Admissions

We're delighted that you are considering St. Joseph Regional School!  We welcome the opportunity to share with you what we believe makes St. Joe's a very special learning community.  The admissions process is really about getting to know each other and discovering if St. Joe's is the right place for your child.  This is a process for you to come to know our school, and to decide if we offer the kind of experience of which your family will want to become a part.  
We want to help in any way that we can with your decision.  If you would like more details or wish to schedule a visit or shadow day, please contact us at 603/352-2720.  Or you may email Chris Smith, Principal of St. Joseph Regional School, at csmith@stjosephkeene.org.  A school visit and/or tour along with a meeting with the Principal is requested for all new families interested in enrolling their children.

Apply for financial assistance.  New families are strongly encouraged to apply to the NH Children's Scholarship Fund.

In 2021, the State of New Hampshire created the new Education Freedom Accounts (EFA) program to help expand educational opportunities for New Hampshire children. Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, eligible New Hampshire families earning up to 300% of the poverty line can direct part of their child’s state education funding to pay for tuition at the school of their choice (including SJRS), tutoring, online learning programs, educational supplies, internet connectivity, and other educational expenses.  Applications are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis.  The typical amount received is $3,400.  For details and to apply CLICK HERE.

SCHOLARSHIPS

 

Fr. Alan Tremblay has created a scholarship fund for parishioners of the Parish of the Holy Spirit

To get additional details and indicate your interest, please contact the Parish Office directly at 603-352-3525 or via email at holyspirit.peace@gmail.com.

The John J. Nielson Scholarship is given to Catholic students within the Parish of the Holy Spirit who exhibit John's desire to spread the faith through education and to ensure that no student is excluded from Catholic education for financial reasons. This scholarship assists three families each year to overcome financial concerns to have their children attend Saint Joseph Regional School and Our Lady of Mercy Academy. Each school year, one elementary school student, one middle school student, and one high school student receives Nielson Scholarships.  We are honored to have the trust of the Nielson family, grateful for their continued commitment to our students, and proud to honor John's wishes.  

Financial assistance also comes from the Monsignor Daniel O. Lamothe Adopt-A-Student Fund.  As a graduate of St. Joseph Regional School, Monsignor Dan has been a strong supporter of Catholic education throughout his life.  In his honor, this fund was established to provide much needed tuition assistance to families with children attending St. Joe's and Mercy Academy. 

St. Joseph Regional School admits students of any gender, race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
