We will ordinarily admit a child who has met the following requirements:
Has successfully completed the previous grade.
Has taken the Stanford Achievement Test and achieved at least the 40th percentile.
Has been screened by the classroom teacher using an informal assessment.
For kindergarten enrollment, we expect that girls will be 5 before September 1st, and that boys will be 5 1/2.
Admission is based upon receipt of application, registration fee, signed Statement of Faith, pastor's reference indicating student's involvement in Sunday School and church, and satisfactory records from previous school. A personal interview is conducted with the Admissions Committee, and recommendations will be made to the Board by the Admissions Committee when these requirements are satisfied.
Spa Christian School exists to work together with Christian families and local evangelical churches in the raising of their children for Christ. Therefore, it is essential that the family be actively living for the Lord. This is determined by at least one parent signing the statement of faith, and both parents being present at the interview and asked to explain their testimony of faith and present church involvement. Families are expected to be actively learning and using their gifts in their church in addition to worshipping on Sundays. Exceptions to this may be made by the Administrator and Admissions Committee on an individual basis, as the need arises.
Spa Christian School does not discriminate against applicants and students on the basis of race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
