   It’s About the Children!

PARISHIONER POLICY

For purpose of initial acceptance and tuition payment, Holy Cross Academy defines a parishioner in the following manner:

  • Those who live within the parish boundaries of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception located at 1009 Stafford Avenue, Fredericksburg, VA 22401;

  • Have completed their parish registration before November 30th of the year prior to the school year their child will begin school at Holy Cross Academy;

  • Are actively involved in the parish. The minimum standard for active involvement in the parish is defined as attending Mass regularly and using the Church envelopes at least once a month;

  • Submit the Parishioner Registration and Confirmation form to Saint Mary and return it with your completed application packet. You can find the form on our website here: Parish Registration Form
     

 Those who register after the 30th of November of the year prior to the school year their child begins school at Holy Cross Academy will be considered as Catholics from other parishes for that school year. In-parish status will be given for the following year when a completed Parishioner Registration and Confirmation form is submitted to Holy Cross Academy. Parishioner status cannot be changed mid-year.

 

An exception to this policy will be given to those who move from other areas to inside the boundaries of Saint Mary parish. These persons will be given parishioner status if they present a letter that states that they were registered and actively involved in their former parish. If not, the above regulations will apply.

 

Catholics from other parishes

To be considered a Catholic from another parish, a family must have completed their parish registration before November 30th of the year prior to the school year their child is beginning school at Holy Cross Academy. They must also be actively involved in the parish. The minimum standard for active involvement in the parish is defined as attending Mass regularly and using the Church envelopes once a month. A Parishioner Registration and Confirmation form must be submitted to your parish and then included with your completed admissions packet to Holy Cross Academy.
