Tri-State Christian School Admission Process

Tri-State Christian School partners with parents to educate students from a biblical worldview for excellence in lifelong learning and Christ-like character. Because TSCS regards its mission as supporting the Christian home and church through a biblical approach to education, one custodial parent (preferably both) must  be a born-again believer who is in agreement with the TSCS Statement of Faith and is actively living out their faith in a Bible-believing church. A parent is not required to be a member of a church but at least be active in attendance. A Pastoral Reference form is required for enrollment.

Students enrolling in Kindergarten must generally be five years of age on or before August 15. Pre-Kindergarten students must be four years of age on or before September 1.
