Non-Discrimination Policy

The Catholic Diocese of Jackson, which includes Saint Richard Catholic School, admits students of any race, color, gender, or national origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students.

Saint Richard Catholic School, in accordance with the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (Public Law 94-142) continues the availability of their educational programs to handicapped and non-handicapped children. Handicapped and non-handicapped children will be educated together to the maximum extent appropriate.
