Admission Requirements
We require copies of recent report cards and standardized testing scores.  If a student has been home schooled, we may do an entrance test to determine the best class placement.  Kindergarten students may be evaluated for readiness to begin Kindergarten.  Students entering Kindergarten must be five years old by September 1st. Applicants for Transitional Kindergarten must be 5 by January 1st.

Application Process
To apply for admission, we require the following:
Application Form
• Copy of Birth Certificate
• Copy of Immunization Record
• Copy of most recent report card (1st grade and older)
• Copy of most recent achievement test score (1st grade and older)
• $300 non-refundable application fee

When all of these items are received, your application will be processed and you will be called to schedule a family interview with the Principal. Students are admitted upon board approval after completing an application and the family interview.  All students are admitted on a probationary basis during the first nine weeks.

Admission Policy
At least one parent is expected to actively participate in the worship activities of a Bible believing church. Priority will be given to parents who are members of a Bible believing church.

Children whose parents do not meet the above expectation may be admitted under the following conditions:
1. The parents want their children to receive a Christ-centered education.
2. The parents are committed to supporting the Purposes and Goals of Alameda Christian School.

Students are admitted after a family interview and upon board approval.

Special Needs
Admission of students with special needs will be dependent upon the school’s ability to meet these needs. Alameda Christian School may be unable to accommodate students who demonstrate severe grade level deficiencies or behavioral problems.

Non-Discrimination Policy
Alameda Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to student at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship program, and other school-administered programs.

Tuition Aid
Tuition aid is awarded primarily to low-income families or to families who need tuition assistance due to a temporary financial setback.  Providing high-quality education is an expensive proposition, but it is our earnest desire that every family that desires Christian education have an opportunity to do so.

Families who wish to be considered for tuition assistance can obtain the forms from the school office or download the forms.  Students must first apply for admission and be accepted before the tuition aid application will be considered.  The process usually requires 1-2 months.
