Frequently Asked Questions
What are the academic requirements to attend TKCS?
All students are evaluated based upon prior school reports and past standardized test scores. The curriculum at TKCS is a challenging one. These reports need to show that a student is capable of thriving in a rigorous academic environment.
What does “college preparatory” mean?
TKCS is a college preparatory school. This is most evident on the high school level. All classes are in alignment with the requirements of colleges and universities. Our high school offers a rigorous curriculum designed to prepare students for the challenges of higher learning.
My child has struggled academically but I believe that in a better environment he/she can excel. Is it possible for him/her to be accepted?
All students are evaluated on an individual basis. Your child’s reports will be evaluated by our administration and staff. Additional reports and testing may be requested so as to give us a complete profile of your child. Once all of the reports are evaluated, parents are notified as to whether or not we have the appropriate resources to serve your child.
My child has an IEP or a 504 Plan. Is it possible for her/him to be accepted?
TKCS is proud to be one of the only private schools in the area with a program for students with learning differences. Our Timothy Program provides resources to serve students with learning differences. It is critical that all documentation/reports be submitted along with the student’s application. These will be evaluated by our administration and the Timothy Director. Parents will then be notified as to whether or not we have the appropriate resources to serve your child. Please note that while it is our desire to serve all children, this is not always possible.
Does my family have to be Christian to apply to The King’s Christian School?
TKCS requires that, for students applying for grades K-12, one parent or guardian be a born again Christian. (This is not a requirement for preschool.) All families are required to submit a Pastor Recommendation Form that confirms their active involvement in a Christian church.
The King's Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities available to students at the school. The King's Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs.
