Policy

Image result for public policy The Academy of St. Therese of Lisieux is a Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Newark. Our admission policy is as follows:

We accept all students regardless of race, religion or ethnic background in the following progression:

  1. Catholic parishioners
  2. Catholic out-of-the parish
  3. Non-Catholics

    The non-Catholic student is welcome at The Academy of St. Therese of Lisieux. The non-Catholic student will receive his/her education in the framework of the Catholic religion and values. All students are expected to participate in all facets of religion classes, liturgical practices and prayer life of the school.



    If a non-Catholic parent experiences a strong moral dilemma regarding their child's participation in Catholic liturgical practices, they are asked to contact the Principal.
