Acceptance Criteria

Our application process is not a first come, first served model. We consider all students that have completed their admissions process in acceptance rounds. Our first round of acceptance decisions will be in December.

Our longstanding and thorough admissions process allows us to explore if SWCHS is a good fit for an applicant and if the applicant is a good fit for SWCHS.  Our criteria for consideration of acceptance are but are not limited to:

Faith/Spiritual Commitment | The student and at least one parent:

          • Profess faith in Jesus Christ
          • Participate regularly in Christian community, desiring to grow in their faith
          • Are in agreement with and align with our statement of faith, core beliefs, and values: see on our website What We Believe


Academics | The Student:

          • Demonstrates he or she values learning
          • Possesses a willingness to engage and participate academically
          • Academic history supports his or her ability to succeed in our learning environment


Community | The Student:

          • Demonstrates a desire to be a cooperative member of our community who is positive, engaged, and contributes to the student body
          • Agrees to our expectations about student behavior and agrees to our pledge of integrity


Decision Process:

• Acceptances will begin at the end of December
• Acceptances will be communicated by email
• Mid-year transfer students will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis
• Acceptance will be extended based on determined fit, not on a first-come, first-served basis
