Admissions Policies

 

Students seeking admission are evaluated on the basis of their report cards, references, admission screening and interviews, and potential to perform satisfactorily at Keystone Christian Academy. Students who seek admission directly following suspension, expulsion, or behavior problems from another school may not be accepted. Keystone Christian Academy is not currently equipped with the resources to serve children who are seeking to be admitted into special educational programs. In most cases, decisions regarding admission of families to Keystone Christian Academy will be based on the date the application and fee are received in the admissions office. Current students and their siblings have priority over prospective students on the waiting list. A student can be denied admission based on academic or behavioral issues or lack of parental partnership with the school. The student needs to understand that the parent/guardian will support the authority of the school. Therefore, he/she is under the instruction and discipline of the teachers, principal, and/or any other person in authority over them in their prescribed roles at Keystone Christian Academy.
