- Application– All admission applications are submitted online with a $250 non-refundable application fee which includes your testing fee. Kindergarten applicants should be five by August 1 of the academic year. Based on limited openings each year, date of submission can affect opportunity for admission.
- Assessment/Academic Records/Shadow Day
• Students are educationally assessed for success at Carmel Christian. Testing is completed on our campus and will be scheduled through the Admission Office.
• Official copies of the applicants academic records are required. This should include the first and second semesters of 2016-2017.
• Report cards, transcripts, standardized testing, any previous academic testing, birth certificate and current immunization records are required.
• Each applicant grades 1 through 12 will be required to “shadow” with their prospective grade at CCS. This on-campus opportunity is a wonderful way for candidates to experience a day as a Carmel Christian student.
- Parent Interview – A formal interview with both parents will be scheduled by the Admission team with Gwen Bennett, Associate Head of Advancement. Because Carmel serves families who are Christ-followers, the primary purpose of this interview is for the parents to share their personal story of their faith in Jesus. In addition, the results of the admission testing will be shared. The interview lasts approximately 45 minutes and will be scheduled once the applicant’s file is complete.
- Decision – Upon completion of the above process and final evaluation by the admission committee, the family will be notified by email of the admission decision.
