The Geneva School believes that classical Christian education is a vital work of the church. While The Geneva School is committed to its independence from a local church, we believe that our education should not only be available to the academically elite and therefore The Geneva School does not require an entrance exam. While it is the school's desire to educate all Christians who apply, our resources for meeting the needs of children with moderate to severe learning disabilities are limited.
- Student acceptance will be based upon completion of required documents including a pastoral and teacher references and a family interview. Grade placement will be based on the student’s academic ability.
- A child must have reached the age of five years by September 1 of the year in which he would be entering kindergarten and pass a Kindergarten entrance screening administered by Chancy Bruce.
- If a child is transferring to The Geneva School and has successfully completed the previous school year and his school work and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at The Geneva School, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if, through the administration of placement tests or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may become necessary that he repeat the previous grade.
- Each student must be prepared to submit to the authority of the school as it is delegated first from Jesus Christ, then through the parents, and ultimately to the faculty.
- The parents of students in The Geneva School should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of the school and at least one parent must be a confessing Christian and agree to the Geneva’s Statement of Faith. This understanding includes a willingness and support to have their child exposed to the clear teaching of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program.
- Parents should have a clear understanding of our unique classical educational approach and should carefully read Geneva’s informational materials.
- Parents are required to cooperate with all the written policies of The Geneva School. This is especially important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration
