  • A copy of your child’s last report card for children entering grades 1 – 8

2. Assessment

Our assessment process has been streamlined in recent years. Our office will contact you about next steps once we receive your application.

3. Acceptance & Welcome Letters

In most cases, we will inform you of the admission decision within a few days of receiving your application.

4. New Parent Orientation

The school and Parent Teacher Group (PTG) hosts a New Parent Orientation in May for all new parents to receive details for the upcoming school year.

New families are assigned a buddy family that they can meet with in the summer months leading up to their student’s first semester. This buddy family can answer any questions about the school experience.

Admissions Criteria

Transitional Kindergarten students must be 4 years of age by September 1st of the school year for which they are enrolling. For example, children should be 4 years old by September 1st, 2023 for the 2023/24 school year.

Please note that in the 2014/15 school year,  the State of California changed the incoming age for Kindergarten students. Students must be 5 years old by September 1st, 2023 to be eligible for Kindergarten in the 2023/24 school year.

Resurrection School Admission Policy

Resurrection Catholic School, a Catholic school in the Diocese of San Jose, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students of any race, color and national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability in the administration of educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. Resurrection School does not unlawfully discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of sex, age, disability, race, color and national and/or ethnic origin.

On the average, Resurrection School’s class sizes are kept consciously lower than the guidelines established by the Diocese of San Jose limiting classes to 35 students. Our primary grades average 20-26 students per class, and our upper grades average 24-27 per class.

If the number of applications received for any given class will cause the number of students to exceed the approved limits, then they will be placed on a waiting list.

All new students shall be on probation for a period of one year to establish their academic ability, behavior, and ability to study in the Christian environment of Resurrection School.

Students who are functioning at an academic level two years below their grade will not be admitted or re-enrolled.

Following the stated policy, decisions on admission shall be made by the school principal.

Students are admitted to Resurrection School based on the parents’ understanding and acceptance that their children will be receiving a Catholic education that meets the mission and philosophies described within the Resurrection School handbook.
