ADMISSIONS

Before students are enrolled it is required that parents meet with the administrator.

Students transferring from another school will be tested to determine learning level before placement.

Foothills does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin.

The principal will decide if Foothills Christian Elementary School is able to meet the needs of each student. In some cases, it may be in the best interest of the student or school to refuse the enrollment or re-enrollment request of a student. Attendance at Foothills Christian School is a privilege and, as such, Foothills reserves the right to dis-enroll or refuse the enrollment of any student(s).

Parents sign at the time of enrollment indicating that they are responsible for reading and understanding the student handbook when they receive it. They also agree to abide by the Rules of Conduct and Dress Code as well as the Classroom & Conflict Resolution Policies (Matthew 18 Principle) and the Parent & Student Commitment in the student handbook.

Admission & continued enrollment will be determined by:
1. The student’s and parent’s commitments toward their role in the student’s education. (Read the parent/student commitment section in this handbook)
2. The student’s willingness to attend Foothills Christian School and follow its rules and policies.
3. The student’s desire to grow and mature in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
4. The student’s academic, financial, and special needs

KINDERGARTEN ADMISSION

Our Kindergarten is a quality Reading, Phonics & Writing Program. The student must be at least 5 years of age by the first day of school for us to accept enrollment papers and assign a testing date. Students must pass the Reading Readiness test with an 80% or above. Admission is not based on intelligence but on maturity and an ability to learn and work independently.

Children entering Kindergarten must be up to date on immunizations by the first day of school (and show proof) before the child will be accepted. Parents may sign a waiver exempting their child from this state requirement if there is a religious or personal conviction against immunizations.

Returning families are given priority over other applicants and have their own two week enrollment period. Foothills Church Members are given next priority with their own one-week enrollment period.
