Admissions Wait Pool
Holy Family Catholic High School is dedicated to the individualized attention and care for the unique needs of our students as we strive to support their academic, physical, emotional, and spiritual development. To that end, enrollment limits are established for each class/grade to support positive experiences and outcomes for both students and their families.
When enrollment limits have been reached, new applications for admission to the school are placed into a Wait Pool. In the event that an opening becomes available with respect to a specific grade, HFCHS will evaluate the relevant applications of the Wait Pool and determine an offer of admission.
Wait Pool FAQs
What is the difference between a "wait list" and "wait pool?"
A wait list is determined by completion of application paperwork and as spots become available, students automatically move up the list. A wait pool is a pool of applicants who are prioritized by criteria determined by Holy Family. Those factors are included in the FAQ’s.
What are the evaluation criteria used for offers of admission?
- The family’s commitment to a four-year education at Holy Family.
- The family has another student currently enrolled at Holy Family.
- The family has had prior students (now alumni) who attended Holy Family.
- The family has another student currently enrolled at a local Catholic elementary school.
In the event that no Wait Pool applications meet these criteria, Holy Family reserves the right to offer admission to the Wait Pool applicants it feels will best complement the class/grade to which they are seeking admission. Holy Family will not consider race, gender, religious affiliation, or financial need as factors in its Wait Pool discernment and admission process.
How many students are in the wait pool?
Holy Family will not share specific numbers about the wait pool, but will be in communication with families in the wait pool to determine their continued interest in enrolling in Holy Family, should openings occur.
