Spanish River Christian School’s admissions process is integral to fulfilling our mission to educate the whole child spiritually, socially, and academically under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We strive to prepare students to live a Christian life in a contemporary society as they grow to become strong 21st century global citizens who love the world and desire to see it renewed. To that end we engage in a selection process with the goal of identifying those students who are capable and motivated. Available space does not guarantee placement. SRCS does not have special programs to accommodate students with learning disabilities. In addition, in order to receive consideration, applicants must have:
  • A "B" average or the equivalent for the current academic year (report card/progress report)
  • Successful academic progress in previous school years (report cards)
  • Favorable attendance records
  • No "N" in any work/study habit or conduct grades

If the above conditions have been met, further admission criteria will apply. 

Admissions Consideration for All New Students

  1. Families currently enrolled at SRCS will be given consideration before spaces are opened to the general public. Children with siblings in upper grades at SRCS will be given preference, provided the younger sibling is academically mature and ready for our program.
  2. Preference will be given to families who support and meet all SRCS financial obligations in a timely manner.
  3. Active members of Spanish River Church have priority over non-members who are not currently a part of SRCS.
  4. Enrollment in preschool does not guarantee a continued spot in the preschool and/or kindergarten.
