Admission Policy

Mater Dei High School realizes that a student body with varying backgrounds (racial, ethnic, socio-economic, and geographic) provides a full educational experience for all students. Thus, Mater Dei admits students of any color, racial or ethnic origin, or faith, to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students at the school.

Although we try to serve the needs of all types of learners, we may not have the necessary resources to accommodate certain learning disabilities and difficulties. If the school becomes aware of additional information after the student has been admitted that impacts the school's ability to provide service to the student, the school reserves the right to change its admission decision.

Step 3: Notification of Admission Status
