Calvary Christian School (CCS) is committed to entering into partnership with Christian parents who first and foremost desire a Christ-centered education for their student(s). Because of this, we believe that a large majority of students enrolled should represent homes in which are least one parent is a believer. Preference is given, therefore, to students from Christian homes and to brothers and sisters of student(s) already enrolled.  

CCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletic, and other school-administered programs, nor in the hiring of faculty or administrative staff.  It does, however, screen applicants and personnel on the basis of Christian faith and lifestyle, character, and academic ability.

Admission to CCS is open to students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin who are in Pre-Kindergarten (K4) through 12th grade.  Students entering K4 should be four (4) years old by September 30.  The student must also be "potty trained" and be able to maintain proper behavior in the classroom. Generally, unless a special educational situation exists, the date of birth serves as the main qualifier for admission.

Students entering Kindergarten (K5) should be five (5) years old by September 30.  Exceptions may be made when the student has attended another preschool or has been formally home-schooled prior to attending CCS. No student, however, will be allowed in our five-year-old program who has their fifth birthday on or after October 1st of the school year of admittance. These students will find our K4 program a challenging experience.

All students entering the elementary and middle school program must demonstrate they are able to do the work at the grade level they are entering, as required by our school. They will also need to show  they did not have discipline problems at their previous school, nor over the past three years.

Admission to the 9th through 12th grades is by invitation only at Calvary Christian School.  Students who are currently enrolled in 8th through 11th grades at CCSC will receive an invitation to return the following school year on or about February 1st of each year. Because this invitation will be issued after only two quarters of academic and citizenship grades, the invitation is issued based on continued satisfactory grades and behavior for the balance of the school year.

All other high school students seeking admission who are not currently enrolled at Calvary Christian School will be reviewed by the school’s Senior Administrator.  The standards for admission include a written letter from the student’s pastor stating what he/she believes the student’s current relationship with the Lord as it is expressed in the applicant’s activity and attendance in church.  An applicant must clearly demonstrate through current grades and/or test scores that they can do the work required by the advanced high school curriculum that is used by Calvary Christian School. Finally, an applicant must have had no disciplinary actions requiring administrative intervention at his or her previous school in the last three years.

It is the administration’s goal to develop one of the finest, most disciplined and academically sound high schools in the area.  Therefore, admission standards will be high, and recruitment goals will have little impact on admission to the high school. An excellent student body along with highly qualified, skilled teachers will be the cornerstone that rest on the foundation of Christ’s teachings which will lead to Calvary Christian School reaching its desired goals for the high school.

The Admission Process

Admission to the elementary and middle school follows these criteria and processes:

  1. Parents review the information provided on the school’s website and in this handbook. Then,  Parents submit an Initial Interest Form through the school website,  If internet access is limited or not available, then the parent should contact the school office directly.
  2. Parents provide completed application documents, including immunizations, report cards and transcripts, and standardized test scores; and arrange a personal interview with the Administrator, including curriculum readiness testing for the student (as deemed necessary by the Administrator).  A completed application for enrollment at CCS substantiates the parent(s) or guardian(s) and student agrees to adhere to policies of CCS.
  3. Admission to CCS s based upon the interview, where the Administrator examines the student’s conduct, spiritual life, academic ability, social behavior, and emotional stability.  The Administrator must also see evidence that the parents agree with the school’s goals.
  4. If the student is accepted, it is the responsibility of the Administrator to place the student at the grade level that will provide the greatest opportunity for success.
  5. Parents should pray about the decision to proceed with enrollment and count the financial cost of providing this education for their child.
  6. Families will be notified in writing of the admissions decision.  Parents demonstrate their acceptance of admission within five days by remitting the non-refundable registration and book fees, completing the online admissions form, and signing financial contract.
