Dear Prospective Family,
Thank you for your interest in St. John the Evangelist School. We are a Catholic community that welcomes families of students from Pre-K to Grade 8, serving the greater Attleboro area since 1954. As a Catholic school, our main goal is to educate and prepare children to assume their roles in church and society through a safe and disciplined environment. We look forward to the possibility of sharing this experience with your child/children.
We are grateful every day for the teachers, staff, board members, parents and volunteers who make our school so successful. We hope you and your child have the opportunity to visit our school and meet our staff. We are proud of our continued improvements to our facility and our quest to have the latest technology for our teachers and students.
St. John’s School is a special place for children to grow. We welcome your interest in moving forward with the admissions process. Completed applications may be mailed to the school or submitted at the Open House. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. We are happy to serve you in whatever way we can to enhance your child’s education.
Sister Mary Jane Holden
St. John the Evangelist School, as well as all the schools of the Diocese of Fall River, admit students of any race, color, creed, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools. The school has a primary obligation to children who are siblings of currently enrolled students and qualified parishioners of St. John the Evangelist Church. Following these, consideration will be given to those members of other parishes in the Diocese of Fall River, and then, those with no affiliation to the Catholic Church.
St. John the Evangelist School follows the policy of the Attleboro Public School System regarding admission to kindergarten. A child must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1.
A birth and/or baptismal certificate are required. Kindergarten screening, combined with a preschool evaluation and available school resources, determines acceptance.
Parents/guardians of candidates seeking admission in Grades 1-8 must provide the following:
- Birth and/or Baptismal certificate
- Copy of most recent standardized tests
- Copy of most recent report card
- Core Evaluation I.E.P. (if applicable)
- Summary of reading/math progress
- Health record
An interview with the Principal, parent/guardian and student follows the reception of required data. Acceptance is also based on available space and school resources.
