BVM School utilizes a "Continuous Enrollment" concept for students enrolled in our school. Continuous Enrollment assumes that once enrolled, a child will continue their education until graduation from eighth grade. Since most of our families remain year after year, this will streamline the enrollment and enrollment process by reducing time and paperwork for parents and the school staff.
Students currently enrolled will be automatically enrolled for each subsequent school year. New families will need to complete the initial paperwork.
Each enrollment period, parents will be given the opportunity to opt-out of continuous enrollment for the following school year by filling out this electronic opt-out form.
To opt-out, please complete the form below.
Please complete the Opt-Out/Withdrawal form below if you wish to opt-out of continuous enrollment or for any reason you want to withdraw your child/children from Blessed Virgin Mary School.
We encourage you to contact the Business Manager, or the Enrollment Director if there is an issue or concern that we might be able to help with prior to completing the form.
This form will be digitally sent to both the Principal and the Business Manager.
Please remember that student records and transcripts are not released for withdrawn students until all current fees are paid. Please refer to the Family Handbook for more information.
For full-time students who are opting out of Continuous Enrollment
Your student’s spot at Blessed Virgin Mary School will no longer be guaranteed and will be subject to BVM having space available in that grade(s).
If you later decide to return, you will need to complete the Application for Admission Form and an application fee will need to be paid upon enrollment.
Financial aid awards will be forfeited; Financial Aid applications will need to be resubmitted and awards will be made with any remaining funds, if available.
