Pre-Kindergarten Admissions Process

All prospective families are to set up an appointment with the admissions office. If you have not done so already, you may call the office at 574.293.1609 to schedule your appointment. At this appointment, we will give you an overview of the pre-kindergarten program and a tour of our facilities.

1. APPLICATION

  • Prospective families must complete and submit the online application along with a $50.00 non-refundable application fee. (Pre-Kindergarten students must be 4 years old by September 1st.)
  • A completed Pastor Recommendation form must also be submitted – (a PDF can be printed off at the completion of the online application).  Click here for the online application.

2. ACCEPTANCE

Once all the required application paperwork is submitted we will call and schedule an appointment for an interview with the elementary principal. The purposes of this interview are to familiarize you with the philosophy and goals of the school and for the school to become acquainted with you. After the interview, final acceptance will be determined and results will be shared with the family.

3. ENROLLMENT

At this point you will begin the enrollment process which includes completing and submitting the online enrollment. The online enrollment form will allow you to determine which time option you would like and the tuition payment schedule that will work best for you. Tuition payment options are annual and a ten month plan.  For the ten month payment plan, payments are due by the 1st of the month beginning August 1st.
