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. 

Admission Criteria for all new students

  1. Active members of Spanish River Church have priority over non-members.
  2. Children with siblings in upper grades at SRCS will be given preference, provided the younger sibling is academically mature and ready for our program.
  3. Preference will be given to families who support and meet all SRCS financial obligations in a timely manner.
  4. Length of enrollment at SRCS. Students currently given an additional growth year in the five-day preschool program for four-year-olds will be given preference for kindergarten.
  5. All families currently in the school will be given consideration before any spaces are opened to the general public.
  6. Enrollment in preschool does not secure a continued spot in the preschool and/or kindergarten.
