As we begin the enrollment process for the 2014-2015 school year, I hope that you share my opinion that this has been an outstanding year for the students of Faith Christian School. In the face of depressed economic conditions, our enrollment has actually grown over the past school year. I feel this reflects, in part, the realization by our community of the importance of education as a means of achieving success in the face of a more competitive society. As college tuitions inflate and competition for scholarships and good jobs increases, we appreciate that a Christian private school education is an investment in our children's future.
For your assistance in the re-enrollment process, I have included this packet for you to complete
as the beginning of priority enrollment approaches on January 1, 2014. Additional copies of this re-enrollment packet are available in the school office. In order to re-enroll your child, this packet must be completed and returned with the enrollment fee before admission for the 2014-2015 school year may be finalized. Please note that signatures from all parties with custodial rights are required on these forms. Priority enrollment is limited to the months of January and February:
- First priority will be given to students who are currently enrolled.
- Second priority will be extended to children whose parents are members of Faith Presbyterian Church.
- Final priority will be given to new students who are siblings of currently-enrolled students.
Please keep in mind that open enrollment will begin on March 1, 2014. All priorities will be removed during open enrollment. At this point students who meet the school's admission criteria will be admitted in the order in which their completed applications are received. Classes and sections will be limited based on our published student-teacher ratios; I am committed to maintaining this important quality of our school as we move forward. To ensure your child’s enrollment, it is important that you submit your re-enrollment packet and fees by the deadline.
Allow me to take this opportunity to encourage you to spread the word in our community of how God is working through the lives of our Faith "family" to provide a superior Christian education. As our enrollment grows, we will be able to offer even more opportunities while continuing to keep our costs affordable.
Please keep us in your prayers as we move through this very important enrollment period. We pray that God will continue to use us as we interview prospective families and make enrollment decisions for next year.
