Legacy Christian School is committed to a Biblical philosophy of education which integrates Christian principles and Scriptural truths in all areas of student life. Our commitment is to provide a school atmosphere that is loving, nurturing, and conducive to discipling students and maximizing their learning experiences. We love and value children as gifts from God, and we believe it is important for every student to experience growth and success in every area of their lives while in school. Every step of the application and admissions process has been carefully designed to assist us in providing this type of environment for your children.
General Admission Standards:
Admission is selective and based upon the following standards:
- A family’s commitment to upholding Biblical truth within their lives and the lives of their children.
- Student’s academic standing is satisfactory based on report cards, standardized tests, and any other relevant information.
- Students with diagnosed special needs will be considered on a case by case basis.
Kindergarten Admission Standards:
We offer both a partial-day and full-day kindergarten. Please see the Full-Day vs Partial-Day Kindergarten document included in this packet for more information. The age guideline we adhere to is that a child’s 5th birthday must fall on or before September 1 of the year they are entering kindergarten. However, we also believe the developmental readiness of a prospective kindergartner may be more relevant than their chronological age. In some cases, a child that meets the age requirements may need some additional preparation for kindergarten readiness. Therefore, to better understand and identify a child’s developmental readiness and assist parents with effectively preparing their child for kindergarten, a brief readiness assessment may be given to some incoming kindergartners. This will take place in a comfortable and low-key environment and someone from the school office will contact you to schedule this prior to finalizing admissions.
In order to comply with State of California regulations regarding school and public health regulations, all students attending Legacy Christian School must be immunized according to the California Department of Public Health chart. Personal or religious exemptions for immunizations are no longer accepted. However, medical exemptions are still allowed in some circumstances. For additional information and assistance, you can call the school office or visit www.shotsforschool.org. If admitted to Legacy Christian School, the school office will ask for copies of your child’s immunization records or medical exemption during the registration process to verify that all requirements have been met.
Legacy Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, financial aid program, athletic and other school-administered programs. We do reserve the right to select students on the basis of commitment to Biblical truth, academic performance, lifestyle choices, and personal qualifications including willingness to cooperate with the school administration and abide by its policies.

This is the final step in the application process and will not be granted until all materials requested above are received and signed. If no space is available in your child’s class, students will be entered in a student candidate pool for consideration when spaces become available.
The interview is with the School Administrative Team and will last about 30 minutes. All prospective students are welcome to accompany you but are not necessarily required to attend. We may ask prospective students entering grade 5 or above to attend the interview. You may want to make child-care arrangements for any other children, if possible, so that you can fully benefit from our time together. However, if you are unable to do so, feel free to bring them with you.

Once the interview has been completed, you will be contacted within three days to communicate if your child has been accepted. If accepted, the school will email you within the next two weeks with the additional information needed to register your student. The registration fees are per student and must be paid at this time unless an alternate payment arrangement has been approved by the school. Once the registration process has been completed and the fees paid, your student will be placed on the official class list and is guaranteed placement. The registration fees are as follows:
- Regular Registration Fee: $250 per student and non-refundable
- Early Registration Fee: $200 per student and non-refundable if registered by April 17, 2020
Legacy Christian School is its own 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and financially independent from Crossroads Church. While tuition does not fully cover all of our expenses, our commitment is for tuition to be as affordable as possible. It is the continued financial gifts of those who believe in and support our vision that make this possible. If you desire to contribute financially to Legacy Christian School above and beyond your tuition, all contribution checks should be made out to Legacy Christian School and are tax deductible as provided by the IRS tax code. The responsibility for financing an education at Legacy Christian School at Crossroads Church rests with the family enrolling the student. We have established a scholarship fund for those needing assistance with tuition, which is funded solely by contributions. If you have a need for tuition assistance, please contact the school office for an application.
