be admitted to first grade if the sixth birthday of the child occurs on or before September 1st. (Archdiocese Policy 3060)
Any student transferring to Visitation School from another school in grades 1-8 is required to have a con-ference with the principal before official registration. He or she will spend at least one day at Visitation School for informal assessment before acceptance is determined. Admission of the student is at the dis-cretion of the principal after conferring with teachers at previous schools and careful examination of school records.
Admission will be on a probationary period of twelve weeks. Probation will be based on academic and be-havioral performance as determined by teacher observation.
Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Portland do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex or disability in administration of their educational policies, scholarship pro-grams, and athletic and other school administered programs. Attendance at a Catholic school is a privilege, not a right.
While Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Portland do not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them.
