Educational Needs/Accommodations (DOSA Policy 700.7)

The Catholic school community in the Diocese of St. Augustine has a goal of helping all children reach their full potential intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Individual schools establish admission policies for their own schools, which target students who are able to manage in a mainstream setting.

Limited resources prevent us from accepting students who would require more than simple accommodations.
