The Catholic Diocese of Biloxi Schools has created an online application and registration system for its schools to use for the 2018-2019 school year. This is our maiden run at online registration at St. Alphonsus Catholic School, so please be patient as we all learn from this experience.
 
Please note that first-time, or “new,” students and returning students are registered separately, even in the case of siblings.
 
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions. Thank you for trusting St. Alphonsus Catholic School with your children.

New Students –

  • A “new” student is… a child that has not attended St. Alphonsus Catholic School prior to the 2018-2019 school year. A “new” student can also come from a “returning” St. Alphonsus School family. (i.e. A younger sibling coming to St. Al’s for the first time is considered “new,” even though they have an older sibling that has/is attending St. Al’s.) 
  • “New” students apply… by clicking this link and completing the online application form. Please make sure to fill out the form completely and, if needed, you can take a break and return to the site to complete your application at a later date. It is important to fill out the “guardian” section as this establishes email communication with the School regarding your application. When all sections have been completed, you may submit your application. *Please review your information before submitting as edits can only be made by contacting the School.*
  • After submitting your application… you will receive a confirmation email that your application has been received by the School. Please review the “Next Steps” portion regarding documentation requirements, fees, and deadlines.
 

Returning Students –

  • A “returning” student is… a child that attended St. Alphonsus Catholic School during the 2017-2018 school year.
  • “Returning” students register… via the PowerSchool parent portal. (PowerSchool is where you can check your child’s grades, attendance, etc.)
    • If you have not previously accessed your PowerSchool account, you must first create an account. Each family is assigned an Access ID and AccessPassword for each child enrolled at St. Alphonsus Catholic School at the time of their enrollment. Each child enrolled at St. Alphonsus has their own Access ID and Access Password. If you have not yet created an account and do not know your child’s Access ID or Password, contact the School Office. 
    • Once signed into the PowerSchool parent portal, click on the secure  “Registration” link at the bottom on Navigation sidebar. (Please note that this not the same link as the “Class Registration” link located in the middle of the sidebar.) You will be asked to confirm your child’s birth date and will then be taken to the Diocese of Biloxi’s online registration system. Fill in the required fields updating your family’s information. *Please review your information before submitting as edits can only be made by contacting the School.*
  • After registering… you will receive a confirmation email that your registration has been received by the School. Please review the “Next Steps” portion regarding documentation requirements, fees, and deadlines. Note that continued enrollment at St. Alphonsus is contingent upon academic progress, proper conduct, and timely payment of tuition.
