Step 1: Contact Admissions
If you would like to begin our school application process, please contact our admissions office to schedule a school tour. Simply fill out the School Inquiry form at the bottom of the page, or email email@example.com.
Step 2: Interview
An interview with the principal will be scheduled once classroom availability is determined. All transferring students from 1st - 12th grades must have a personal interview with the principal before enrollment can begin. Students seeking enrollment into Kindergarten will meet the school principal, but an interview is not required.
Step 3: Placement Testing
Placement testing is required if the new student is seeking to transfer from public school. We do not accept “Standards of Learning” results. If the new student is seeking to transfer from another private or Christian school, we will accept Standardized Testing results (Stanford Achievement, Iowa Assessments, etc.) Placement testing may still be required.
All placement testing is a $75 fee (no checks accepted.)
Step 4: Pastoral Recommendation
If students inquiring are 7th grade or older, a Pastoral recommendation must be provided from the church they currently attend.
Step 5: Form Submission
The following list of forms will be completed and submitted in entirety for enrollment:
Birth certificate, shot records, school transcripts (if entering older than K5), pastoral recommendation (if entering 7th grade or older), physical exam.
If you have a student starting Kindergarten (K4 or K5), or moving in from another state, the student must have a physical exam. The required Commonwealth of Virginia school entrance form is available online for your physician to complete. MCH 213G, revised 2014.
Step 6: Uniforms
Students must purchase uniforms after formal acceptance into Heritage Christian School. Uniforms can be purchased through Lands' End online. K4 students are not required to be in uniform.
