Admissions Process

The admissions process at Stillwater Christian School is centered upon getting to know students individually and assisting them in fully understanding our school’s mission and vision. The match between student and school is of primary importance.  A variety of factors are reviewed during the admissions process, including student and parent responses to our Stillwater application, academic records from current schools, and performance on standardized and individual assessments.

Enrolling a K-12th Grade Student?

K-12 Admissions Steps:

1 - Tour

The best way to truly experience the unique educational environment at Stillwater Christian is to visit and see it for yourself. Schedule a meeting with our director of admissions to tour our beautiful
campus, meet members of our faculty
and administration, and learn about the many opportunities that are available
to SCS students.

2 - Apply

The next step is to apply! Having reached the decision that you would like your child to join our Stillwater Christian community, please submit a Stillwater application.
Our director of admissions is here to guide you through this process. Please don’t hesitate to contact her with questions along the way.

 

3 - Submit Grade Reports and Standardized Test Results

In addition to completing the Stillwater application, we ask parents to submit the most recent grade reports and standardized testing results, if possible.

4 - Assessments

Once the above steps have been completed, our admissions director will contact you to schedule academic assessments. Conducted at SCS, these will help us understand your child's academic strengths and needs.

5 - Educational Consultation (for 6th-12th only)

Students entering grades 6-12 will have the opportunity to visit with our principal to discuss the results of our assessments, scheduling for the upcoming school year, and other important items pertaining to our secondary school.

6 - Meet Our Head of School

We ask all incoming SCS parents, as well as 6-12 grade students, to attend a meeting with Jeremy Marsh, our head of school. During this meeting, you will receive pertinent information about Stillwater Christian’s mission and vision, and you
will have the opportunity to ask questions about our school. This meeting must take place prior to a student’s first day of
school with us.

Enrolling a Preschool Student?

What Makes Stillwater’s Preschool Unique?

  • Montessori Philosophy and Structure. Children of multiple ages come together and share a learning environment while still engaging in educational activities that are suited to their individual development and needs.

  • Hands-On Learning. We love hands-on learning! Young children learn most effectively when they have the opportunity to explore their environment and experience a variety of materials to stimulate the five senses.

  • Christian Character. We seek to love and nurture our youngest students while reinforcing biblical principles. The development of Christian character is emphasized, stressing integrity and self-discipline.
