Step 3: Admission Decision
After application submission, the Principal will review the student’s entire application and respond via email with one of three decision types: Acceptance, Wait List, or Non-Acceptance.
Acceptance – These students are qualified to attend Countryside Christian School and show promise of not only benefiting from but also contributing to the school. These students are offered enrollment positions. The school’s offer must be accepted or declined within 2 weeks of the acceptance date.
Wait List – These students are admissible but all available enrollment positions have been filled. Instead of being offered an enrollment position, a wait list position is offered. The wait list does not carry over from year to year.
Non-Acceptance – These students are not offered enrollment at Countryside Christian School.

Enrollment is complete once the enrollment packet is signed and submitted to Countryside Christian School. A $300 Registration Fee will be billed to your FACTS account at the end of the month. The billing office will handle all financial questions and transactions regarding tuition and fee payments from this point forward.
Step 5: Diagnostic Testing and Transcript Review
