Additional Acceptance Requirements 

Kindergarten Entrance Assessment 

Prospective students will interview with our kindergarten team to determine if the student is ready for kindergarten at CMCS. During their interview with our team, students will be asked to demonstrate their fine motor skill abilities by using scissors, holding a pencil, writing their name, tracing, and drawing a picture. Students will also be asked to identify capital and lowercase letters, numbers 0-10, shapes, and colors. After interviewing with our kindergarten team, students will take an early literacy test, using a computer-adaptive assessment format designed for young learners. After the interview, our team will meet to determine if the student is ready for kindergarten at CMCS. 

Personal Faith 

Prospective students must possess a genuine desire to grow in their Christian faith.  Because of our strong commitment to a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, it is expected that a parent and their children have a personal faith in Jesus Christ.

Church Attendance 

To assist in the development of Christian character and a Christian lifestyle, we require that at least one parent is born again and attending a Bible-teaching church on a regular basis (3-4 times per month). In addition, we require that 7th and 8th grade students are born again and regularly attend church. Regular church attendance by both parents and students goes hand-in-hand with church and school goals. The teaching of the Bible is approached with emphasis on the inerrancy of the original Scriptures, the need for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ as personal Savior, and the ministry of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit that enables the Christian to live a godly life.
