Information Packet – Before applying, read the information included to determine whether Sussex Christian School offers the type of education you desire for your child(ren).
Informational Interview – An interview (by phone or in person) is scheduled with the Administration for parents (and children, if the parents so desire).
Visit – We suggest that students entering Grades 7-12 visit SCS during a school day.
Family Application and Registration Fee – Return the completed Application to the SCS office along with the Registration Fee. This Registration Fee will be refunded if your child(ren) is/are not accepted. The application form includes:
- Student Application / Health & Permission Forms: required to be completed for each student enrolling; includes health information and medical treatment instructions; permission for attending school events, publishing photos and leaving school grounds. Students in grades 7 – 12 are required to sign a conduct agreement with the school.
- Covenant Agreements: All families must enter into a covenant with SCS to complete enrollment. This is a “Parental Understanding and Commitment” form, which states that you are in agreement with the policies of the school.
- Statement of Faith: The application includes the school’s statement of faith. Parents are asked to either indicate that they agree with the statement, or agree with the school’s right to uphold this statement.
- Reference letters – New applicants are asked to submit two reference letters; one from their local church pastor, and one from an adult who is not a family member.
Interview – An interview is scheduled with the Principal. The interview includes parents and students.
Testing – Testing may be required to determine student’s academic level. An additional testing fee of $60 will be charged to cover the costs of a proctor for the testing.
Final Acceptance – the Principal makes the final decision regarding acceptance, and parents will be notified approximately two weeks after testing and interviewing.
