All families are invited to enroll their children, whether or not they are members of Our Savior Lutheran Church. Our Savior Lutheran School admits students of any 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 race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission's policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
All students must register for admission each year.
For new students in Preschool 3 or Pre-Kindergarten, parents must submit the registration fee, a completed application, copy of the child's birth certificate, and copy of the child's complete Immunization Records.
For new students in grades K-8, parents must submit the registration fee, completed application, completed Recommendation Form (grades 1-8 only), copy of the child's birth certificate, copy of the child's complete Immunization Records, copy of child's most recent Report Cards (grades 1-8 only), and a copy of child's most recent Standardized Tests (grades 1-8 only). If a student has been expelled from a previous school, he/she will not be eligible for admission. If composite test scores are below grade level, a student will be accepted only on a nine week probationary period. If composite scores are 18 months below grade level, a grade level drop may be required to enter Our Savior and further testing may be needed. It is not the policy of Our Savior Lutheran School to accept a student who has a poor deportment record at his previous school. At the discretion of the Board of Parochial Education and the Principal, such a student may not be accepted or may be accepted on probation.
New students of grades 5-8, who are registering for the first time, are asked to meet with the principal for a student interview.
New students of grades K-8 are given an entrance exam for admission into the school. Kindergarten students are given a Kindergarten readiness test. Students in grades 1-8 are given an abbreviated version of the Iowa Basic Skills Test to include vocabulary, reading and math components. Admissions testing will be scheduled with the Admissions Coordinator. Testing for Kindergarten takes 30 minutes, and 1st grade takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. Students entering 2nd - 8th grades should allow 2 - 2.5 hours.
The acceptance of any child for enrollment is subject to the approval by the Board of Parochial Education.
The registration fee must accompany a student's registration form. No refunds or transfers of the registration fee will be made. The Registration Fee will be refunded only if the Board of Parochial Education declines to accept a student for enrollment.
State law requires that a certificate of immunization must be provided for the child's records before the beginning of each year. This may be obtained from your doctor or a health clinic.
Students entering Our Savior Lutheran School for the first time must have the following required inoculations, T.B. Test, and all other inoculations up to date: DPT, Polio, MMR, Hepatitis A & B, Hib, and Varicella. All new students and all students in grades PK, K, 1, 3, 5, and 7 are required by the Texas Health Department to have hearing and vision screening tests. Also, spinal screening is required for students in grades 6 and 8. Hearing and vision screening are provided at OSL for a nominal cost to the parents. If a parent has these tests completed by their own physician, they need to report the results in writing to the school office BEFORE SEPTEMBER 1st OF EACH SCHOOL YEAR.
All immunizations must be current by September 1, in order for the student to continue to attending classes.
Preschool 3 All children who have reached their 3rd birthday on or before September 1st, are toilet trained, and are of normal ability are admitted to Preschool 3 classes.

Under age children will not be admitted to Our Savior Lutheran School unless they had been previously attending a state approved school. Proof of date of birth and that they were attending a state approved school must be presented at the first registration. Those students transferring from other schools should bring their most recent report card, achievement and or standardized test scores, and immunization records when they register.
New students applying for admittance to Our Savior Lutheran School will not be accepted if they have failed any of the subjects listed as core subjects at Our Savior.
- Probation (ALL New Students): Any new student enrolled will enter on probationary basis. The student will be on probation for a nine-week period from the date of first class attendance.
