The Principal at his/her discretion has the right to admit, re-admit, or deny admission of any student. In making this determination, the Principal will consider a variety of factors, including the conduct of the student and/or parent(s).
Conditions for continued enrollment at Saint John School include students’ academic progress and compliance with all school rules, regulations, and policies. Student failure to comply with rules, regulations, and policies may result in dismissal or denial of admission. Parental support and cooperation in all school matters, as well as ongoing volunteerism, are also required for continued enrollment in Saint John School.
Parents/guardians are required to inform Saint John School of their child’s special academic, emotional, or physical needs.

Students requiring special support services will be considered on an individual basis. Their status will be reviewed annually.
New students are considered as probationary students and Saint John School has the right to dismiss a student or family at any time during this probationary period. Probationary status is assessed at the conclusion of the first trimester and the end of the first year enrolled.

A Message from Mrs. Kozinski
Dear Future Saint John School Families,
I am so grateful you are considering Saint John the Baptist Catholic School for your family. Saint John School and Parish have been teaching the Catholic faith for almost 150 years. The people who have been part of our school set the foundation for those yet to come. We would love to add you to our growing family!
Catholic education, whether through the Catholic school or Faith Formation, is the largest ministry in the Catholic Church. The future of our Church is dependent on our young generations. Offering a strong, faith-based, education is vital. We are proud to provide a solid foundation rooted in faith which supports soul formation, sets high academic standards, encourages service, strengthens morals and values, and provides opportunities to participate in Sacraments. This foundation sets Saint John the Baptist Catholic School apart from the other schools in our area.
In addition to our focus on faith, Saint John School is proud to offer a rigorous curriculum with high academic standards. We are blessed to live in a country where education is available to all children. We know you have options, including the local Waunakee schools, so we work to maintain a high standard of learning and look to find ways to set us apart. Saint John School is fully accredited through the Wisconsin Religious and Independent School Accreditation (WRISA). Our curriculum is based on national, state, and diocesan standards which are reviewed each year. SJS teachers are licensed with years of continuing education credits, but more importantly, they are here because they have been called to serve in the vocation of Catholic school teachers. Each day, they work to meet the needs of each student through personal contact and differentiation.
We are grateful you are considering Saint John the Baptist Catholic School for your family. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our school or the enrollment process. I look forward to welcoming your family to our SJS family!
Kalee Kozinski, Principal
