Admissions Information

Preferred Timeline

  • CCS admissions utilizes a rolling admission process. However, we recommend submitting applications as early as one year in advance of preferred year of enrollment.
  • Applications are accepted beginning July 1 of the year preceding the year for which application is being made. Testing and interviews begin in January, based on availability.
  • Interviews are scheduled when all required application materials are received.
  • As openings become available, sibling and new family admission begins following the current CCS family re-enrollment process in early February. Letters notifying applicants of admission decisions are sent upon completion of the admission process. While CCS continues to accept applications throughout the year, we recommend submitting all forms as early as possible.
  • If an applicant is qualified to attend CCS but there are no spaces available in his or her grade, the applicant’s name will be placed in a wait pool. Wait pools are not prioritized lists. When and if an opening becomes available, the Admission Committee will convene and select the most appropriate candidate for the opening. Openings occur throughout the spring and summer, and new students are added to the grades where those openings occur.
  • Crossings Christian School gives priority to qualified siblings of current CCS students.
  • A child must be 3 years old before September 1 to start Preschool 3/4 class and 4 years old before September 1 to start Prekindergarten 4/5 class. Students must be 5 years of age before September 1 to begin kindergarten, no exceptions. All early childhood applicants must be fully potty trained and able to care for restroom needs independently.
