Interview, Assessment & School Documentation
All prospective students entering grades K-7 will take an assessment prior to acceptance. The assessment for Kindergarten is the Kindergarten Readiness Test (KRT), an assessment for overall readiness for school. All other grades are assessed to determine grade level skills. Once you have submitted a completed application, you may schedule an assessment appointment time. While your child is being assessed, parents meet with the Principal and Pastor for an informal admission conversation. In addition, complete documentation from the applicant's prior school will be requested to finalize the application process.
OLMC School Admissions Process is laid out in the attached document.
Once a student is accepted, parents will then complete an enrollment packet for each child for the 2024-2025 school year. The non-refundable 2024-2025 enrollment fee is TBD. This enrollment fee secures the student's place for the upcoming academic year.
