My child's grade level doesn't show up when I try to apply. Should I just apply for a grade that shows up?First, check the Admissions Calendar to see when your age/grade level opens. Once a grade/age level reaches a maximum waitlist, the portal for that grade level will close. There is the possibility that it will reopen following re-enrollment or periodically throughout the year so we recommend that you check back periodically. Re-enrollment for our current students concludes on January 31st. Please DO NOT APPLY FOR THE INCORRECT GRADE LEVEL. Your application will be void and is not transferable to another grade.
It says that I already have an account. How do I log into it?Go to the website and at the top right side of the page you will see a link to "Application Log-In". You may have to create a new password if you don't remember your original log-in.
When I try to finish my application it says "Inactive Submitted" and won't let me log in to the application.That means that that grade level has hit it's maximum waitlist level and is not accepting any additional applications. You have the ability to complete your application in stages however, until you submit it with payment your application spot is not being reserved. We recommend that you check back into the application queue periodically to see if your application status has changed and space has become available.
What do you mean by "priority status"?Priority status is the way that we categorize your child's application. In addition to date submitted, your application is prioritized based on criteria such as sibling status. Please review our Admissions Policy to further acquaint yourself with the procedures.
What are the next steps after submitting my applications?Nothing will happen until our re-enrollment and priority applications conclude on January 31. At that point, we will set up individual TK/K assessments in February based on priority status. Assessments for our 1st - 8th grade openings will not take place until March and we will only assess students for current openings. We will continue to assess students as additional spots become available. There are no assessment needed for any of our preschool classrooms.
What do you cover in entrance assessments? Does my child need to study?Our assessments are a series of benchmark tests that are equivalent to what our current SRVCA students of that grade level are taking. These are measurements to make sure that we have the necessary resources to help every child feel successful in our program. For TK and Kindergarten, our benchmarks include developmental assessment and help us to decide if your child is developmental ready for that grade level or if they may need an additional year of development at a lower level. There is no preparation needed and we will take steps to help your child to feel comfortable and confident during this process.
What if my child doesn't get in to the school, do I get my application fee back?Our admissions team is working to keep you updated and build your child's admission file from your first contact. It is not our desire to take more applications than we are able to place. We do our best to judge availability and it is completely dependant upon applicant qualifications and classroom availability. Frequently, we have late summer withdrawals and encourage our waitlisted applicants with regular admissions updates. Our admission fees are not refundable.
What makes SRVCA different?Our school is comprised of administrators, teachers, and staff that love God and children. We work in partnership with families in the development of their faith and spiritual growth. SRVCA provides challenging academics, competitive sports, innovative technology, and engaging fine arts. This is all done in a loving, safe and Christ-centered environment where we educate the entire child; mind, body and soul. Our vision for all SRVCA students is to LOVE GOD, LEARN FOR LIFE, LEAD LIKE CHRIST.
