If you are a Returning Family enrolling a sibling in Preschool (or higher grade if the sibling has not previously attended OLF), you must first submit an online Application for this new sibling. The Application can be completed now, before enrollment opens on March 27th.
Families who are enrolling a new student for the 2023-2024 school year must start by completing an online Application and creating your FACTS Family Portal account.
STEP 1: SUBMIT ONLINE APPLICATION*
Click HERE to complete and submit your online Application. You'll receive an email confirmation that your Application was received. It may take a few days for us to review and process your Application. Please be patient.
*This step must be completed even if you already submitted a paper application to the School Office.
PRESCHOOL APPLICANTS - WHILE YOU WAIT: While waiting for your Application to process, Preschool families can prepare for enrollment by printing and completing all required forms, and having them scanned and ready to upload. The Preschool Physician's Report can be turned in at a later date, closer in time to your student beginning instruction.
ALL NEW FAMILIES -- WHILE YOU WAIT: Have scanned and ready your student's Birth Certificate, Baptism Certificate (if applicable) and both sides of the yellow Immunization Card.

STEP 3: PAY REGISTRATION FEES
Within a few days of submitting the Enrollment Packet, you'll receive an email from FACTS with your invoice for registration fees. Our school administrator must create a new invoice for every enrollment packet submitted. Please be patient.
Upon receipt of your invoice, login to FACTS and promptly pay all fees. Registration is not complete until all fees are paid.
Our Lady of Fatima School reserves the right to admit, readmit or deny admission to any student. For our complete admissions policy and other important information, please see our School Handbook.
If our Preschool or K-8 classes have insufficient space for all applicants, OLF prioritizes admissions as follows:
All K-8 students must be assessed by their prospective teacher before enrolling. OLF charges a $30 fee per assessment.
Kindergarten assessments are to evaluate school readiness. Grade 1-8 assessments are to evaluate academic performance and placement. Applicants for Grades 6, 7 and 8 must also participate in an interview with the Principal.
Please call (209) 826-2709 or e-mail email@example.com to schedule an in-person assessment for your child. We are also happy to provide a campus tour during your visit.
