Enrollment Process

Admissions Policy

We welcome all children whose families desire a Risen Christ education. No child will be denied enrollment on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status or gender.

To insure that Risen Christ School is financially accessible to all, tuition is charged on a sliding scale based on family income. Please visit the Tuition/Finances section for more information.

Guidelines

Kindergarten and First Grade: To enter kindergarten, students must be five (5) years old by September 1 of the current school year. To enter first grade, students must be six (6) by September 1 of the current school year. Exceptions may be made by the administration based upon the results of appropriate testing and/or interviews.

Parents/guardians of kindergarten students must provide a copy of the child’s preschool screening report, updated immunization records and a copy of his/her birth certificate.

Transfer Students: Students transferring in to Risen Christ School are asked to complete an enrollment questionnaire and may be given a number of assessments to assist in making appropriate instructional placement decisions.

Wait Lists: Risen Christ School will accept students for enrollment at any grade level, based on the policies and guidelines set by the administration. Once a grade’s enrollment limit has been reached and a waiting list must be established, the following criteria are used to establish its priorities:

  • Current students and/or siblings will have first priority
  • All others* will advance on the waiting list according to the date of their application

* Dual language grade levels will have separate wait lists for native speakers of each language in order to help maintain the integrity of the model.
