What documents do I need in order to complete the application process?

Checklists for document requirements are listed above.

Will my student need to take an entrance test?

Applicants for kindergarten through 12th grade may be required to take an entrance exam. Applicants are put through a first review (academic and behavior records) by the review committee. If the review committee wishes to move forward with the applicant, you will then be invited to take the next steps, which is the entrance exam. This is not a placement test. It is used in determining if a student will be accepted into Trinity Christian Academy.
