An Affordable, Private Christian Education

Admissions Requirements

The foundation of the SBCA admissions criteria and model is built on the concept of a partnership with Christian families. We recognize the God-given responsibility of each parent to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Therefore, we are dedicated to being a resource for families, encouraging and facilitating the engagement of parents in the education of their children, and supporting the values espoused in the home and church. (Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4) The following criteria are used to determine admissions:

  • Since SBCA is a Christian school in partnership with the family, at least one parent or guardian must acknowledge Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and agree with the SBCA statement of faith.
  • A parent/guardian must submit an Application for Admission and agree to the Parent Commitment outlined on the application.
  • A parent/guardian must have documentation showing the student has successfully completed the previous grade by a demonstrated proficiency of at least 70% or higher in reading, English, and math. If the new student has taken any standardized tests, the student should have earned national scores of at least 50th percentile or higher in reading, English, and math.
  • The student and their parents applying for admissions will be interviewed by a school administrator to assess the student’s academic motivation, spiritual maturity, and potential impact on the culture of the school. SBCA administration will consider things such as family cooperation and reasons for desiring enrollment at SBCA.
  • Students must exhibit appropriate levels of behavior and maturity. Parents must disclose any previous record of social, behavioral, or mental health issues. If evidence of nondisclosure occurs after acceptance, the student could become subject to dismissal. SBCA does not have provisions for children with special needs.
  • To continue to be enrolled, a student must exhibit satisfactory academic achievement, emotional stability, positive social behavior, and good moral character. Students must be willing to cooperate with teachers and administration.
  • Students must be age four on or before September 1 for admission into the K4 program, and age five for admission into the K5 program. Birth certificates are required upon application of all new students. Students must be of suitable ages for their grades. Grade placement is made at the discretion of the Head of School based upon the student's ability to perform the work of that grade level.
  • Students currently enrolled in a Homeschool Program will be required to take reading and math placement tests.
  • The Head of School will make the final decision concerning admissions and acceptance of applications.

We are committed to promoting academic excellence in a safe, caring, family atmosphere that encourages students to reach their full, God-given potential.
