ADMISSIONS


NEW STUDENTS ALWAYS WELCOME

You don't have to wait for the beginning of a new school year to apply to SCS. Students are welcome to register at anytime during the year. Feel free to contact the School Office by phone  or by email if you have any questions, or if you would like to arrange an appointment to come in to see our school.

ADMISSION PROCESS

Before applying to SCS, please review the information on our web site and/or in your information packet so that you are fully aware of what SCS has to offer. The following is a step-by-step admissions process:

Step 1 - Application and Registration Fee 

Please submit 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 Agreement: 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. Included in the covenant agreement is the SCS “statement of Christian faith”. By signing the covenant agreement, parents partner with SCS to uphold the school’s Christian foundation.
  • Reference Letters: applicants are asked to submit two reference letters.

Step 2 -  Family Interview

An interview is scheduled with the Principal. The interview includes parents and students.

Step 3 -  Final Acceptance

The Principal makes the final decision regarding acceptance, and parents will be notified approximately two weeks after receiving the full application and interviewing.
