Little Flower School of the Archdiocese of Washington admits and provides services for students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin.
Since Little Flower is a parish school, it provides the children of the parish with an educational experience based on a Catholic philosophy of education. Any child who fulfills the age, health and academic requirements is eligible for admission. It is presumed that our families:
- Are formally registered in Little Flower Parish.
- Worship each weekend with their Little Flower students at Little Flower Parish
- Provide verifiable financial support to the Parish. These gifts should be made by using the weekly Sunday envelopes or ParishPay and by contributing annually to the Little Flower Parish Fund
If space is available, non-parishioners may be accepted.
Children entering Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten or First Grade must be four/five/six respectively by September 1st, the specific date determined by the State of Maryland. Incoming First Graders must have attended an approved kindergarten. Birth and Baptismal certificates and health records are to be presented for children entering our school.
Care is taken to determine whether a child will benefit from our program of studies. Screenings, review of school records and report cards, teacher recommendations and reports of conduct are some of the criteria used in making admission decisions. New students will be accepted on a probationary basis for a period of three months. Acceptance will be finalized when it is determined that the school can meet the student’s academic needs.
Enrollment of a child in Little Flower School implies the willingness of both parents and students to comply with the policies and regulations of the school. In order to realize the school's aims, parents and students must agree with and support the philosophy of the school and the Code of Discipline.
