The Admissions Process
Lighthouse Christian Academy reviews applications on a rolling basis from February to August for the upcoming school year. Families who wish to apply need to attend one of our Open Houses which occur monthly beginning in November.
Students entering all grades will be assessed for readiness. Testing dates are in April.
Families will be contacted to schedule an interview with the Head of School.
Application does not guarantee enrollment.
Please contact us if you’d like additional information.
Lighthouse Christian Academy has adopted the following Admissions Policies to ensure that standards of admission agree with the school’s Mission and Vision:
- All families must submit a completed application for all prospective students.
- All families are required to be interviewed by the Head of School and other administrators. The Headmaster or Board members may require additional interviews if necessary.
- All families must provide a completed Pastor Recommendation Form.
- The administration of a Lighthouse Christian Academy Entrance test will be necessary for grade placement of any prospective student(s).
- Parents of students in Lighthouse Christian Academy should have a clear understanding of the Biblical philosophy and purpose of Lighthouse Christian Academy. This includes an understanding that our students will be instructed in the clear teaching of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s programs.
- After the family interview and reviewing all other required materials (as stated on the application form), Lighthouse will make the decision of whether to admit the student(s).
- Lighthouse Christian Academy will then notify the parents in writing with the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, the parents will have 7 days to complete all enrollment documents, including financial arrangements for tuition and fees.
- A child must have reached the age of five years by September 1st of the fall in which he/she would be entering Kindergarten. Individual exceptions may be considered after testing.
- If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his or her school work and behavior compare favorably with the comparable grade at Lighthouse Christian Academy, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he or she is expected to enter. If it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that he or she repeat the previous grade at Lighthouse.
