Please take a moment and let us assist you in determining whether Geneva is the best school for your family.
1. Getting Started
For most families, an introduction to Geneva begins through conversations with friends or simply driving by our campus. We recommend you schedule your own individual tour to learn more about our community. Time on campus will give you the best glimpse into our school.
2. Submitting an Application
Your admission process begins once we have received a completed Enrollment Application, a signed Statement of Faith (acknowledging you have read it and do not object to your child being taught accordingly), and a signed Parent Commitment. A $200 non-refundable application fee is due at the time of submission.
3. Understanding Geneva’s Approach
We want your family to fully embrace our classical Christian model. In order to make the most of your partnership with Geneva, it is important to understand what we do and why we do it. We recommend all families read at least one book on classical Christian education during their application process. Click here for our Reading List.
4. Records/Reference Forms
Submit the following items to your child’s school. Reference forms and records must be received before your child’s application process is considered complete.
- Administrator Reference Form (Grades 3-12)
- Teacher Reference Form (Grades K5 & 1st Grade or Grades 2-6)
- English Teacher Reference Form (Grades 7-12)
- Math Teacher Reference Form (Grades 7-12)
- Student Questionnaire (Grades 7-12)
- The Registrar will request report cards and test scores (if applicable) from the previous school.
K5 through 6th Grade: Schedule an appointment for an assessment with the Head of Grammar School.
7th through 12th Grade: Schedule an appointment with the Head of Upper School. Shadow days are by appointment only and are at the discretion of the Head of School.
6. The Interview
The parent interview is a vital part of the admissions process. Once all paperwork is complete, we meet with both parents (and students entering 7th-12th Grades). The interview process provides a time for us to get to know one another more personally and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
7. Admission Decision
Prospective students who have completed the admission process will receive an admission decision by written notice. If your child meets our admission requirements but we do not have a space in the grade, your child will be placed on a wait list. The school will select applicants as space becomes available.
