ADMISSION TO CALVARY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Calvary Christian School is committed to entering into partnership with Chrisntian parents who desire, first and foremost, a Christ-centered education for their student. It is felt that the large majority of students enrolled should represent homes in which are least one parent is a believer. Preference is given, therefore, to students from Christian homes and to brothers and sisters of student already enrolled.
Calvary Christian School has an evangelistic approach beginning at the Kindergarten levels which narrows rapidly to a discipleship approach through middle and high school. In short, the higher the grade level of the student being admitted, the higher the level of commitment to the Lord we expect from the student and their family.
In order for students to enter our four-year old program, they must be four prior to July 1st, just prior to the beginning of the school year of entrance. The student must also be "potty trained."
In order for students to enter our five-year old program, they must be five prior to July 1st, just prior to the beginning of the school year of entrance. Exceptions are made if the student has attended another preschool or has been home-schooled prior to attending Calvary Christian School. However, no student will be allowed in our five year old program who has their fifth birthday on or after October 1st of the school year of admittance.
All students entering the Calvary Christian School elementary, middle or high school program will need to show evidence that they are able to do the work at the grade level they are entering, as required by our school. They will also need to show evidence that they did not have discipline problems at their previous school.
Admission to the 6th through 12th grades is by invitation only at Calvary Christian School. Students who are currently enrolled in 5th through 11th grades at Calvary Christian School will receive an invitation to return the following school year on or about February 1st of each year. Because this invitation will be issued after only two quarters of academic and social grades, it is issued based on continued satisfactory grades and behavior the balance of the school year.
All other 6th-12th grade students seeking admission who are not current students at Calvary Christian School will be reviewed by the schoolâ€™s Senior Administrator. The standards for admission include a written letter from the studentâ€™s pastor stating what he/she believes the studentâ€™s current relationship with the Lord as it is expressed in the applicantâ€™s activity and attendance in church. The student must also write a letter to the school stating why they want to attend Calvary Christian School. An applicant must clearly demonstrate through current grades and/or test scores that they can do the work required by the advanced 6th-12th grade curriculum that is used by Calvary Christian School. Finally, an applicant must have had no disciplinary actions requiring administrative intervention at his or her previous school in the last three years.
It is the administrations goal to develop one of the finest, most disciplined, technologically superior, and academically sound middle and high schools in the area. Therefore, admission standards will be high, and recruitment goals will have little impact on admission to the middle and high school. A discipled student body along with highly qualified, skilled teachers will be the cornerstone that rest on the foundation of Christâ€™s teachings which will lead to Calvary Christian School reaching its desired goals for the middle and high school.
An application must be completed each year and forwarded to the school with the appropriate Registration/Book Fee.
Calvary Christian School will admit students of any race, color, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to students at the school.
All students are required to present a completed copy of a Virginia Physical Examination Form which is no more than two years old. A Transcript Release Form must be completed for students coming from other schools. Receipt of a student's records are needed before final admission may be approved. A certified birth certificate must be shown prior to the first day of school for all new students.
