As you begin the search for a school that will align with your family values spiritually and academically, know that you are invited and welcome to come to Christian Heritage to look around, and ask questions to understand better who we are and if our school will be the best fit for your family. Our admissions philosophy is not designed to fill student seats, but to ensure that school, family and students all agree on basic foundational ideas that will create an environment for a successful and positive educational and spiritual experience for all involved.
INQUIRE: We invite you to complete the New Student Inquiry, peruse our website, talk to current families, and research Classical Christian education. It is best to begin learning about the school in the fall of the academic year prior to the year for which you would like to apply, although you may inquire at any time. You may also make an inquiry by calling the Director of Admissions at 903-663-4151.
VISIT: Schedule a tour to hear directly from school administrators and receive an overview of the school's mission, curriculum, extra-curricular opportunities, and the admissions process. At least one parent will need to visit our school before beginning an application for admission. Tours are available Monday - Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
APPLY: After prayerful consideration, if Christian Heritage Classical School is the right fit for your family's educational needs, you will be able to complete an Application for Admission.
STUDENT PLACEMENT TESTING: Once your application has been completed and reviewed by the Director of Admissions, you will be contacted to schedule readiness screening or placement testing with one of our academic personnel. All testing will take place at CHCS, and the results will be discussed during the family interview. We would love for your child to spend some time in the classroom, shadowing a current student as well.
FAMILY INTERVIEW: The family interview is a vital part of the admissions process and will be scheduled after all the prerequisite steps have been completed. The interview provides the opportunity for us to get to know each other better, discuss the compatibility of your family's goals with the school's vision, review placement testing results, and answer any questions you may have. Both parents must attend the family interview, and students applying for grades 6th through 12th will be required to complete their own interview as well. Students in grades 4K through 5th are not required to be interviewed and do not need to be in attendance for the family interview.
RECEIVE AN ADMISSIONS DECISION, ENROLL, AND PREPARE: Admissions decisions will be communicated via phone call or email after all prior steps of the admissions process have been completed and reviewed by our admissions committee. Families are usually notified within 2 weeks of the family interview. Following an acceptance offer, you will receive further information on school enrollment and tuition payment.
NEW FAMILY ORIENTATION: At least one parent will need to attend the new family orientation that is held in the fall right before school starts. At this orientation, families will be able to learn about the day-to-day workings of our school, such as lunch ordering, carpool procedures, school software, and more.
