Steps to Enrollment

 

STEP ONE


Attend an International Community School Informational Meeting
These meetings are held throughout the school year and are a mandatory first step toward involvement in any International Community School program. In an effort to honor everyone in attendance, children are not allowed to attend.

 

Informational Meeting Dates

 

 

STEP TWO


Complete Application & Pay Registration Fees

Pick up a New Family Enrollment Packet from the office, complete and return with applicable registration fees.

All registration fees are non-refundable nor transferrable.

 

 

STEP THREE


Family Interview

A representative from the school office will call to set up a time for your 45-minute on-campus family interview.  We’d like to meet your entire family and have you meet us!

 

 

STEP FOUR

Complete Academic Evaluation and/or Gesell Testing

Following the family interview, an academic evaluation will be necessary for class placement in the 1st through 9th grades. All students entering kindergarten will take the Gesell Test to determine developmental readiness. Fees are due at time of testing.

 

 

STEP FIVE


Meet with Our High School Administrator

If your student is in grades 9-12, the Registrar will call to schedule a meeting with the High School Administrator to write a four-year graduation plan following the family interview. This meeting does not guarantee acceptance.

 

 

STEP SIX

 

Start Tuition Payments

If it is on or after June 1st, it’s time to begin paying tuition for the coming school year. Call the Financial Administrator or consult the financial information form for your payment amounts and options.

 

 

STEP SEVEN


Submit Medical Forms

Make sure your student’s immunizations are up-to-date and all necessary medical forms are turned in to the school office prior to your student starting school. We will need the original immunization form, the original yellow physical form (current exam within 12 months), and a copy of the birth certificate.

 

 

STEP EIGHT


Order Textbooks and Uniforms

Get a class textbook list and uniform information from the office to make your purchases. Delaying this step may mean your child will not have the appropriate books and uniforms for the first day of classes. Please allow at least four weeks for curriculum orders.

 

 

STEP NINE


Attend Parent/Student/New Family Orientation
New Family Orientation is a vital, mandatory step in enrolling at ICS. Parent and Student Orientations occur the week following New Family Orientation and are a time of training and preparation for the new school year. Refer to your ICS calendar for orientation dates.

 

 

STEP TEN


Take Required Parenting Course
Parents have to complete the required Christian parenting course (PK-5th) or parenting book with questions (6th-12th) by the end of the first semester of enrollment.  Contact our Family Education Department for details.
