OLQP offers programs of education and formation for children who are willing and able to live within the religious, academic, behavioral, and attitudinal requirements of the school and whose parents/guardians demonstrate a desire to have the school assist them in their parental role as primary educators of their children.
Our Lady Queen of Peace School, guided by the Milwaukee Archdiocesan Policy on admissions, “respects the dignity of the child and his/her right to an education in a Catholic school.” Neither race, nationality, nor other forms of discrimination shall prevent a child from being accepted on a space available basis unless attendance would cause conflict for the child because of the religious philosophy of a Catholic school or if the school is unable to meet the specific needs of the child.
Registration for the new school year will be taken for the presently enrolled students during the month of January. Registration for new students to OLQP will begin February 1st of the current school year. The last report card, birth certificate, immunization record, copy of the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) (if applicable) and baptismal certificate (if applicable) must be presented at the time of registration.
Principal or a member of the school office staff will inquire as to whether the new student has a history of or is presently eligible for special education and related services available under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). It is the responsibility of the parent to provide the school with a copy of the student’s IEP. A student eligible for placement under IDEA may be enrolled at OLQP if a plan and resources are available to meet the student’s special needs (Archdiocese Policy 5111.2.).
All new students are on probation during the first year. Probation may be extended at the discretion of the principal
