Admissions Process

With a large number of prospective students, we anticipate the number of applicants may exceed the number of seats available in a designated grade level for the upcoming school year. 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, please follow the checklist below.

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 and schedule a tour of our campuses. Complete the inquiry/tour form here.
