We are now accepting applications for the 2013-2014 academic year.
ADMISSION Into CCHS…
Coastal Christian High School admits students of any race, color, national origin, or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, or other school-administered programs.
1. Acceptance Policy
Students must (1) score on grade level, (2) complete the application process to be eligible for enrollment, (3) exhibit a desire to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ, and (4) must have one parent that has professed faith in Jesus Christ and is actively involved in a local church. CCHS has been founded as a college preparatory school; on that basis an I.Q. score of at least 90 is required for admission. The student candidate must also have a Stanine score of over 3 on a recent standardized academic achievement test. The CCHS Board would like to be able to accept students of all ability levels, but believes it is unethical to accept tuition from families whose students need a level of help that CCHS would not be able to provide.
2. Enrollment Limitations
While it is our desire to meet the need of every student, CCHS cannot provide enrollment to students whose special education, behavioral, or physical needs exceed our existing programs, services, and staff capabilities. A student may be ineligible for enrollment based on intelligence and/or disabilities (ADD, ADHD, physical, mental, etc.) but will be assessed on an individual basis. Because CCHS is a private school, compliance with IEPs issued by the public school system is not required.
3. Disciplinary Exclusions
CCHS does not enroll students who have been dismissed from other schools or who have been in serious disciplinary trouble in a former school.
4. Waiting List
In the event that a class is full, a prospective student will be placed on a waiting list. Parents will be notified when space is available. Acceptance is not based on a first-come, first-served policy. Acceptance is based upon student academic needs, boy/girl ratio, and the administrator’s recommendation. In an effort to maintain a balanced boy/girl ratio, gender may also be criteria for placement.
5. Admissions Requirement Exception
Exceptions to the above admission policy will require the approval of the Board of Directors.
CCHS requires the following items as part of the admission process:
1. Birth Certificate
A copy of the child’s birth certificate must be in the school records.
2. Immunization Records
Immunizations must be up-to-date according to North Carolina law. A physician, health clinic, or local health department administering required vaccines must give a Certificate of Immunization to the person who presented the child for immunization. Immunization requirements can be found at the following website:http://www.immunizenc.com/. The certificate/record must include the following information:
· Name, sex, and date of birth
· Name and address of parent or guardian
· Number of vaccine doses given
· Date vaccines were given (month and year is acceptable for out-of-state transfer students)
· Signature of physician or health department stamp
3. Academic and Discipline Records
Parents are required to provide a current report card and achievement test scores (i.e. Stanford Achievement Test Battery, California Achievement Test, PSAT, or SAT). In addition to academic records, CCHS also requires any discipline records from previous schools and from any learning institution prior to a home school situation.
4. Recommendation Letters
Prospective students are to provide a reference letter regarding their character, academic abilities, and community involvement from a local pastor or youth pastor, a teacher or principal, and a non-family member (i.e. employer, neighbor, mentor, etc.).
