Admissions Policy

Our Admissions Policy

Fort Myers Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, financial aid, or any other school administered programs. We do ask that at least one member of the family is a born again believer as stated in John 3:3. Here is a link to Our Statement of Faith.

The enrollment process begins with applying online through FACTS.  When all parts of the completed application, along with the non-refundable registration and application fees have been submitted, the process of admission begins.

The personal interview with the parents and prospective middle school student allows the administration to discuss the spiritual, behavioral and educational goals of the family to determine how well they match the opportunities existing at FMCS.  Admissions decisions are made based on the family‘s spiritual commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, (According to admissions policies, AT LEAST ONE PARENT OR STUDENT MUST HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR PERSONAL SAVIOR) the student’s ability to profit from the instruction given here, good record of behavior at previous school (student should have maintained a good behavioral record), and the absence of any limiting emotional or social deficiencies.  Students entering FMCS for the first time will need to submit a copy of their previous transcript and standardized test scores for acceptance. The transcript and scores will be reviewed, and the administration may desire to have a placement test administered. Students entering kindergarten and those without current standardized tests scores will have an entrance test administered to them.  This test will help us determine whether or not we can accept the student for the following school year.

Since FMCS is not adequately prepared to meet the needs of every student who applies, our admissions procedures are designed to help both the school and the parents make the best possible decision for the education of their child.  When the process is complete, a letter of acceptance or denial will be sent.

Admission cut-off dates:

  • A child must be 4 years old by September 1st to enter K4.
  • A child must be 5 years old by September 1st to enter K5.
