Thank you for expressing interest in learning more about Social Circle Christian School. Partnering with a school is a big decision for families, and our admissions team desires to be as available as we can to provide information and answer questions to help in that journey. Listed below are several steps that are necessary components of our application process for all prospective students Kindergarten through 12th Grade. Please understand that we will do our best to quickly assist your family through the steps in the process, but it may take as long as two weeks to complete. We will communicate with you via email as we maneuver through the steps together. Detailed information with financial information can be found by clicking the grade level tabs associated with this admissions page.
Tours- You are invited to visit our campus to see firsthand what makes SCCS a special place to learn, grow, and thrive. Our open house in February gives you the opportunity to meet our administrators, teachers, parents, and students as you learn about our academic programs and peek into classes. Private tours may also be scheduled anytime throughout the year.
Step 1- Submit an Application (below) along with the required documentation (listed on the application and further down on this page). If standardized testing results from the previous year cannot be attained, a $40 fee will need to be paid for placement testing. After receiving the application, we will immediately request copies of educational records from your child's current or previous school to be sent to ours for review.
Step 2- Ensure that a Character Validation and Recommendation Form (below) has been completed and returned to our office as stated in the directions.
Step 3- After all of the documents above have been received, they will be reviewed by our administrative team to ensure the structure is in place for the academic success of your child. A call will be made to share the results of our review or next steps in the process. Prior to moving to step 4, parents should thoroughly read through the Parent-Student Handbook that can be viewed on the Parent Resources tab on our website. It is vital that families understand our guiding principles, philosophies, and procedures prior to making a decision to partner with SCCS.
Step 4- A pre-enrollment partnership conference will be held with the Principal and family to explore admission, discuss the review of our Parent/Student Handbook, and address any remaining questions.
