Central to the philosophy of archdiocesan and parish
high schools is the belief that parents/guardians are the primary educators of
their children. In support of this, the school and the parents/guardians work
in close collaboration in all aspects of the student’s educational process.
Since a married student is in effect no longer accountable to parents/guardians,
the relationship between the school and the parents/guardians is compromised.
Therefore, a high school may preclude a student who marries from continuing to
attend school. The principal is expected to confer with the assistant regional superintendent of the Department of Catholic Schools before making any final decision.
