We are glad you are interested in pursuing Southfield Christian School, and we look forward to serving you and your family while guiding you through our admissions process.  

Elementary (K - 5) Admissions Criteria

We consider three major criteria for students applying for admission to Southfield Christian School.

  1. Christian Faith - Students must come from a family that celebrates biblical values.  One parent must be "born again" (that is, a follower of Jesus Christ who knows Him as their personal Savior).  The family's active participation in a local church is important. 
  2. 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.)
  3. Personal Character - Finally, the student's character, citizenship, and desire to attend Southfield Christian School impact admission.
Note: Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by September 1st of the school year.

Southfield Christian School's Doctrinal Statement, Vision, Mission, Philosophy and Lifestyle Statement can be found on the What We Believe page on this site.  Our Lifestyle Statement and Parental Code of Conduct can be found and downloaded on the right side of this page in the links list.

Documents may be submitted through your personal SCS admissions page once you create an account, or you may send us the above documents by email to dcollins@southfieldchristian.org, by fax at 248.356.2810, by mail, or in person.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade Gesell Testing is conducted one on one with a Southfield Christian School teacher beginning in February 2018.

The next date for group standardized testing for grades 2-5 will be Saturday, January 13, 2018. 

After you have completed the steps above and have met the admissions criteria, we will contact you to schedule a family interview. For the family interview with the principal, we require the attendance of a least one parent or guardian, together with the prospective student(s). The family's faith experience and the student's personal character will be of particular interest during this interview.

Post Admission

After the interview and acceptance, we require the following steps to complete the student's enrollment.
  1. Submit a student enrollment agreement with the enrollment fee.  The enrollment fee is $275 for the first student, plus $125 for each additional student. Enrollment fees are collected upon submission of the online enrollment agreement and will reserve your child's placement.
  2. If applicable, submit tuition assistance forms.
  3. Set up tuition payments through FACTS Management. You will receive an email from FACTS to initiate this process.
