The Admissions Process
The admissions process described below is for applicants to the Garden School (Kinder) Grammar School (1st - 6th), Logic School (7th - 9th), and Rhetoric School (10th -12th). We have created a thorough admissions process in an attempt not to be exclusive but to be inclusive of families who strongly desire a classical Christian education. Berean Christian Academy is a school committed to academic excellence and spiritual development. Instilling in students a love of learning and providing an orderly, nurturing atmosphere are our priorities. We desire to create a community where grace and respect override differences and a unity of the Holy Spirit prevails.

5th-12th grade $170 application fee and ISEE assessment fee (non-refundable)

4. Once BCA has received the completed application with all required documentation the admissions
coordinator will contact you to schedule the appropriate assessment testing and shadow day.
2nd-12th grade applicants will be scheduled for an on campus student shadow day.
K-4th grade applicants will complete an on campus assessment.
5th-12th grade applicants must schedule and complete the ISEE assessment. Scores should be submitted directly to BCA using our unique ERB number: 571498. Instructions will be emailed to you once your application is submitted. The ISEE assessment fee is in addition to the application fee and is paid directly to ERB Learning.
5. The final step of the application process is a parent interview. The parent interview is scheduled with the
admissions team after successful completion of the assessment and shadow day. The purpose of this interview
is for discussing the compatibility of the student's and family's goals with the school's methods and
philosophy. This is an integral part of the admissions process.
6. After careful consideration and prayer by our admissions committee, all families will receive notification of
admission status, usually within two weeks of the parent interview.
