Catholic Diocese of Raleigh
The Diocese of Raleigh Catholic Schools acknowledges that there are students who require special services to meet their full human potential. St. Egbert Catholic School is committed to all students succeeding to the best of their abilities. In the event that a student has a diagnosed special need (documented by licensed medical personnel), accommodations may be offered that can be reasonably made within the normal general education classes and when the school has the resources (academic/staff) available to accommodate the students’ needs. However, modifications to academic requirements or alterations in the general course of studies will not be made. The Diocese of Raleigh Catholic Schools are exempt from the mandate of providing services for IEP’s and 504 Plans. If a student cannot be accommodated within the school program, every effort is made to assist with placement in another school program beyond St. Egbert Catholic School.
Applications for admission are considered in the following order:
1. Children who have already enrolled and are attending the school who wish to reapply.
2. Siblings of children who are already enrolled and are attending the most current school year.
3. Catholic families that are actively registered, contributing, and participating members of St. Egbert Catholic Church.
4. Other Catholic families with supporting documentation of active registration and participation in another Catholic parish.
5. All other families.
Age and Registration Requisites
• Pre-Kindergarten: 4-years-old by August 31st
• Kindergarten: 5-years-old by August 31st
• First Grade: 6-years-old by August 31st

A per child registration fee is required to complete the registration and enrollment process. This fee is non-refundable. In-house registration is typically held for 1–2 weeks during the month of February, then registration will open to the community. Any family with an outstanding tuition balance at registration time will not be allowed to re-enroll the student(s) for the next school year. Parents should contact the principal as soon as possible to discuss possible solutions.
The school reserves the right to deny re-enrollment of any student if the school believes it is unable to meet the educational needs of the child. The school will do all it can to provide assistance in relocating the student to another educational facility.
