Admissions Process

  1. Submit Application(s) – Contact Carolyn Paradzinski ( to receive the appropriate application(s) for preschool, K-8, or high school.
  2. Application Fee – Submit the fee of $100 per student.
  3. Pastoral Reference Form -This is required from your current church (all grades). This is mailed to the requested pastor for completion. Follow up with your pastor as needed.
  4. Release of Records – if you are transferring from another school please sign and return a release of records form. This form is available in the main office and can be emailed to you. Records must be received prior to student testing.
  5. Student Screening – Students rising to kindergarten are screened with a developmental test. Students transferring from other schools into grades above kindergarten are screened on a case-by-case basis once we have received academic records from the previous school, or test results are received from homeschooled applicants.
  6. Family Interview – The Head of School will meet with you to learn more about your family and your hopes for your child’s/children’s education. Please bring questions about the school or any aspect of our program.
  7. Acceptance – When an admissions decision is made, you will be notified by mail. A payment policy document and an Electronic Funds Transfer form will be included with the acceptance letter. Simply sign and return the payment policy document with your $350 deposit and if you choose, a signed copy of the Electronic Funds Transfer. Once the deposit and the signed payment policy document are received, you are considered enrolled.  Tuition payments begin on July 1. Later admissions are billed from the point of contract.
  8. Post-Placement Orientation – New Family Orientation is held in mid-August. You will meet with the Head of School, teachers and staff and learn more about policies, procedures and expectations.
