We're filling up!
We anticipate several classes will be full, and we will implement wait-lists for those grades as needed. Current grades with wait lists for fall 2022 are:
Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, & 8th
- We strongly encourage you to fill out an application and turn it in with your child(ren)'s last report card(s) and a registration fee if there is space available in your child(ren)'s grade(s).
- If the grade you are applying for is full, we can add you to the wait-list and contact you if a seat becomes available.
- Once a seat is offered (pending an assessment/interview), it may be secured with payment of the registration fee within one calendar week (7 days).
- If the seat is not secured with a registration fee, it will be offered to the next student on the wait list.
- Registration fees are non-refundable once a seat has been offered following the assessment/interview.
Please note: We do not offer any English as a Second Language classes to English Language Learners. Students must be able to read, write, speak, and understand spoken English in order to excel in our accelerated curriculum. We are not equipped for regular communication in languages other than English. Therefore, all of our communications are sent in English.
Abundant Life Christian School is committed to providing academic excellence in a Christian context.
Our specific objective is to teach and nurture students to become enthusiastic and successful in the learning process, and to achieve their highest potential academically, spiritually, socially and physically.
We seek to determine if there is a match between the mission and philosophy of ALCS and what a family is looking for in a Christian education. We encourage families to take a virtual tour of our facilities. We offer a Virtual Tour, or in-person tour scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

We are slowly beginning to offer Shadow Days again. However, we will continue to monitor the conditions surrounding COVID-19 and will grant shadow days on a case-by-case basis.
When school is in-session, we encourage students to visit the classroom for an entire day or part of a day. We call this a Shadow Day. During this pre-arranged visit, we match your child up with an ALCS student to help them become acquainted with ALCS. Your student will have the opportunity to meet potential classmates & peers, many of our staff, and our staff will get the chance to observe your child in a school environment. A shadow day can be very helpful for you and your child to determine if ALCS is the right fit.
To achieve the best possible grade placement and allow for optimal success within the school, all students participate in an assessment and/or a student interview.
- Students entering 6-12th grades will have an interview with the principal.
- Students entering K-7th grades will take a student assessment to assess what the student already knows in the areas of language arts and mathematics.
- All students entering grades 1-9 will need to provide their most recent Report Card, and students entering grades 10-12 must provide their most recent transcript as part of the admissions process.
Admissions applications and academic records must be received before an interview is scheduled.
An admissions decision will be made based on:
- Admissions Application
- Academic Records (Report Card or Transcript)
- Student Interview (grades 6-12) or Student Assessment (grades K-7)
Final tuition schedules will be issued after enrollment, and families will be invited to set up their financial accounts and a tuition plan in our Family Portal.
Thank you for your interest in partnering with ALCS to train and educate your child!
