4. ADMISSION DECISION
After application submission, the Principal will review the student’s entire application and respond via email with one of three decision types: Acceptance, Wait List, or Non-Acceptance.
Acceptance – These students are qualified to attend Countryside Christian School and show promise of not only benefiting from but also contributing to the school. These students are offered enrollment positions. The school’s offer must be accepted or declined within 2 weeks of the acceptance date.
Wait List – These students are admissible, but all available enrollment positions have been filled. Instead of being offered an enrollment position, a wait list position is offered. The wait list does not carry over from year to year.
Non-Acceptance – These students are not offered enrollment at Countryside Christian School.
After acceptance, parents will receive an enrollment packet link via email. The following additional documents will be necessary to complete the online enrollment process:
-Copy of Student Birth Certificate
-Copy of Immunization Record
-Copy of Social Security Card
-Copy of Parent Driver’s License
Enrollment is complete once the enrollment packet is signed and submitted to Countryside Christian School. A $100 Registration Fee is due upon submission of your enrollment. The billing office will handle all financial questions and transactions regarding tuition and fee payments from this point forward.
6. ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT
Students entering Kindergarten will be administered an age-appropriate readiness test to determine eligibility for Kindergarten. Testing will be scheduled during the summer.
Diagnostic testing will be conducted to determine PACE levels in each subject. Testing will be scheduled before the start of the new school year. If a student is enrolled during the school year, diagnostic testing will take place during the first few days of attendance.
Upper High School students will be placed in courses and electives based on previous transcript records.
