The school requires that an entrant for kindergarten be five years old by September 1. No testing is mandated for kindergarten entrance, but screening is done prior to the start of school to evaluate physical development, ability to listen, and follow directions, along with fine and gross motor skills.

Saint Patrick School admits students of any race, sex, color, national origin, age (according to age requirements), or disability and are accorded the rights and privileges of all students.

Registration Fee: A $100 non-refundable, per student registration fee is required and may be paid online via credit card (including an additional $5 processing fee) or by check (payable to Saint Patrick School). Checks can be mailed to the school office at 87 Marsh Drive, Carlisle, PA, 17015
