It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, or athletic and other school-administered programs.

2. Members of a RCAN (Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark) parish
3. Non-Catholic students

Children entering kindergarten must be five (5) years of age by October 1, 2020. Students will be conditionally accepted into kindergarten with full acceptance contingent on displayed readiness on the Kindergarten Entrance Test.

At the time of registration, all new students (grades 1-8) seeking admission to Saint John's Academy are evaluated on the basis of several criteria including results of placement tests, standardized test scores, and report cards. These will be reviewed to determine whether the program at Saint John's Academy will meet the educational needs of the student.  An interview with parent(s)/guardian(s) and the student is part of the admission process.
