We are pleased your student is applying to Grapevine Faith Christian School. We have put together a video to provide an overview of the process. Detailed information is also provided below.
Evaluation of candidates consists of seven parts:
No student will be considered for admission until all steps have been submitted or completed.
All applications and registrations for student enrollment will be accepted at anytime; Open enrollment begins February 1st. Grapevine Faith Christian School will consider those with completed application processes, by the end of February, as first pool applicants.
Registrations will be processed according to the following priority dates:
Once the maximum number of students has been enrolled in a class, a waiting pool will be formed. A student will not be officially considered in the waiting pool until all student application forms and fees are complete, and the family and student interviews have been conducted. If the waiting pool number reaches a level in which it becomes reasonable to establish another section of a grade, the administration may authorize the establishment of a new class within approved budget guidelines. If an opportunity to enroll is turned down, the applicant is placed in the waiting pool with no guarantee of future placement.
Attending Grapevine Faith Christian School offers many exciting educational opportunities; therefore, certain standards and requirements must be maintained. It is not a corrective institution; and, consequently, does not accept students who have been expelled or suspended from other institutions, who have habitually used tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs, who have run away from home, who have been involved in gang activities, who have been arrested, or who have been engaged, married, or divorced.
Admission decisions fall into these categories:
Full admission is reviewed annually for continuing enrollment. A full admission is given to students who: 1) are performing at or above grade level; 2) attend school regularly; and 3) submitted to school policy during the previous school year. New applicants will be expected to have submitted to his/her previous school’s policies for entry to Grapevine Faith Christian School. Full admission status can be changed for academic, attendance, or disciplinary reasons.
Applicants with deficiencies in any of the specified areas may be offered probationary admission for up to nine weeks if the Administration feels the deficiencies can be corrected by the end of that time. The Administration reviews the probationary admissions each grading period. If the necessary corrections have not occurred, the student may be denied further admittance. If the Administration believes it is highly likely the deficiencies will be corrected at the end of a second six weeks, probationary admission can be extended.
The Administration will give denial of admission if the applicant is deficient in one or more of the specified areas and correction during the nine-week period is unlikely. Denial of admission does not prohibit a student from applying again if deficient areas are corrected.
Tuition for the upcoming year is due and payable June 1st, or at the time of enrollment, whichever is later. Additionally, for those families who qualify, Faith offers a competitive financing package to pay tuition over time.
Grapevine Faith Christian School does not discriminate based on race or ethnic origin in the admission of students and hiring of faculty and staff. Grapevine Faith Christian School is a believer school (meaning that at least one parent/guardian is a professing Christian).
