Enrollment for the school year begins with your online completion of FACTS ENROLLMENT. All families must set up a Tuition Payment Plan with FACTS under the Jackson Area Catholic School System. Each family is required to pay a non-refundable yearly family enrollment fee of $55. The fee increases to $75 on May 1st.
If you are new to the Jackson Area Catholic School System and you would like to enroll your student at Lumen Christi, please call the Admissions Coordinator at (517) 787-5080 ext 266.
Course Selection for incoming students takes place annually the last week of February in the Lumen Christi Library. Parents and students have one-on-one time to meet with administration about course selection. For those parents who are unable to attend the evening sessions, daytime course registration begins the following week by appointment.
Current students in Grade 8 thru Grade 11 receive information on course selection during the school day in the last week of February and register for classes the first week of March. Course selection is a process that is vital to a student’s success. As students prepare to register for classes, we require parents to be involved with the course selections, requesting that they discuss goals and interests with their child. We require signatures from faculty, parents, and students to process the course selections each year for registration.

The Michigan State Legislature passed Public Act 160 of 1996, the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act and Public Act 258 of 2000, the Career and Technical Preparation Act also known as the “Dual Enrollment” bills. These bills modify and expand on provisions of the State School Aid Act providing for students to earn college credit while in high school.
The bills also require that the board of a school district or public school academy ensure that each student in eighth grade or higher be given information about college course taking opportunities. The classes that students are eligible for must not be offered by the high school or academy and must lead towards postsecondary credit, accreditation, certification and/or licensing.
