We consider a number of criteria for students applying for admission to Southfield Christian School, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Christian Faith - Students must come from a family that celebrates biblical values. One parent (which in the case of divorced parents must be the parent with whom the student primarily resides) must be "born again" (that is, a follower of Jesus Christ who knows Him as their personal Savior) and adheres to the school's Lifestyle Statement, which includes biblically based standards and teachings regarding marriage, sexual immorality, gender identity and homosexual lifestyles. The family's active participation in a local church is also an important factor in granting admission.
- Academic Achievement - Students must have a "B" average on their report card in the core subjects, and score at grade level (above the 50th percentile) on nationally administered achievement tests. (For example, standardized tests such as ACT Aspire, MAP, MStep, and IOWA.)
- Personal Character - Both the student and parent's character, and reputation in the community, must be satisfactory and a desire to attend Southfield Christian School must be evident.
Upon admission to Southfield Christian School the parent and high school student will be deemed to have read and agree with Southfield Christian School's Doctrinal Statement, Vision, Mission, Philosophy and Lifestyle Statement, and that all matters pertaining to admission, retention, discipline, curriculum and biblical values will be determined in accordance with these statements, which are included with this application and can be found on the We Believe
page of our website.
Note: Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by September 1st of the school year.
