Enrollment FAQ

Please see the answers to common questions regarding enrollment at Great Hearts Christos.

Q. When and how do I apply?


The online application for enrollment at Great Hearts Christos is open.

Great Hearts Christos is committed to working with families from all backgrounds to provide access to a Christian, classical education to the broadest number of children possible. Admission will ultimately be based on the extent to which our program can help your child succeed. Your communication to us about your child’s strengths and needs will help us better determine if our campus is the right fit for your scholar.

Q. What is the 3-stage process?


Stage 1: Review
We review every application for completeness and fit with a Christos academy:
• Commitment to the Christos Academy – Parent Partnership Agreement
• Evidence of completion of the prior grade (if not entering Kindergarten)
• No suspensions or expulsions from prior school(s)

All family responses, academic history, IEPs, and other relevant information are considered. (If your student is receiving services with a current IEP, a meeting will be scheduled with our special education staff to assess next steps.) We may request additional information during the review process. Families pledge that all responses are accurate and complete. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Stage 2: Offer of Enrollment
When the review process is completed, an offer of enrollment will be sent. If more completed applications have been received than available enrollment seats your child’s application will be placed on a waitlist ordered by the date the application is approved as complete. Additional enrollment offers will be made as seats become available. The enrollment offer will include a request for additional information required for registration.

Stage 3: Registration
You will receive an email with instructions to submit a registration packet. The student’s birth certificate and immunization records will be required in order to submit this packet. For tuition assistance you may need to upload documents to prove financial need.

Christos does not discriminate based on race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, or tuition-reduction programs.

Q. Do I have to complete an application for each of my children?


Yes, you will complete an application per child you wish to enroll in Christos.

Q. How long will I have to accept my offer of enrollment?


Once you have received your offer of enrollment you will have five business days to accept and complete your registration. Completion of your registration includes uploading all documents for review and verification.

Q. Once I submit my application, how soon can I expect to receive an offer of enrollment?


Offers will begin On March 20, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. and continue throughout the spring and summer while seats are available at the academy.

Q. If I have missed accepting the offer of admissions by the 5th business day what happens to my application?


If you have missed accepting the offer of admissions by the deadline date, you will need to reapply for a new application with new submission date and waitlist number for another possible offer. The $75 application fee will not need to be paid again.

Q. I see a waitlist number beside my student’s name in the parent portal. What does this mean?


Once a parent applies to a Christos academy, the application will be in a pending status waiting for approval from the academy. After the approval of the application, it will be given an offer of admission or move to the waitlist for a possible offer if all seats are full for the grade/academy.

Q. How are applications ordered on the waitlist?


Applications are ordered by priority status and then submission date on the waitlist. Each grade and academy have independent waitlists. To read more about the priorities, please go to the Admissions policy and procedures document under the Enrollment Tab on the Christos website.
