It is the responsibility of the parents to educate their children. Vandalia Christian School provides the means wherewith Christian parents can send their children to obtain the academic, social, spiritual, and physical education they need that the parents cannot do on their own.
Vandalia Christian School is primarily in the ministry of edifying saved individuals for the cause of Christ. Students in elementary school do not have to be born again to be admitted, however they will receive the training and encouragement to accept Christ as Savior. High school students must have accepted Christ as Savior to be admitted. The following are general guidelines for admission:
- At least one of the parents must be a born-again Christian.
- Students must score at or beyond the 50th percentile on their latest standardized achievement test. In the case that a student did not take the SAT, a portion of that test will be administered as an entrance test. Exceptions may be made to this policy for various extenuating circumstances.
- High school students must be born-again Christians.
- A parent should call the school to schedule a personal meeting with one of the administration.
- If the prospective student is entering the high school, he will be interviewed by one of the principals. The student will be asked about his salvation and his desires to attend Vandalia.
- The parent completes an application and signs the Statement of Cooperation.
- All students entering 1st-12th grades will be given an entrance test unless we receive records of that student having taken a standardized test during the previous school year.
- The student is enrolled or placed on a waiting list if the grade is full.
Other Requirements for Admission
- Birth certificate (a copy of the original will suffice)
- Immunization records
- Transcript from former school for those entering 10th grade and above
Discrimination/Statement of Cooperation
- Vandalia Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or national origin in its admissions, privileges, programs and activities generally available to others. This Statement of Nondiscrimination is published yearly in the Greensboro News & Record.
- Parents are required to sign the statement of cooperation at the time of enrollment.
- Parents and high school students are required to read and sign the student guidebook.
