Admissions

Rayne Catholic Elementary School is an open admission Catholic school.  Rayne Catholic Elementary School is in compliance with Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and admits male and female students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on any national, ethnic, or religious basis in administration of the school’s education policies, financial assistance programs, athletics, or any other school administered program.  The school makes a sincere effort to live up to its philosophy of educating the whole child in a faith-filled environment.  The school seeks to serve all students who want the benefits of a quality Catholic education. 

Students at Rayne Catholic Elementary School must follow the academic and discipline policies of the school.  Serious disregard for the various policies will result in probationary status for the student and/or possible expulsion.  Rayne Catholic Elementary School pledges to work closely with our students and their parents in the enforcement of school regulations, and students and parents are urged to review carefully these policies.  Students and parents are required to abide by all policies in the school handbook.

Admission will be denied to applicants only when their needs cannot be properly served at Rayne Catholic Elementary School.  This may occur when class size does not allow for proper placement of a student, when there is need for highly specialized counseling and treatment, or when a student’s discipline record indicates a disruptive pattern.

Students expelled from another school for illegal drugs or weapons violations will not be admitted to Rayne Catholic Elementary School.  Other refusals will be at the discretion of the administration.
