How to Apply – English

Sacred Heart Nativity School’s admissions process begins in mid-January every year, when applications become available. Families are welcome to attend an orientation evening in early January where prospective families can pick up an application, learn about the school, and take a school tour.

The application process includes:

  1. Paper application that includes teacher recommendations and a student essay
  2. Review of Transcripts from previous school
  3. Financial documentation/proof of income
  4. A student and family interview

Please contact the School Office (408-993-1293) to request an application or visit the school at 310 Edwards Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110 during school hours. Applications are due mid-February, with interviews generally occurring in March/April. Admissions decisions are generally mailed in early May.

Please note that 94% of Sacred Heart Nativity Schools students qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program, so income is considered as a factor in admissions decisions. It is our school’s mission to serve low-income students and families, with priority given to students who live in the Washington/Gardener neighborhood.
