Admissions Overview:

Northwest Christian Education exists to assist parents as they provide Christian education for their children.  The primary basis for admission to the program is a parental commitment to accept their biblical mandate to train their children.  Since the School Board of SMCA believes that education is a scriptural mandate, admission is open only to children whose parents are committed to Christian values. In addition, the following policy considerations will be applied when evaluating each family for admission of their child(ren):

  • At least one parent must subscribe to the Statement of Faith.

  • Parents must view Christian education as a religious conviction.

  • At least one parent must be present at seminars, orientations, and parent conferences provided for Christian school families (except in the case of F-1 international students).


Enrollment is open to students of families from churches providing the facility for a SMCA campus on a first come first served basis. Students from all other families will be enrolled as space permits. All school policies apply equally to all SMCA families.

  1. Each student must be in good standing with the previous school attended (i.e., passing marks academically and a good behavior record).  A student with poor academic performance or behavior problems will be placed on probation for one quarter.  If results are improved, the student will be taken off of probation and be officially enrolled at Spring Mountain Christian Academy.

  2. Secondary students, grades 6-12, must verbally and in written form commit to their willingness to attend SMCA, and must openly attest to their willingness to abide by all the procedures and rules of SMCA.

  3. Students with learning disabilities will be evaluated carefully, with consideration of the type of disability, severity of the disability and the capacity of SMCA faculty to accommodate that disability.

  4. SMCA's mission involves working with the parents in the Christian education of students, and so we expect parents to be partners in nurturing their children, and to agree to the following statement. "As a parent I agree to support the school with my prayers and with a positive attitude.  Complaints or negative comments will be shared ONLY with the teacher, administrator, or person involved and NOT with my child or other people, following the Matthew 18 principle."

  5. During the registration period, an appointment for a new family interview and student entrance test will be made through the local school administration. This is a meeting where the goals, program, and commitment of the school will be presented.

  6. After the interview and testing, the admission committee will determine whether or not the student is accepted for enrollment.

  7. Within a week after the initial interview, parents will be notified by the local campus secretary regarding the principal's decision to accept or deny the student's enrollment.

If a student is accepted, a fully completed and signed application form must be returned to the local school office with all registration fees paid in full, by the date established on the acceptance notification.
