Non-Discrimination
The School Commission, Administration, and Pastor establish policies for admission of
Catholic and non-Catholic students in alignment with archdiocesan policies. Catholic
Schools administered under the authority of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis comply with
those constitutional and statutory provisions as may be specifically applicable to the schools
which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, disability, or national
origin in the administration of their educational, personnel, admissions, financial aid,
athletic and other school administered programs. This policy does not conflict with the
priority given to Catholics for admission as students. This policy also does not preclude the
ability of the school to undertake and/or enforce appropriate actions with respect to students
who publicly advocate any practices or doctrines which are inconsistent with the religious
tenets of the Catholic faith. Catholic schools have not been, nor shall they become, havens
for those wishing to avoid social problems confronting them in the public sector.
