Admissions Policy

Fountain City Christian School recruits and admits students of any race, color or ethnic origin to all its
rights, privileges, programs and activities. In addition, the school will not discriminate on the basis of
race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies,
employment, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.

We do, however, reserve the right to deny admission / re-enrollment to any individual who cannot
benefit from enrollment based on past academic achievement, behavioral history, or whose personal
or family beliefs and/or lifestyle is not in harmony with the stated philosophy of Fountain City Christian
School.


A. GENERAL ADMISSION / ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

    At least one parent in the household must genuinely acknowledge a relationship with Jesus Christ through the process of a family interview.

    Annual signatures of the FCCS Statement of Faith are required, acknowledging a belief in these truths. It is also understood that all instruction is based on the Bible and the philosophy and objectives of FCCS. Parents must also annually sign the Statement of Cooperation acknowledging their responsibilities as FCCS parents.

    A probationary period of the first semester will be required for final placement of grade. Should a change be deemed necessary, parents will be notified before the end of the first semester. All new students will be on academic and social probation for the first semester. (Academically, the student must maintain a 70 or higher in all academic areas. Socially, their behavior must be in compliance with the guidelines listed in the Parent/Student Handbook.)

    No student shall be admitted / enrolled who:

      • Is not eligible to return to their previous school.
      • Has a history of disciplinary problems at prior schools.
      • Has academic deficiencies that cannot be addressed at FCCS. (This is based upon testing, prior school records or information received from previous instructors.)
      • Has emotional problems that cannot be met by FCCS.
      • Has a court record or a reputation that is ungodly.
      • Has a physical handicap or learning disability for which our program is not staffed.

      • In case of a divorce, the parents must submit a current parenting plan.
      • The family must have at least one parent or guardian residing in the household.
      • The family must be active in a local Bible-believing church.


B. ELEMENTARY – Grades K-6

    To be admitted / enrolled, a student must present evidence of readiness, including the satisfactory completion of work for the grade previous to that for which he/she is making application. Applicants for kindergarten must be five (5) years of age and applicants for first grade must be six (6) years of age on or before August 1 of the school year.

    Students must show at least average performance as indicated by a standardized testing program. Students must have passed the most recent grade level prior to application.
