Admissions Policies

“Whereas: the philosophy of the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore is based on the Christian Social Principles of the Gospel Message to love and respect the right of all people.” It is the policy of the Department of Catholic Schools that the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and/or national or ethnic origin in the administration of their educational policies, scholarships and loan programs, athletics, and other school programs.

Admission Priorities

Families are invited to attend the School of the Incarnation according to the following priorities:

  • Families who are registered worshiping parishioners of one of our five parishes
  • Families who are registered worshiping parishioners in other Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore
  • Families who are registered worshiping parishioners in other Catholic parishes outside of the Archdiocese of Baltimore
  • All other families

The priorities listed above are for admissions purposes only, not tuition determination.  Families who worship at any Catholic parish will pay the “Catholic tuition rate,” as worshiping Catholics support Catholic education through parish giving.  Families who worship elsewhere will pay the “Other Faiths tuition rate.”  Tuition rates for 2017-2018 will be posted online as soon as they are approved by our School Board and the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Decisions for the appropriate educational environment for each child are based on multiple sources of relevant information. Discernment on what is the best educational setting for each child as well as the role of the family of the child in Church/parish life is of primary importance. The family, parish of the family/child, and the administration of the School of the Incarnation work together in the admission process. Transfer students whose academic, behavior or testing records and results indicate potential difficulties at School of the Incarnation may be accepted on a probationary basis at the discretion of the principal.
