Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Pella Christian Schools.

We partner with families seeking a Christ-centered education, where students are educated and nurtured to discover their individual, God-given gifts to serve in His kingdom.

Our goal is to maintain optimal class size in each grade level, and our admission/enrollment process helps to achieve this goal. Students may be placed in a wait pool during the admission/enrollment process. We prayerfully hope these students will be able to join our school family when a spot becomes available. 

In order for your student to be considered for enrollment, NEW families should follow this process:

Complete an Inquiry

Tell us more about your student and family by completing an Inquiry Form. Our Admissions office will follow up with you to answer your questions.
