CHCS is a religious institution providing an education in a distinct Christian environment, and it believes that its biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christ-like. On those occasions in which the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home is counter to or in opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school teaches, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission to an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student. Attendance at CHCS is a privilege; students attend at the will of the CHCS Board and are enrolled for one academic year at a time.
CHCS desires for all students to succeed in our program. Thus, application for enrollment of each student will take into consideration academic competence, information gained from interviews, references, previous records and assessments.
Because CHCS does not have the personnel or resources to work with children who might have a significant learning disability and/or those who have a history of social or behavioral problems, we are unable to accept these students. This is not intended to be a reflection on the student but to keep the school from enrolling students whose needs the school cannot meet.
CHCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin in the administration of its admission policies. CHCS welcomes the enrollment of students of all races and nationalities, and accords to them all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students at the school. Final admission will be based on the policies stated above, classroom availability, and the enrollment procedures listed below.
Procedure for Admission
I. Forms: Each potential enrollee must complete the following forms in applying for admission.
a. Enrollment application accompanied by a non-refundable application fee.
b. Immunization records and medical history.
c. Authorization for medical treatment.
d. Transfer of records request.
e. Copy of the Birth Certificate
f. Financial contract for tuition payment.
g. Parent and school partnership commitment form
h. MS/HS student life sheet
II. Admission Assessment
a. A personal interview with a member of the administrative staff is required of each prospective student and parent or legal guardian to determine if CHCS can meet the educational needs and expectations of the student and family. Our desire is that each student who is accepted at CHCS be successful and a complement to the school family. We believe that a strong partnership between school and home is a key ingredient to academic, social and spiritual success for each student.
b. Students and parents/guardians must be in agreement with the Biblical teachings and code of conduct of CHCS (see page 22) and must agree to maintain a home environment and lifestyle that are in harmony with the biblical lifestyle taught at CHCS.
III. Admission Acceptance
a. The school administration will evaluate all admission information and reach a decision concerning acceptance.
b. Each student's admission or rejection will be by written notification. Students are not enrolled until official notification has been received.
c. CHCS believes that student behavior and academic performance are best when they are under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian, therefore, students must live in the home or be living with a guardian(s) in order to become or remain enrolled at CHCS.
Late Enrollment: Tuition cost will be pro-rated according to the time of year a student enrolls after the school term has begun.
Withdrawals: If a student is withdrawn from school and tuition has been paid in advance then a prorated refund will be given based on the withdrawal date.
