Apply To Southeast
Here, your student will experience Biblical Integration in all subjects, as well as teachers and faculty who will point them to Christ throughout their school day.
Welcome to Southeast Christian School, and thank you for your interest in our program! While we pride ourselves in being academically rigorous and providing an excellent Transition Kindergarten through Eighth-grade education, our primary goal is to partner with families who desire Christian education for their students. Here, your student will experience Biblical Integration in all subjects, as well as teachers and faculty who will point them to Christ throughout their school day.
Before you begin our application process, please read through our Statement of Faith. Southeast Christian School requires at least one parent/guardian to affirm our Statement of Faith in order to enroll.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Admissions Office at email@example.com, or by calling 303-841-5988.
5 Easy Steps:
In-person, private tours are scheduled on a case-by-case basis with our Admissions Office. Our 45-minute tour provides a general overview of the school, including a look into classrooms, program offerings, and what a typical school day looks like here at SCS. You can schedule yours here.
*Please note: a tour is not required for admission to SCS. Families who elect not to tour with us must instead participate in a family interview during the application process.
Families who wish to begin the Admissions process must fill out an application for each of their students. Please allot approximately 15 minutes per application. In the application, please ensure that you:
Every student applying to SCS must assess with us. We do not accept test scores from a student’s current school in lieu of an assessment. Kindergarten Readiness Assessments for Kindergarten applicants are scheduled on a case-by-case basis by reaching out to the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. First through Eighth-grade student assessments are scheduled on the first and third Friday of each month when school is in session. You can request an assessment day here.
-Kindergartners participate in a Kindergarten Readiness Assessment with a staff member.
-First-grade students participate in the online STAR Early Literacy assessment.
-Second through Eighth-grade students participate in the online STAR Math and STAR Reading assessments.
*Middle School students also participate in a student interview with a staff member on the day of their assessment.
Please allow up to one hour for your student(s) to assess. Southeast Christian School reserves the right to request that a student be brought back in for additional testing if needed, as determined by our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) department.
Once your application and assessment are complete, our team will review it and make a decision regarding acceptance. The SCS Admissions Committee reviews applications on the second and fourth Monday of each month. Once an acceptance decision is made, the Admissions Office will communicate it to the family.
If a student is accepted, there are two ways that the application can progress:
About the Admission Process
Q: What is the cutoff date for Transition Kindergarten (TK) or Kindergarten?
A: Incoming TK and Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by October 1.
Q: If it is going to take time to receive my student’s report card, should I go ahead and submit the application without it?
A: We are unable to progress a student in the admissions process without a complete application, which includes a report card upload. Please take your time filling out the application and submit it once it is ready.
Q: My student was previously in preschool or was homeschooled and does not have a report card. What should I do?
A: Please reach out to the Admissions Office at email@example.com, and we will work with you on a solution.
Q: My student was previously homeschooled and does not have a student appraisal contact that is not a parent. Who should I put down?
A: The goal of the student appraisal is for SCS to get a picture of the whole student. If you do not have someone who knows your student in an academic setting, you may then enter a pastor, coach, mentor, or family friend who knows them instead.
Q: In what instance would my student need to come in for an additional assessment?
A: In general, students who score two or more grade levels below their current grade level, or have a low scaled score in math or reading will need to assess with our MTSS department. This is to ensure the triangulation of data for an accurate picture of your student’s scores, and to eliminate variables, such as environmental distractions.
Q: Once my student’s application is in the Review phase, how long will it be before a decision is communicated to me?
A: We do our best to communicate Admissions decisions to families as soon as possible; however, the Review phase is dependent on the availability of our staff. Please feel free to reach out to the Admissions Office if you would like to check on the status of your student’s application.
Q: My student was offered enrollment with space available, and I would like him/her to start school at SCS tomorrow. Is this possible?
A: Start dates are determined by the school and are dependent on the availability of resources and curriculum, and partially to the discretion of the classroom teacher. Typically, students are able to start school within a week of the complete enrollment packet being submitted, with the exception that start dates do not fall on Fridays.
Q: My student was offered enrollment, but there is no vacant spot in his/her grade. How long will it be before a spot opens up?
A: Openings are typically dependent on a current family withdrawing from our program. There is always a chance that a spot will become available at any time, but there are no guarantees. You may choose to stay in the waitpool as long as you would like.
Q: Why does SCS use a waitpool instead of a waitlist?
A: There are several factors we take into consideration when determining to whom we will offer an open spot. With this in mind, admission at Southeast is not simply first-come, first-served.
