Admissions Policy

Robinson Township Christian School accepts students who have successfully completed the application process and are academically able to function in a normal classroom setting.  The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin.

Admission to kindergarten and 1st grade requires that the student be five or six years of age, respectively, by September 1 of that academic year.  However, exceptional cases will be evaluated on an individual basis.  Parents/Guardians should contact the Principal and request that their child enter kindergarten or 1st grade before he/she meets the age requirement.  The school Health Immunization Regulation known as Article 10 (1983) requires that the immunization status of every child is to be ascertained before admission to school or continued attendance at school.

Parents who wish to begin the process to enroll their child in Robinson Township Christian School should follow these steps in the order given:

  1. Parents must submit a completed, signed application and a $100 application fee.
  2. Students go through a process that might include interviewing, testing, and evaluating past school records.
  3. Parents must meet with members of the Education Committee/Board of Directors for an interview, addressing policy, curriculum, etc.
