Admissions ProcessOur Admissions Process includes several steps intended to assist your family in making the decision for Christian education. You may have already participated by attending an Admissions Event or a personal tour. We want you to know us well and understand how we partner in education. We'll invite you to a concert or athletic event so you can get a stronger sense of our outstanding programs and community.
At every step along the way, we're available to answer questions and connect you with teachers and other staff members. You can always start by speaking with Dianne Grasmeyer in Admissions who's happy to help your individual process.
The Application Process for new families.
