Canterbury Christian School Admissions

Canterbury Christian School is now accepting applications for grades Kindergarten through 6th for the 2011-2012 academic year.  Using the A Beka curriculum these classes are producing students well above the national average in each class. Class size is limited to 16 in a structured traditional classroom, giving each student the benefit of a good amount of personal attention, and a sense of quiet and orderliness.

Promoting Christian Worldview

A Christian Worldview is promoted, with no bad language or teasing tolerated, and students have a comfortable feeling of supervised, planned security.

Latin is included commencing at grade 3. Uniforms are worn, and adjunct classes include music, art, handbells, and P.E.

Admission is by application, the presenting of educational records, and a personal interview is required. Testing for placement is required of all students except for kindergarten. (Parents are obligated to pay $25 for such a test.) Canterbury reserves the right to place students in the the appropriate intstructional level as determined by test results and developmental maturity.

Children must be five years old by the end of Septmber in order to be eligible for kindergarten.
