APPLICATION & ENROLLMENT STEPS FOR LIGHTHOUSE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

1. APPLY: Complete the online application, including uploading all necessary forms, and payment of Application Fee of $90 per student. Please Note: Application Fees are non-refundable.

2. STUDENT ASSESSMENT: A member of our Admissions Team will contact you to schedule a Student Assessment for each applicant. Admission testing/assessment is required for all candidates applying to kindergarten through grade 8. In general, assessment/test requirements are as follows:

  • Applicant Assessments are conducted on campus and take approximately 45 minutes to one hour
  • Kindergarten – Grade 2:  One to One, individualized testing
  • Grades 3 – 8: Individualized testing with maximum of 4 students per session

3. In some cases, applicants will be contacted for a parent interview with one of our Administrative Team members.

4. ADMISSIONS DECISIONS are based on the strength of each applicant’s overall application. Parents and guardians will receive one of three decision notifications:

  • Accepted: Applicant meets the Admission criteria of Lighthouse Christian School and enrollment will be offered.
  • Candidate Pool: Applicant meets the Admission criteria of Lighthouse Christian School, but the number of qualified applicants exceeds class capacity. If/when openings in a class occur, a qualified applicant will be selected from the Candidate Pool and offered Admission. Those we are unable to accommodate are encouraged to apply for the following year.
  • Non-Acceptance: Applicant does not meet Lighthouse’s admission criteria and enrollment will not be offered.

5. COMPLETE ENROLLMENT: Applicants who are continuing on to enrollment, will receive information and steps, via email, to complete your Online Enrollment packet, including payment of the Enrollment Fee.

6. STUDENT RECORDS:  Lighthouse must receive all required documents/information prior to the student’s first day of attendance. Required documents include the official student transcript from the student’s previous school, immunization records, and any other required forms.

 

Confidentiality of Admissions Records 

The Admissions Office protects the privacy of all applicants by limiting access to application materials to only those officers and employees of Lighthouse Christian School officially concerned with the admissions process. All material submitted and acquired in connection with each student application will become part of our confidential admissions files. At no time will students, parents/guardians, or others not associated with School admissions have access to them. Admissions records will not become part of a student’s permanent record even as an enrolled Lighthouse student. Additionally, the school will not disclose the identity of individual applicants when providing any agency with any required statistical data.
