Since the schools of the Diocese are established and maintained by the Diocesan community as religious schools, preference in admissions shall be given to practicing members of the Diocesan Catholic community. Preference in admission shall be given to the children of active supporting members of St. Didacus Catholic Church. In the case of Catholic students, some preference shall be given to the admission of siblings of students already enrolled in the school. Enrollment forms are available here or at the school office.
The Diocese of San Diego Catholic Schools mandates that a child must be age six on or before September 1st in order to enter First Grade. Therefore, a child must be age five (5) on or before September 1st in order to enter Kindergarten. All new students must be evaluated prior to admission.
In order to complete enrollment, the following documents are required:
- Birth Certificate

All immunizations must be current, and an immunization card must be present upon enrollment. A physical exam must be completed for entry to Preschool and First Grade. All immunizations must be updated before a student is admitted to the classrooms.
All families will be required to subscribe to the school’s philosophy and agree to abide by the educational policies and regulations of St. Didacus Parish School and of the Diocese of San Diego upon enrollment.
