ADMISSIONS PROCEDURE 


Lifestyle Christian Academy is open to all parents interested in securing a quality Christian education for their children, whom the school finds qualified for admission and who agrees to abide by Lifestyle Christian Academy rules, dress code, disciplinary code, etc. Parents/students  should also agree to be courteous and respectful to peers, staff and other daily associates. It should always be understood that it is a privilege and not a right to attend Lifestyle Christian Academy. Any student who does not conform to the school셲 standard of conduct and/or who is unwilling to adjust to our code of conduct will forfeit this privilege.

 

We believe the Bible mandates that the primary responsibility of each student셲 education rests with the parents, and we view the school셲 role as one of partnership with the parents in this endeavor. In order to establish and maintain a successful partnership, it is essential that parents be in agreement with the philosophies and intentions of the school. If, at any point during the school year, parents find themselves disagreeing with the philosophy, standards or administration of the school, they should make every effort to work towards a solution, together with the administration. If a harmonious solution cannot be reached, the student may be asked to leave the school.

 

Lifestyle Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic background and all rights, privileges, programs and activities pertaining to the school are made available to all students attending the school. Lifestyle Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic background in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, sport codes and other school-administered programs.

 

We do screen applicants on the basis of the Christian faith and lifestyle, academic ability, character, and desire and willingness to participate in the LCA program.

 

 

ADMISSION POLICY 


Christianity and the Bible is the only religious medium used and adhered to. 

 

Both parents and student attend an interview with the Principal, or his/her duly appointed Representative, during which the procedures of the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) Curriculum is thoroughly discussed and explained. An application form is completed and submitted by the parent/s, accompanied by the required documentation and the necessary fees (pertaining to diagnostic tests) are paid. Students are evaluated by means of a diagnostic test that is conducted according to AEE (Accelerated Education Enterprises) standards and procedures, prior to confirmation of admission of students into the school.

 

The Admissions Officer, namely the person to whom this authority is delegated by the Principal, is responsible for the administration of student admissions to the school. Parents are notified of the outcome of their applications, once the necessary financial credit checks are done, all required documentation attached to the application has been deemed satisfactory and after the results of diagnostic tests performed, has been reviewed by the school. At this point the parents and student will be invited to meet with the Principal, to discuss the outcome of the Diagnostic test and the academic future of the student at the school.

 

Only at the point of confirmation of acceptance into the school, will parents be required to pay the applicable once-off registration fee and/or any other relevant school fees, as determined by the management of the school, for that particular year of admission. Parents will be informed, assisted and guided as to the ordering of school uniforms, at the point of confirmation of acceptance of the student into the school, as well.
