Admissions Requirements

 

Student Admission Requirements (K-6th)

A child must have reached the age of five years by September 1st of the year in which he or she would enter kindergarten; or six years of age by the first day of school for entrance into the first grade.

If an applicant has successfully completed the previous school year and his schoolwork and behavior compare favorably to CCA’s standards, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if there is evidence that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, he may be required to repeat the previous grade.  Only Kindergarten students are allowed to repeat that Kindergarten year. 

The student should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school during the school day. Therefore, the child is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teacher and the Principal in their prescribed roles at CCA.

Student Admission Requirements (7th-12th)

Transfer students are required to provide transcripts and standardized testing results from their previous school sometime after they have applied, and before the assessment or family interview.  If a child has demonstrated academic strength in his or her previous school year and his or her schoolwork and behavior compares favorably to CCA’s standards, they will be placed in the grade for which they are applying.  Student acceptance will be based upon completion and review of the entire admissions process. 

Parent Requirements

Parents should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of CCA. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program.

Parents should have a clear understanding of our unique classical educational approach. Parents should carefully read the informational materials about the school. We also strongly encourage each parent to read the book by Douglas Wilson, “Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning,” as one of the best texts for explaining the kind of program we offer at CCA.

Parents are required to cooperate with all the written policies of CCA. This is especially important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to become active volunteers in other areas of the school.

Application Process

New student applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be accepted beginning November 1, 2019. Applications will be processed and reviewed upon completion. Thereafter, applications may be submitted and will be considered based on availability. Enrollment for all new students who complete the admissions process and are accepted begins on February 1, 2020.

Parents are encouraged to attend an Open House and/or schedule a private tour of the Calvary Christian Academy campus to become familiar with the school and its programs.

An application for admission to Calvary Christian Academy can be obtained from the school website or the school office. The application must include a non-refundable application fee of $100.

The applicant’s current teacher must complete a recommendation form and mail it directly to Calvary Christian Academy.

Parents must sign a Transcript Request to submit to the administration of the applicant’s current school requesting an official transcript and standardized test records for the past two years.

An entrance assessment must be taken at Calvary Christian Academy and be proctored by a Calvary Christian Academy staff member. There is an assessment fee of $100 due on or before the scheduled assessment date. All new students applying to Calvary Christian Academy for grades K through eight will be given a grade-appropriate Calvary Christian Academy assessment to confirm their readiness and to determine potential strengths and weaknesses.

After review of the complete application, recommendations, transcripts, and assessments, the School Administrator will contact the applicant’s parent/guardian to schedule a family interview. The applicant must be present for the family interview.

Members of the Admissions Committee carefully review each applicant’s file. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Screening and selection are based on behavioral and academic performance at prior schools, the ability of Calvary Christian Academy to meet the student’s needs, assessment results, lifestyle choices, and a willingness of the student’s parents to play an active role in the education process and in cooperating with the administration and faculty to promote the growth of the whole student. At Calvary Christian Academy's sole discretion, the school reserves the right to deny enrollment to any applicant at any stage of the admissions process, provided that all decisions are consistent with Calvary Christian Academy’s non-discrimination policy as described in the CCA Handbook. All questions regarding the review process, or the outcome of admissions, must be addressed in writing to the Admissions Committee at Calvary Christian Academy.

Nondiscrimination Policy: Calvary Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletic and other school-administered programs.
