Calvary Christian School Admissions Policies
By enrolling a child at CCS, parents enter into a spiritual, educational and financial commitment with the school. Upon enrolling a child, parents sign a statement of cooperation pledging that they will cooperate with and not in any way oppose the school’s statement of faith, purpose, philosophy, policies, procedures & regulations. Parents should fully and comprehensively read the CCS handbook and make a thorough investigation of the school (via school website, etc.) to ensure that they are fully supportive of its direction and philosophy.
Getting started: The parents of a prospective student should call the school office to request an Information Packet and schedule an interview and tour. Bring to the interview a recent report card, achievement test results, and any available documentation regarding special needs.
Basis for acceptance: Student acceptance is based on the interview, entrance testing, prior achievement test results, school grades & discipline records, references (7-12th), signed parent & student agreements (7-12th), space availability, and administrative approval.
K5 children must be five years old on or before August 31st of the current school year. If an age-eligible child enrolls in K5 more than 2 weeks after the first day of school, the child will only be accepted if he/she is evaluated and approved by the classroom teacher.
1 st grade students must be 6 years old on or before August 31st of the present school year. If an ageeligible child enrolls in 1 st grade without successfully completing a K5 program similar to CCS, the child must be evaluated by our K5 teacher and verified to be ready for 1 st grade.
2 nd -12th grade students who have not recently taken an approved national achievement test will be given an academic entrance test before grade placement is finalized.
Parent / Student Agreements are required upon enrollment and each year thereafter.
Reference Forms (7-12th) are required only at the time of initial enrollment (forms provided by CCS), and include:
1) A “Church Reference” to be completed by the student’s pastor or youth pastor,
2) A “Teacher Reference” to be completed by a teacher who has taught the student
within the last year (not SS), and
3) An “Administrative Reference” to be completed by the administrator of the
student’s previous school.
7-12th grade students must faithfully attend a Bible preaching church each week.
Students entering 8th grade and above who are not transferring from another Christian school will be approved for enrollment on a case-by-case basis.
Students who have been sexually active or married are not eligible for enrollment at CCS.
Final approval: After the interview, a student’s enrollment becomes official when we have received a completed and signed Student Application, Parent Agreement, Student Agreement & Reference Forms (7-12th), signed Financial Agreement, and registration fees.
Non-Discrimination: Calvary admits students of any race, color, or national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. CCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational or admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic programs, as well as other school-administered programs. Family life, church status, and general behavior are carefully considered.
