CCS is not right for every student, nor is every student right for CCS. The goal of the school’s admissions policy is to identify students whose lives will be enriched through participation in the spiritual and academic educational program of CCS. In assessing a prospective student, a combination of the following factors will help identify and determine the suitability of the CCS program for each prospective student considered.
Criteria for spiritual commitment:
The parent should be familiar with the Mission and Faith Statement of CCS.
The student and at least one parent must profess Jesus Christ as Savior (Grades 3-8).
The student will be required to participate in and be open to spiritual growth.
The student and at least one parent must be active and faithful in church attendance.
The parent must sign a Parent Statement of Cooperation.
Criteria for Academic Performance:
Students entering Kindergarten will take an informal readiness assessment.
Students entering Grades 1-8 may be required to take an academic placement test.
CCS is unable to admit students who are diagnosed with behavior, learning, or emotional disabilities. We do not have the staff to address these needs.
Criteria for Behavioral Performance:
The student will be required to adhere to the rules of CCS as stated in the handbook.
The parents will be required to cooperate with CCS in the enforcement of the disciplinary rules as stated in the handbook.
Students in Grades 3-5 will sign an Elementary School Honor Code.
Students in Grades 6-8 will sign a Middle School Honor Code.
Criteria for Age Requirements:
Students enrolling in Pre-Kindergarten must be 3 or 4 years of age by September 1st of the current school year to enroll in the Pre-K 3 or Pre-K 4 class respectively. All Pre-Kindergarten students must be completely toilet trained.
Students enrolling in Kindergarten must be 5 years of age by September 1st of the current school year to enroll in the Kindergarten program. An informal Kindergarten readiness assessment may be given to determine suitability of our program to meet the student’s needs.
Parents/legal guardians must submit appropriate enrollment documents accompanied by a non-refundable registration fee.
Parents/legal guardians must supply the school with a copy of the student’s records and current report card (Grades 1-8).
Parents/legal guardians of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students must provide a copy of the student’s birth certificate and proper immunization records.
Applications are processed when all initial enrollment forms and fees are received. Students entering K-8 may be required to take a placement test.
All prospective parents and students will participate in an interview with the principal to ask questions, discuss concerns, review academic progress, and assist in a successful transition into CCS.
The Admissions Director will issue a letter of acceptance to the parent/guardian when a student has been accepted.
When placement is not available due to full class capacity, the student will be offered placement on the waiting list.
Class placement, including the waiting list, will include the following criteria:
review of application
results of academic placement testing
interview with student and parent
previous school recommendations and performance
date of receipt of application
payment of fees
Acceptance will be a probationary basis. Discipline problems, inability to perform at grade level, and false information given at the time of enrollment will be considered.
REGISTRATION FOR RE-ENROLLMENT
Registration is an annual requirement. Applications for re-enrollment of currently enrolled CCS students will be accepted beginning the first day after the Annual Vision/Business Meeting. Acceptance notification will be emailed to parents/guardians. If the application for re-enrollment is submitted after May 1, the applicant will be considered along with new applicants. CCS does not guarantee future enrollment or re-admission based on prior conduct. Re-admission is subject to review each year and is evaluated by the administration and Advisory Board based upon the general admission criteria for that school year. Students having an outstanding account balance from the previous year will not be permitted to begin the new school year.
