Archdiocesan Non-Discriminatory Policy

The Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, mindful of their mission to be witnesses to the love of Christ for all, admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the respective schools. These schools do not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability in the administration of their educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs (Administrative Handbook, #5111.1)

St. Veronica Catholic School Acceptance Policy

Acceptance to St. Veronica Catholic School begins with an application and successful completion of a basic skills assessment. For students seeking acceptance to grades one through eight, past report cards and standardized tests are reviewed, and an interview with the student and/or family will be conducted.


Acceptance of successful applicants is based upon the following priorities:

  • Siblings of current or former St. Veronica Catholic School students

  • Legacies who are children of alumni

  • Catholics

  • Registered in St. Veronica Parish 

  • Registered in St. Augustine and Mater Dolorosa Parishes 

  • Registered in another Catholic parish                                        

  • Non Registered Catholic

  • Non-Catholics

All new students are accepted for a probationary period of one year. If at the end of the year, or at any time during the probationary period, a student’s conduct, effort, and/or grades are found to be unsatisfactory, or parents have failed to meet the expectations outlined in this Parent-Student Handbook; the student’s enrollment will be reviewed and, if deemed necessary, terminated.
