Open Door Christian School is open to any student who has at least one parent or guardian that is a professing Christian and actively participating in an evangelical church as supported by a pastor’s letter of reference. The student must be academically qualified and of good character as confirmed by reference letters included in the admissions packet. The family must be in agreement with the philosophy and discipline of the school. As required by Kansas Law, students entering K4 (Pre-Kindergarten for 4 year olds) and regular Kindergarten (age 5) must be of the required age (4 and 5 respectively) by September 1st of the enrollment year. All students in grades 1-7 are given a placement test when application for admission is made, unless they have been tested in the last 18 months and parents can provide test scores.
Step by Step Process for Admission to Open Door Christian
School Application Form: Complete the Application for Admission and submit to the office with the registration fee.
Tuition Costs and Fees: Yearly tuition costs and fees are available for your review. Please contact the school office if you have any questions.
Admission Testing: ODCS uses the Stanford Achievement Test entrance exam. If a child has taken the SAT within the previous 18 months and you have a copy of the test results, you may bypass this step.
Records Release: Parents must sign the Records Release Form so the applicant’s present school will send all records to ODCS.
Parent Interview: A parent interview with the Administrator must be scheduled with the Administrative Assistant. Parents may schedule a classroom visit or campus tour. At least one parent must attend the parent interview. Completed enrollment papers may be turned in at that time.
Evaluation Criteria: Kindergarten through 7th grade students seeking admission to ODCS are evaluated based on aptitude, achievement tests, previous academic performance, recommendation from their Pastor, and the parent interview.
Non-Discriminatory Policy: Open Door Christian School admits students of any race, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students by the school’s educational policies, admission policies, financial aid program, athletics, and other school-administered programs.
