Admissions

Our Policy

 

Admission to Foothills Community Christian School is by application only and based on the following criteria.  Acceptance, along with any terms and conditions, is determined by the administration.

 

1. Christian Faith – Students must come from a family that celebrates Biblical values.  We require that either a father or mother be born again; that is, be a believer in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.  The personal faith of the student is of particular interest to us in the application process.  An interview by the Head of School with student and parents is required.

 

2. Academic Achievement – In consideration of our curriculum, all new students entering Kindergarten – 8th grade applying to Foothills Community Christian School must be tested by one of our staff members prior to grade placement. High school student’s placement is determined from official transcripts.  A copy of the student’s official transcript and immunization records must be given to FCCS when entering school. 

 

3. Personal Character – Consideration of character, citizenship, and especially a student’s desire to attend Foothills Community Christian School are important criteria in the admission process.  References from the student’s pastor as well as one former teacher are required for students entering Junior High and High School.

 

4. Age Requirement – Students entering Pre-Kindergarten must reach the age of four years old by September 10th. Students entering Kindergarten must reach the age of five years old by September 10th.
