New student registration is an exciting time for you and for us. For you, it's the beginning of a new chapter in your student's life and for us it is a honor that you chose to entrust your student to us for the next four years.
Where Is The Registration Form? Our registration form is available here. You can fill it out on your computer then print it out for signatures OR print the blank form and fill it out by hand.
When Can We Register? New Student Registration begins with a bang on Monday and Tuesday, March 6 and 7. We are open from 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. both days. You can walk in without an appointment between 7:30 - 3:30 or you can schedule an appointment between 3:30 - 7:30.
What Do We Bring To Registration? Bring your registration form and a check for our commitment fee of $275 to registration. If your student does not attend one of our Partner Schools, you will also need to bring a transcript from the current school.
Who Are We Meeting With During Registration? You'll start by turning in your signed registration form and commitment fee at the front desk (we have a Notary Public to take care of signatures). You'll then meet with one of our Counselors to determine what classes your student will take in the fall. The Counselors will use current grades and results from the High School Placement Test to determine a preliminary roster of classes. They will go over there suggestions with you and you will have opportunity for input. Once you leave the counselor's office, you'll have a plan for the coming school year.
Can My Student Join Me For Registration? This is completely up to you. If you are comfortable talking with the Counselor about your student's grades and learning potential, then bring your your student. If you'd prefer a more private conversation, we can do that as well. Most families bring the student, but it truly is your choice.
What If We Are Applying for Financial Assistance? To apply for financial assistance, including the Spalding Scholarship from the Diocese of Peoria, the FACTS Grant and Aid form must be submitted by March 15. You must also be registered by May 1 as assistance can only be given to registered families. In addition to filling out the FACTS Grant and Aid form, contact your Pastor to see if there is any additional assistance your parish can provide (Please note that every Central Catholic family in our Partner Parishes already receives assistance that bridges the gap between our non-affiliated and affiliated tuition rates.)
What Happens After Registration? When you leave Central Catholic after registration, you and your student are members of our Saints Family! You will begin to receive additional information that only registered families receive and including information about summer athletic team schedules.
As I wrote earlier, this is an exciting time - enjoy it! I truly hope you already feel welcome in our school and that registration can be like reconnecting with friends. I'm probably more excited than anyone because it has been such a fun experience meeting and getting to know so many of you and your families.
If your question is not answered above or if you need additional information, call/text me at 533-2200 and we'll figure it out together.
