Academic Screening Policy
Students applying for admission to Providence Classical School will be screened for academic placement. If unable to adequately discern the needs of the student, PCS may request further professional testing be conducted at the parents’ expense. The testing results will be evaluated by PCS in consultation with the parents. If it is determined that the needs of the student exceed the professional resources of the school, then admission will be denied.

Families of all faith backgrounds who are seeking a classical, Christian education for their child are welcome to apply to PCS. However, parents or guardians whose children are enrolled at PCS who may not totally agree or personally embrace the school’s Statements of Faith and Philosophy should understand that the statement content is integrated into the school curriculum and activities. Providence Classical School admits students of any race, color, religion, national and 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 and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship programs, or other school-administered programs.

Kindergarten Entrance Policy

1) The prospective student must turn five no later than December 31st of the year of entrance into Kindergarten.
2) The prospective student must demonstrate readiness for Kindergarten via multiple assessments, to include the current kindergarten screening process as well as other assessments deemed necessary by the school.
