Haili Christian School

Serving families since 1978
PRESCHOOL  - GRADE 8

It is the intention of Haili Christian School to provide the best possible instruction and training.  In keeping with this, the following admission policy has been established.


Readiness is a criterion for admission to any grade.  Achievement test scores are used to assess placement into that grade.


Students with special needs are admitted based on the determination of our ability to meet their needs.  There may be a recommendation for further evaluation as deemed necessary during the application process.


Students who are applying from other schools should have a conduct record that is average or above.  Those who have been suspended or expelled from another school, or who have a juvenile record, should provide evidence that a genuine change or behavior and attitude has occurred before admission will be considered.


The school admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration or our educational policies, admission policies, scholarship program, athletic and other school-administered programs.


COMPLETED APPLICATION PACKETS are submitted to HCS and evaluated prior personal interview.  We are currently accepting applications and will be scheduling a personal interview at the time the completed application packet is received.  There may be a need to access a student with an existing learning difference.  At that time, an assessment fee will be charged.


PERSONAL INTERVIEWS are required for all incoming students prior to acceptance.  A personal interview of the student and parents with our administrator or designated staff is a key part of admission to HCS.  Personal interviews typically takes 30 minutes and are scheduled after registration forms and payment has been made.  Notification of student placement decisions will be mailed shortly thereafter.


Final decisions for admission are made upon the completion of all application materials and personal interview.
