We embrace our mission to educate the whole child by encouraging growth in faith and spirit, body and mind, self-discipline and responsibility with a focus on achieving personal excellence in academics and living out the Gospel values in today’s world. The Principal and administration at the school handle all admissions to St. Angela. Please see the summary of the admissions process below. If you have any additional questions, we invite you call the school office at (504) 835-8491.

Admissions Process:

Registration Fees

Registration fees must accompany the Application Form. This fee is non-refundable.

a) $165 for the youngest or the only student in the family
b) $150 for other students in the same family

Parish Support Fee for K-7th: $350 / student

a) Registered, active, supporting members of St. Angela Merici Parish are exempt from paying a $350 (per student) non-parish support fee in grades kindergarten through 7th.

1.) In order to be considered parishioners at St. Angela Merici Church, families must be registered by October 1, 2016 to be eligible for 1st day registration for the 2017-2018 school year.

2.) Registered, active members of St. Angela Parish who contribute a minimum of $10 per week in the 1st collection (at least $520 annually) at weekly Mass are automatically considered supporting members and qualify for the St. Angela Parish tuition rate.

At the end of each calendar year, the parish supplies the school with a list of families who qualify for the St. Angela Merici discounted rates for the upcoming school year. Families are urged to use church support envelopes, so that donations may be identified and posted to each family’s account at the parish. Remember, that Church donations may be tax deductible.

NOTE: Some families of our parish are truly supporting members even though they are unable to contribute at the above level. They are invited to meet with the pastor, Father Beau Charbonnet, so he can make this determination.

b) If you are a registered, active, supporting member of another Catholic church and have a voucher from that parish, you do not pay the support fee. You can obtain a voucher from your pastor. We cannot waive this fee until the voucher has been received. The voucher must be submitted to St. Angela Merici School by May 31, 2017.

c) If you are not a registered, active, supporting member of any parish, you must pay the support fee of $350 per student. This fee is non-refundable.
