We consider it a privilege that you have chosen St. Barnabas School for your child’s faith formation and education. We strive to provide the best possible Catholic Faith formation and academic education for the children. Our enrollment policy is to base admission on our capabilities to serve the needs of all of the children entrusted to our care.
St. Barnabas School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally made available to students at the school.
Priority for new student enrollment is given to families with children currently enrolled in the school, children of supporting parishioners of the St. Barnabas, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Cosmas & Damian and Mother of Sorrows parishes, and those who live in the Nordonia Hills School District.
All new students are accepted provisionally. If either the school or the family feels that a child is not adjusting to the curriculum, guidelines, or behavior norms, a conference will be held with parents, teacher, and principal to discuss alternatives.
Our current enrollment for the 20-21 school year is 475 students.
All employees and volunteers who have contact with students undergo thorough screening, including background checks through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification (BCI&I). For complete information on screening policies, see the revised Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse, section 1.2 (p. 3).
