Lial School recruits and admits students of any race, color, religion or ethnic origin, all with the same rights, privileges, programs, and activities. No student will be denied admission solely on the basis of a positive HIV test, learning differences or physical disability.

Registration begins in January for all Readiness students (returning and new families).

Registration begins in January for students presently enrolled at Lial. The prompt return of registration forms is important to secure enrollment and the desired AM/PM session for Readiness. The non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of registration.

Registration begins in February for all new students (Primary through Middle School) who are on the waiting list.

The tuition schedule is posted at the time of registration. Registration procedures and requirements are distributed with the registration forms.

Registration is for one year and does not insure re-enrollment for the following year. Registration may be denied to students with serious behavioral infractions, or to families if parents cannot meet the policy expectations of Lial School. When new students are admitted, it’s with the understanding there’s a 90 school-day probation, and students ages 8 and older need written recommendations from the two most recent teachers and the most recent Principal.

Registration for the new school year is a contract that a family enters into with Lial Catholic School with the obligation to pay the full tuition. If circumstances arise that the family needs to leave Lial before the end of the school year the responsibility to pay the full tuition is still required. After the registration due date, students on the waiting list will be called for any openings Lial may have.

Priority is given to:

  • Families with a child already enrolled at a Notre Dame School
  • Catholic students
  • Families expressing long-term educational commitment to Lial
  • The order in which families appear on our wait list

Class assignment is the decision of the principal. AM/PM/All-Day readiness placement is done on a first come first serve basis.
