The admissions procedure will allow the school to accurately identify and admit students from families who have clearly expressed convictions that are similar to the school’s regarding the education of children. The selection and make-up of the school’s student body is second only to staff selection in the impact it has upon the school’s mission. The family-like atmosphere The Terra Nova School seeks to foster will be due in great measure to the similarity of biblical convictions and principles taught and lived out in many of the homes of our students. As the Lord blesses us with growth and change, we want to do all we can to maintain and build up that atmosphere.
A student’s academic achievements will be considered in the application process, but only for class placement, not as the primary determinant for acceptance. We are seeking to enroll those students who, because of their own families’ priorities, will most benefit from what The Terra Nova School can offer them.
1 – Family Interest FormPlease read The Terra Nova School Parent-Student Handbook (link below) in its entirety before filing out this form. We highly recommend that this information be reviewed and discussed as a family and that you pray for the Lord’s guidance in this decision for your family.
2 – Interview RequestThe Interview Request form is a two-step process. Please enter your name and email, and check your Inbox for the confirmation email that will invite you to complete the form. Complete the Interview Request Form with questions related to your family. Once this form is received, a reference request will be sent to your pastor. When the pastoral reference is returned and reviewed, our Admissions Team may reach out to schedule an interview.
3 – Complete Application
After your family interview and approval with the Admissions Team, we will send you a Family Application to complete. Upon receiving and reviewing your application, the Head of School, with counsel from the Admissions Team, will make the final admissions decision and will contact the parents with the decision regarding acceptance.Note: We reserve the right to admit students in a manner that takes into consideration the capacity of the school to meet the needs and educational benefit of both the individual student and all the students of that class. We do not base our admissions on the ability of the family to pay full tuition.
4 – Enrollment and Tuition AgreementAccepted applicants will receive appropriate information regarding tuition and financial arrangements and will be sent a Tuition Agreement form and set up for billing. We do not “re-enroll” annually but consider that students enrolled are in our community of students until they formally withdraw.
5 – Review School Uniform Policy and Supply ListWe will provide you with details of what you will need to begin class in the fall.
6 – Placement AssessmentEach student will be assessed to be placed in the appropriate instructional level/grade.
