Horizon Christian School has been blessed with growing enrollment for the past several years. However, to maximize individualized learning opportunities, each grade has a predetermined capacity. We often have a large number of prospective students, and the number of applicants can exceed the number of seats available in a specific grade level. Therefore, qualified applicants who we do not have immediate seating for will be placed into our Wait Pool. As spaces become available, we will refer to our Wait Pool and select students based on a variety of admissions criteria.
Please know that seats may become available anytime throughout the spring, summer, or school year. Families can remain in the Wait Pool through the school year; however, applications do not roll over from one year to the next and so you must apply each January for the next school year.
We are praying for you and your family as you find the best school to partner with in your child’s education!
Frequently asked Questions REGARDING OUR WAIT POOL:
To be considered for admission, and to be added to our Wait Pool, applications must be submitted in their entirety. This includes submitting all required attachable documentation with the application, and for 6th - 12th grade students, the required references must be received. A student may be placed in the Wait Pool prior to, or after an interview/assessment meeting has taken place, depending on when the classroom capacity is reached. You will receive communication if your student has been placed in a Wait Pool. Students will remain in the Wait Pool until a spot becomes available, at which point you will be contacted to proceed to the next step. (A $35 non-refundable application fee is charged when your application is submitted.)
No. Applicants may find themselves at various stages of the admissions process when we need to start utilizing Wait Pools. Therefore, students may be place in a Wait Pool with or without an interview having already taken place. However, we do require a fully submitted application with all required documentation, as mentioned above.
Horizon Christian School does not rank applicants in the Wait Pool, however we do prioritize siblings of currently enrolled students and students of current employees. As space becomes available, all Wait Pool candidates are individually reconsidered using the same process as applied to the initial review or interview, if a student got that far in the admissions process. The Enrollment Director and school administrators will discuss applicants and make decisions.
Initial Wait Pool openings, if any, are determined once a grade level is full. In past years, additional openings have become available when there are changes in a student’s plans to attend Horizon Christian or when families move from the area. It is possible for a Wait Pool candidate to be invited for admission as late as August or even September. If your child is selected from the Wait Pool, you will receive communication from the Admission Office to move forward in the admissions process.
The $35 Application Fee is non-refundable and is used to cover the cost of the online application provider utilized by Horizon Christian School.
Normally our Enrollment Fee is non-refundable. However, if you get to the step of submitting an enrollment packet, and in the meantime, we have reached capacity in that grade level, you will not be charged the enrollment fee.
If class capacity is reached, and you have not yet reenrolled, your student will be added to our Wait Pool when your reenrollment is completed, including setting up your FACTS payment plan for the next school year. You will receive communication if your student has been placed in a Wait Pool. Students will remain in the Wait Pool until a spot becomes available, at which point you will be contacted to proceed to the next step. A reenrollment fee will only be charged if your student is removed from the Wait Pool and is able to enroll.
