Calvary Christian Academy admits students of any race to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to all students. Calvary Christian Academy practices a biblical philosophy of admissions, not discriminating on the basis of race, sex, color, or national origin in the administration of its policies, admissions, scholarships, athletic, and other school- directed programs.
- Upon return of a completed application, an interview with the family will be arranged with the admissions committee.
- After the interview, and after reviewing all other required materials (as stated on the application form), the committee will make the decision whether or not to admit the student. After admission, placement exams are administered to new students to ensure proper placement in reading and math.
- The committee will then notify the parents of the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, the parents will receive an Admissions Packet, including a Transfer of Records form, if the student attended another school previously.
Admission Requirements for the Student:
- A child must have reached the age of three years and be fully “potty-trained” by September 1 of the fall in which he would be entering Preschool (four years for Pre-Kinder, five years for Kindergarten, six years for 1st grade, etc.).
- If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his schoolwork and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at CCA, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if through the administration of the entrance exam or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that he repeat the previous grade.
Admission Requirements for the Parents:
- Though not required to be Christians, the parents of students in CCA should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of Calvary Christian Academy. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching (not forced indoctrination) of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program.
- The parents should be willing to cooperate with all the written policies of Calvary Christian Academy. This is most important in the area of discipline (see Discipline Guidelines and School Rules) and school-work standards, as well as active communication with the respective teacher(s) and administration.
