Mission Statement

Admissions Criteria for Norfolk Christian Schools


Norfolk Christian is honored to enroll students whose families are committed to partnering in a Biblically-centered education.  Admission is selective and based on prior academic performance, work ethic, testing, demonstrated Christian character and a clear desire to attend NCS.  

Selection Considerations

Spiritual

* At least one parent must be a professing believer in Jesus
Christ, provide a written testimony of
his or her relationship with Him and be committed to a
lifestyle in agreement with our
Statement of Faith.  

* Pastoral references should attest to the regular attendance and commitment of at least one parent in a local church that teaches in agreement with our Statement of Faith.  

Academic

* Applicant transcripts and testing should show at least average
understanding of grade level
material and a clear desire to work to the best of their abilities.

* Teacher evaluations should show that applicants can succeed independently in a traditional classroom setting.

Behavioral

* Applicants should have a behavioral record that indicates a willingness to respect authority.   

* Teacher recommendations should testify to a student’s willingness to exhibit Godly character and have a positive influence on the classroom environment.

* Students and parents must be in good standing with previous schools and must not have exhibited behavior that was disruptive to the school community.

Financial

* Need-based financial aid is available each school year.  Aid is not available for preschool or part-time students and is distributed to  current families first.

* Families coming from another private school must be in good financial standing and have fulfilled their obligations before applying.  A letter on school letterhead may be requested.
