The admissions process includes an appointment with the principal, pre-entrance testing and an application packet. Parents should bring copies of report cards, achievement test results, etc. We have a readiness testing for kindergarten and a placement confirmation testing for other grades. All applications are made to the governing authority of CCA, who reserves the right to accept or reject any application. The admission procedures include the submission of a written application form with the application fee, an application review, a family interview, payment of the registration fee, and testing to enable the administration to make a responsible decision. The principal will use the information to assess the student's academic aptitude and to identify potential problems. There is an application and testing fee. This fee is due at the time of the testing and is non-refundable (unless the student is not accepted).
If an applicant is unable to keep a scheduled appointment time or is running late, please contact the school immediately so alternate arrangements can be made. Applicants that do not show up for their scheduled appointment, will be marked as a "No-Show" and may be refused future appointments.
After testing and the initial appointment, applications are reviewed and parents are notified of the results. The review process will determine entrance or rejection of all applicants. If the applicant is accepted, the next step of the process is registration.
Only the authorized guardian of a potential student may apply for admission to CCA. An authorized guardian is defined as a person who meets the current IRS criteria to claim the applicant as a dependent on their current federal tax return. Proof of the parents/guardian's compliance with this requirement may be requested by CCA at any time. This requirement must be met as a condition of continued enrollment and serves as the basis for qualification for multiple child discounts and financial aid.
It is desired that both parents profess their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. However, at least one of the two parents must have a saving faith in Jesus Christ and attend a local church on a regular basis. (John 3:3,1; 1 Peter 1:23). All applicants who are accepted are done so on a six-week trial basis.
