Student Registration

Corpus Christi has open enrollment throughout the school year for classes that are not at capacity. Students must be 5 by August 1st to begin Kindergarten. If you are interested in touring our school or visiting a classroom, please contact the school office at 574-272-9868. Tuition rates for 2015-2016 will be available in late February.

Registration at Corpus Christi School consists of the following: A New Student Registration Form (one for each child being registered) and a New Family Registration Form are needed for families registering at Corpus Christi. Registration forms must be submitted in person to our school office. Additional items (per student) are required upon submission of registration forms:

  • Child's Birth Certificate
  • Baptismal Certificate (if Catholic)
  • Immunization record
  • Two Previous report cards
  • Complete standardized testing history (including ISTEP, Iread, Acuity)
  • Disclosure and copies of any special education services previously received (lEP, ISP)

Copies of documents can be made at the time of registration. Prekindergarten and kindergarten registrations only require the first three documents listed above with registration forms. Registrations will not be processed further, including tuition assistance determinations, until all the applicable documents are received.

Prospective Student Testing & Placement- Grades 1-8

All prospective students in grades 1-8 are required to submit their last 2 report cards and any previous standardized testing scores (including: ISTEP, IREAD, Acuity) at the time of school registration and be willing to complete academic assessment tests prior to admission to Corpus Christi. Students applying for admission may be tested on language, English proficiency, and math.

Upon review of test data, the principal will make a determination regarding the schools ability to meet the needs of the student tested and notify incoming parents of enrollment and placement decisions. An interview may be required for students and parents new to the school and enrolling in all grades.

Financial Arrangements- Payment Plan & Assistance Applications

Tuition Balance Payment

Tuition balances (including balances above any aid or voucher amounts) may be paid in three ways:

  • Payment in full by August 1st (with a 2% discount for those families without the School Choice Scholarship)
  • Half on August 1st and half on January 1st
  • Through the FACTS Payment Plan system, where payments are spread out in equal monthly payments from August 1st until May 1st

Note: Students will not be placed on a class list and enrollment will not be considered complete until one of the above payment plans is completed.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance in any form (Choice Scholarships (vouchers), SGO Grants, and Parish Assistance) requires a FACTS Grant & Aid application for income verification. This is an online application which has an administration fee of $30 charged by FACTS.

Parish Assistance may be available for those registering before May 1st. Tuition Assistance is not calculated prior to registration. All registration steps must be completed prior to aid determination.

Information on Choice Scholarship (voucher) income and path way eligibility is available at www.doe.in.gov/choice.  Voucher amounts vary, depending on household incomes and school districts of residence. Before Corpus Christi can submit a School Choice Voucher application for a student in the state system, additional state documentation must be signed by the parent/legal guardian. Families requesting a Choice Scholarship voucher will be contacted after enrollment acceptance to complete the voucher application requirements. The state voucher application system closes on September 1st. All registration and required state documentation must be completed prior to this date, including arrangement of payment for any balances that might be owed above the voucher amount.

SGO Grants ($500 minimum) are issued by the Diocese for those families who meet income eligibility, but do not qualify for a voucher pathway.
