Admissions Admissions Policy BEFORE STUDENTS ARE ENROLLED, IT IS REQUIRED THAT PARENTS MEET WITH THE ADMINISTRATOR. Foothills Christian Schools do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin. The principal will decide if Foothills School is able to meet the needs of each student. In some cases, it may be in the best interest of the student or school to refuse the enrollment or re-enrollment request of a student. Attendance at Foothills Christian Schools is a privilege and, as such, Foothills reserves the right to dis-enroll or refuse to enroll any student(s). Parents sign at time of enrollment indicating that they understand and agree to follow the policies in the student handbook. They also agree to abide by the Rules of Conduct and Dress Code as well as the Classroom & Conflict Resolution Policies (Matthew 18 Principle) and the Parent & Student Commitment in the student handbook. ADMISSION & CONTINUED ENROLLMENT WILL BE DETERMINED BY: The student’s and parent’s commitment toward their role in the student’s education. (Read the parent/student commitment section of the FCMS handbook, pg. 27) The student’s willingness to attend Foothills Christian Schools and follow the rules and policies. The student’s desire to grow and mature in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The student’s academic and/or special needs. The family’s financial history (accounts must be current in order to register for the next school year). Students entering the 6th grade must be up to date on immunizations by the first day of school (and show proof) before the student will be accepted. Seventh grade students must, by law, show proof of the T-Dap (Whooping cough booster) shot before the first day of school. We are no longer allowed to accept Personal Belief Waivers per the California Health Department. Students transferring from another school will be tested to determine their learning level before placement. Parents then meet with the principal to decide which curriculum would best meet their child’s ability and learning style. New Middle School students interview individually with the principal and submit a written testimony, obtain a recommendation from their youth pastor or spiritual leader and sign a commitment form. RETURNING FAMILIES are given priority over other applicants and have a two week enrollment period. FOOTHILLS CHURCH MEMBERS are given next priority with a one week enrollment period.
