Southwest Christian School is committed to diversity and actively seeks students who can contribute to the activities of the school and who will profit from a Christ-centered, college preparatory education. Enrollment is open to all college bound students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin who meet the entrance requirements, who agree to support the mission statement of the school, and who strive both in conduct and achievement to maintain satisfactory progress. Admission to SCS shall be determined by an entrance exam, previous school records, recommendations, visit day (grades 4-12 required), and a school interview that includes parent(s) and the applicant.
Students admitted to SCS must meet the following behavior standards: No expulsion, suspension, or serious discipline problems in another school. Students should have no history of behavior problems with law enforcement agencies, church youth groups or other similar organizations. Failure to furnish information concerning behavior problems of any kind is considered grounds for rejection or dismissal from school.
Students transferring to the school in grades 9-12 are required to have units of credit corresponding to those offered at SCS. Applications may be filed throughout the year, but a limited number of spaces per class make it advisable to apply during first round placements in the spring prior to fall admission. Students who demonstrate academic ability, preparation, acceptable conduct, and maturity consistent with the standards and purpose of the school will be invited on an annual basis to continue their enrollment at Southwest Christian School. All inquiries about admission should be directed to Kim Bentley for grades Early Childhood through sixth grade and Libby Madison for grades 7-12.
Applicants will be notified by mail of the results once the above criteria have been met. Admission will be based on the criteria and space available. All new students are admitted on a conditional status the first year of enrollment at Southwest Christian School.
