- The student's academic success and behavioral good standing from the former school(s) must be evident
- Admission testing must indicate potential success in our academic environment
Before you start the admissions process, we ask that at least one parent schedule a campus tour or attend one of our preview days. The admission process begins with the online application for each students and requires a $25 non-refundable application fee for each applicant. Once the application for admission is processed, the admissions director will arrange for an academic interview with one of our academic counselors, this applies to applicants applying for 1st-12th grade only. A copy of recent grades and standardized test scores will be necessary for this meeting. After the applicants academic interview, the admissions committee will determine if further placement testing needs to be administered. PPCA conducts placement testing for all homeschool students.
There is a yearly $250 registration fee for each student and a one-time family fee of $400 per family, which must accompany a signed financial contract in order for the student's placement to be secured. Upon receiving a letter of acceptance and offer of contract, parents should sign and return the contract with the registration and family fees. Parents enter into a binding contract with Park Place Christian Academy for each school year which clearly states the tuition agreement. Because PPCA also makes financial commitments in the form of contracts to our faculty based on the number of students enrolled and orders curriculum for each child one year at a time, these contracts remain binding agreements. Registration and family fees are non-refundable. It should be noted that cumulative records or letters of good standing cannot be provided on delinquent accounts.
A waiting pool is in place for grades that are full. To be put on the waiting list, the online admissions application must be completed. The waiting list is only current for the year in which the applicant is applying for admission. Waiting list do not carry over to the next school year.
