ADMISSION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

A parent shall subscribe to the CCS Statement of Faith and cooperate in developing their child according to these Christian principles: 

“I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the Bible as the only inspired Word of God, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.”

  • The student is capable of academic success at CCS as indicated by school records and standardized tests.

  • The student has been promoted the preceding year or the parents are willing to have him/her repeat the grade if deemed necessary by CCS.

  • The student has a sufficiently positive record of discipline and emotional adjustment to school to ensure adjustment at CCS.

  • The student does not have a physical handicap or learning disability which would severely hinder normal progress at CCS.

  • Each family will be given a student handbook. The signature page must be signed and returned as evidence that parents (and students of grades 7-H.S.) have read the entire book and are in agreement with the standards and policies.

  • Children applying for admission to Preschool (three and four-year-olds) should be three and four years old respectively, on or before September 1. Children applying for admission to Kindergarten should be five years of age on or before September 1.

  • All students need a certified record of birth for the office to make a copy of to keep on file within 14 days of enrollment. Transfer students will have copies of unofficial records within 10 days of requests made in August.

  • The parent is responsible for having students current on all immunizations with physical and dental examination forms being completed for Preschool, grades K5 (or first grade) and fifth grade. Health records (immunization records, physical examination and dental records) are due prior to starting school. A student may begin school without the necessary health records if the child has an appointment with a physician to obtain the records, or the records are being transferred from another school. See the Illinois State Health Record Requirements for more specific information.

  • CCS admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at CCS.

  • CCS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarships and loan programs, athletic programs and other school-administered programs. (Romans 2:11).

  • New students with the exception of Preschool will be tested to determine grade level placement.
