Admissions Process

Christ Classical School uses an admissions procedure that resembles that of many private colleges. This allows our school more accurately to identify and admit students and families who have expressed convictions similar to those upheld by the school regarding the education of their children.

The selection of the student body of Christ Classical School is second only to staff selection in impacting the school’s mission and vision. We seek to foster a family-like atmosphere that is due in great measure to the similarity of biblical convictions and principles taught and lived out in many of the homes of our students.

As the Lord blesses us with growth and change, we will labor with purpose to build and maintain a school culture of grace, a culture that would elicit the response from our Lord, “Well done good and faithful servants.”

We are now accepting applications!

 

If you are an interested family, we would love to meet you. Please drop by the school office on Laureate Lane to see the school grounds, meet the Head of School, and pick up an application packet. You can also download the required application material from the “Application Forms” page here on our website.

Once you have submitted the application packet, we will schedule a family interview with you. We encourage both parents and require the student applicant to attend the interview. Placement testing may also be required to make an appropriate decision on the grade level assignment. All student applications are considered on a case-by-case basis.

To apply for our K program, the following is required:

  • Your child must have reached the age of five years by September 1 of the fall in which he/she would enter Christ Classical School.
  • A K-readiness screening or individual academic assessment may be required.

Grade Placement: If a child has successfully completed the previous school year at another school and his academic records and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at Christ Classical School, the child is placed in the grade for which he is applying.

However, if there is evidence to show that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, he may repeat the previous grade. Each child should understand that his parents have willingly and kindly delegated their authority to the school. Therefore, he is subject to the instruction and care of the teachers and Head of School in their prescribed roles at Christ Classical School.

Christ Classical School is a covenant-based educational community and therefore requires that at least one parent profess faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is also essential that both parents (or, in a single parent home, one parent) have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of Christ Classical School. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching (not forced indoctrination) of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school community. The parents must also be willing to cooperate with and adhere to all the written policies of Christ Classical School. This is most important in the area of discipline and academic standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration.

Priority for acceptance:

  1. Current students (must re-enroll by the last day of February to secure a space);
  2. Siblings of current students;
  3. All other applicants.

A completed application packet must be returned with a $100.00, per child, application fee to the school office.
