Community Christian School admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin. All students are entitled to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded to or made available. Students may not be admitted due to lack of available space, unsatisfactory scholastic record, disciplinary issues, or unresolved financial status with previous school. At least one parent must be a born-again Christian in regular attendance at a local church. CCS reserves the right to refuse admission based on inability in the past to meet financial commitments.
The age of admission to Kindergarten and the First Grade will be in accordance with the following regulations:
|Kindergarten||5 years old on or before September 1st|
|First Grade||6 years old on or before September 1st, if the child has completed Kindergarten|
The general priority used for admission is:
Admissions are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration forms may be picked up in the school office or printed off our website. The forms should be completed by the parent or guardian and returned to the office with a non-refundable registration fee for each student (see Tuition Rates page for fees schedule).
All families will be interviewed for the purpose of spiritual, behavioral and academic assessment. In addition, all students will be tested by their prospective teacher to ensure that the student is prepared to enter the grade level for which they are applying. Evaluation includes the review of the student’s most recent report card and S.A.T. results. Based on the results of these evaluations and interviews, admission acceptance and placement is determined. Students initially accepted will be placed on probation.
The Probation Phase is a three-grading period phase for all new students. Parental support is crucial. There are three separate contacts set for the parents and teachers to communicate:
First contact: The initial appointment is to explain to the parents and student the purpose and scope of the probation. This may be accomplished during orientation.
Second contact: Parent will be notified by letter and/or phone call of student’s progress after 1st grading period.
Third contact: At the end of the 3rd grading period. This is a final assessment and includes contact between the parent, student, teacher, and administration to review ongoing commitment to the above criterion.
During the Probation Phase, students will be evaluated on the following objectives:
In addition, the following items must be completed and turned into the office before any student is allowed to attend classes:
