Do we need to attend Registration Day?
While Registration Day is not required, we do recommend attending. This will give you an opportunity to submit any of the forms required to be submitted in person (Transportation form, Student Success Center.) This is also a wonderful time to celebrate with other members of the class of 2024, their families, and the Bergen Catholic community. The dress code for the day is casual and is from 8 am-Noon, however, you do not need to stay for all 4 hours.
How do we know what courses my son is taking?
Based on your COOP scores, you will receive a preliminary course placement made by our Academic Department Chairs. After registration, you will receive a mathematics and world language questionnaire. This will give you the opportunity to submit the current math class you are in (i.e. Pre-algebra, Algebra, Geometry, etc.) as well as which language you would prefer to take (Latin, Mandarin, and Spanish).
If my son was not placed into honors, can he challenge that placement?
Yes, your son can challenge his placement. If he would like to challenge his placement, we will hold placement examinations on Saturday, April 4, 2020. They will be held from 9:00 am -Noon at Bergen Catholic. More information on this will be sent out following the registration deadline of February 15, 2020.

As a senior privilege, they can wear the BC polo all year.
My son participates in a sport. Does my enrollment into the school automatically add him to the list for participation in the sport of his choice?
While you will be added to all communication from Bergen Catholic, this does not include communication from teams regarding their schedules. You will be included in any communication regarding their registration dates, however, you must register for those sports to receive any notifications about their updates.
How can my son sign up for clubs and activities at Bergen Catholic?
The activities booklet is usually sent out to all students in mid-July.
