Schedule a visit to the Academy. It is always helpful to observe firsthand the environment of Imago Dei Christian Academy. During your visit, speak with the Headmaster concerning the educational philosophy and methodology of a classical and Christ-centered school.
Complete an Application for Admission form and submit it to the IDCA office with a non-refundable application/curriculum fee of $250.00. A separate form and fee must be submitted for each child.
Please bring copies of your student’s standardized tests OR report cards for the previous year. Students will be required to take a math entrance test to determine the appropriate math level.
Both parents and the prospective student will be interviewed by the headmaster and possibly other appropriate faculty members. The Administration may also contact the student’s pastor for a reference. After the interview and reviewing all other required information, the Administration will decide whether or not to admit the student.
Upon acceptance, the family will receive an enrollment packet and the IDCA Parent/Student Handbook. All parents must read the Handbook and sign the form agreeing to uphold all the policies of IDCA.
All new students must have a physical examination prior to admission. In addition, the parents must provide a record of immunization showing the student is current with all the required inoculations. A student may be exempt from immunizations upon submission of a letter of religious objection.
Parents will receive a letter during the summer detailing supplies needed for school as well as a reading list and any required summer projects.
A child must have reached the age of five years by December first of the fall in which he/she would be entering kindergarten.
A child entering first grade must have reached the age of six years by December first of the fall in which he/she would enter IDCA.
If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his school work and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at IDCA, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he/she is applying. However, if through the administration of IDCA’s entrance tests or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that he repeat the previous grade.
The parents enrolling a student will agree to cooperate with all the written policies of IDCA. This is most important in the area of discipline and school work standards, as well as in maintaining active communication with the respective teachers(s) and administration. In addition, the parents must read the IDCA Statement of Faith. All parents will be required to sign a Parental Agreement Form affirming their consent and cooperation on these matters.
