The purpose of this procedure is to ensure that:

  •  All applications for admission are dealt with justly, equitably and promptly.
  •  All applicants for admission understand and support the unique Christian character of this school asdescribed in its documents.
  1. The principal will acquaint the (new) parents/guardians with the school’s basis, purpose, policies, and programs by providing them with a copy of the Admission Policy, Information Handbook and an Application Package.
  2. Parents/Guardians registering students at the school for the first time will submit a completed Application Package, a Course Selection Sheet for the appropriate grade and a $500.00 non-refundable registration deposit which will be deducted from the tuition fees for the year if the application for admission is accepted. If the application is rejected by the school the deposit will be returned.
  3. Parents/Guardians who have students registered at the school will re-register for a new school year by submitting a Student Information Form and a Course Selection sheet for the appropriate grade(s). New students from such families will also sign the Student Agreement Form.
  4. The principal will interview all parents/guardians who are new to the school. This interview will confirm that the parents/guardians understand and accept the vision, mission, goals and policies of the school and that the school is able to provide a program of study appropriate to the needs and aspirations of the student and the parents/guardians. This interview will also establish the student’s willingness to attend the school.
  5. Parents are expected to contact the Business Administrator, (648-2114 ext. 139) for information as needed, e.g. tuition rates, tuition reductions, Tuition Assistance Fund, or the tuition payment policy, and to indicate their willingness to accept the financial responsibility for tuition and other fees.
  6. The principal may, if necessary, with the permission of the parents/guardians, contact the principal of the school formerly attended by the student to clarify any academic issues that may arise in the course of the application process.
  7. When decision on the application has been made, the Board of Directors will contact the applicant to welcome them to the school community or to inform the applicant that the application has been rejected.
  8. Acceptance of the application will be based on the following factors:
    1. The availability of an appropriate program and staffing to meet the needs of the student. There maybe some instances where the school lacks the resources to serve the student (e.g. Students with exceptional needs, those not able to speak English, or those with exceptional behavioral issues)
    2. The willingness of the parents/guardians and student(s) to support the school’s policies and programs as evidenced by their signature on the Student Enrollment Agreement and the Student Agreement Form included with the Application for Admission.
    3. The availability of space in the classes required by the student.
    4. The acceptance by the parents/guardians of the responsibility for paying tuition and other fees.
    5. The availability of adequate information from the student’s previous school to enable the principal to make an informed decision about the student’s placement.
    6. The principal’s determination that the student will be able to participate constructively in a structured program of Christian studies.
  9. Applicants who are not residents of Canada will be asked to provide proof of their citizenship or immigrant status in Canada.
  10. The principal will make a recommendation to the Board of Directors for the acceptance or rejection of the application for admission. The Board of Directors reserves the right to deny any application for admission if in its judgment such an admission would not be in the best interests of the school or the student(s) for whom the application is being made.
  11. If an admission is based on false or misleading information, the Board of Directors, upon the recommendation of the principal, reserves the right to withdraw the approval of the application at any time.
  12. If the applicants wish to challenge the decision of the principal on the rejection of an application for admission or on the grade or program placement of a student, they may appeal in writing to an Admissions Appeal Committee consisting of two members of the Board of Directors, one vice-principal and the principal. The decision of this committee will be final.
