What Else Do I Need to Register My Child?

You must submit a copy of the following:

  • Baptismal certificate (Catholic only)

  • Most recent report card

  • Most recent standardized test scores

  • Immunization records

  • Custody papers, if applicable

Must students pass a test before being accepted at Mother Brunner?

If you apply for Pre-K or Kindergarten admission, your child must complete a screening. Call the office for an appointment. Because incoming students come from various learning centers, our screening enables our teachers and administrators to obtain information about the student's skill levels to ensure readiness for our programs. In addition, your child must meet the age criteria of age 4 for Pre-K or age 5 for Kindergarten by September 30, 2021. There is no fee for Pre-K or Kindergarten screening. 

New students (Grades 1-8) are given an admissions test. In addition, students will be tested in the areas of Language Arts and Math. The cost of the testing is $25 per student and is due on or before the scheduled testing date. The test aims to get to know your child’s talents and abilities and ensure that Mother Brunner can meet their educational needs. The administrators will review the results of these tests as well as the student’s academic, behavior, and other records. If the student is accepted, he/she will be placed by the administrators in the grade where he/she will be most successful at Mother Brunner Catholic School. Call the office to make an appointment. 

If your child is serious about education and has your support, he/she will find that Mother Brunner offers many opportunities to excel in academics, the arts, and athletics. If you and your child understand the value of Catholic education and are willing to work hard, Mother Brunner is the right school for your family. 

When will I know if my child has been accepted to Mother Brunner?

After all required application forms have been submitted and the admissions test/screening has been completed. Test results will be reviewed along with all other information, and we will contact you within 20 days of your child’s assessment date. Once you receive your acceptance letter, you have five business days to provide the school office with your child’s completed registration and tuition paperwork, along with the $275 family registration fee. Your child's reserved space will be canceled if the paperwork and registration fee are not received by the deadline stated in your acceptance letter.
