In order for a student to be accepted into Christ Preparatory Academy, a family must . . .
Attend an Open House event.
Parents are required to attend an on-campus informational meeting about Christ Prep held in February, March and April each year. Parents will receive a packet of admissions materials then.
Complete all required placement testing.
Incoming elementary students take placement tests in math and reading. Students in the ninth grade and above entering Christ Prep for the first time are required to take and pass a grammar entrance test in preparation for the rigors of four years of English study. Students who do not achieve a score of 80 percent or above are required to take a high school grammar course, either concurrently with English I or before enrolling in any other high school grammar course. A review is usually held before the test dates.
Students who do not pass the grammar test at the end of the eighth-grade grammar class are held to the same testing requirement.
Complete application packet.
After reviewing the school material and praying about your decision, if you are still interested in Christ Prep, complete all necessary forms from the application packet and bring them to the family interview. Please note that priorities for course registration are based on the formal application date.
Attend a school admissions family interview.
School admission includes an interview with the admissions committee. The purpose of the meeting is to ensure each family has an opportunity to have all of their questions about Christ Prep answered and to make certain that it is the appropriate school for their children. A representative from the admissions committee contacts prospective families to arrange an interview. Admission decisions are made soon afterward.
Ensure Christ Prep has permission to receive all previously generated academic records.
Only under the most extenuating circumstances will a student be accepted without Christ Prep having received all relevant and required academic and immunization records.
Receive notification of acceptance.
Once the interview process is completed, each family receives an email indicating the admissions committee’s decision. If admissions are granted, a second e-mail is sent at a later time with instructions on accessing the school’s Sycamore Education home page for student schedules and other important information.
Complete an entrance interview with the Academic Advisor.
During this meeting, students in the ninth grade and above and their parents provide documentation of any transfer credits and/or transcripts from previous schooling. Credits that are accepted for transfer from a home-school transcript will be entered on the Christ Prep transcript as a “pass” or “fail” grade. At this meeting, families commit to graduation intentions for their student(s).
