6 steps to apply
ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR fall 2015
1. Getting started
For most families, the application process begins through an introduction to our school. You may have heard about us from friends, family, fellow church members or perhaps you located us online or simply drove by our campus. We recommend you schedule your own individual tour to learn more about our school and community. If timing allows, our Open House held each November, allows a comprehensive look at our K-12 program, with our entire faculty available for your questions. Simply phone us at 512-899-8095, email us in the Admissions Office, or you can inquire now online.
2. Submitting an Application
Your admissions file is opened once we receive a completed application and fee. For each applicant we also require a copy of a birth certificate, family picture, principal recommendation form, teacher recommendation form, and student academic records for the current and previous two years. Note these forms are available by clicking in the bar on the left of this page under Application Forms.
3. Understanding Us
We want your family to fully embrace our Classical Christian program. In order to make the most of your partnership with us, it is important to understand what we do and why we do it. We require all families to read the following book prior to their interview:
Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning by Douglas Wilson.
Students applying for grades K-4 participate in an academic/developmental assessment held at Regents. Students applying for admission to grades 5-12 are required to take the ISEE entrance exam. You can identify testing dates and locations at www.iseetest.org. Regents administers this test several times during the year. Other testing times may be available. Check with the admissions office if posted testing dates are not feasible.
5. The Interview
The family or parent interview is a vital part of the admissions process. Once all paperwork and testing is complete, we meet with both parents (and students applying to grades 7-12). The interview provides a time for us to get to know one another more personally and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
Ideally, the process begins in the fall of the academic year prior to the year your student hopes to attend. Applications are due by mid-January for decision notification in mid March. All paperwork, interviews and testing must be complete by mid February. After priority admissions are complete, applications are accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis and spaces are offered as available. If an applicant and family are found to be admissible but no space is available at that time you have the option of remaining in a waiting pool to be considered should a spot become available.
