Thank you for your interest in Anchor Lutheran! Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make in the life of your child. Your child will be profoundly influenced by the teachers and program to whom you entrust him or her. Selecting a school that will reinforce your values about education, life in this world, and life eternal is absolutely vital. We’re so glad you are exploring how Anchor Lutheran could successfully partner with you.
1. Complete and Submit Enrollment Paperwork.
All required forms are here available for download. The K-8 Enrollment Application and Financial Agreement are forms to complete on your computer and then print out, with only signatures and initials still needed. Families applying for enrollment in Grades 1-8 are also asked to submit a copy of their child(ren)’s most recent Report Card and Standardized Testing. For Child Care (Preschool) and K-6 Child Watch Applications only, a $60 Registration Fee must be submitted with the completed paperwork. A $350 Registration Fee is to be submitted with K-8 School Applications (refundable ONLY if we are unable to accept enrollment). Completed forms can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
2. Meet with Principal (K-8) or Program Director (Child Care / Child Watch).
After your completed paperwork and Registration Fee has been received, we will contact you to schedule an interview with the Principal (if applying for K-8 enrollment) of the Program Director (if applying for the Child Care or Child Watch Programs). This interview is a time of sharing, with parents expressing what they are seeking for their child and the Principal or Director relating what our school offers and seeks to accomplish for children and their families. The interview typically lasts 20-30 minutes. If at the end of this meeting both the school and parent(s) still feel confident that Anchor is the right place for the child, Child Care and Child Watch applicants move directly to Step 4, while K-8 enrollment applicants move on to Step 3 below.
3. Enrollment Determination is Shared.
The school office will contact you as soon as possible concerning an enrollment decision, typically the first business day after all admission requirements have been met. A decision may be delayed if special student needs are being considered.
4. (K-8 only) Student Meets with Principal and Completes Entrance Exam.
Each applying student meets with the Principal for a “getting to know you” interview and an entrance placement testing. The purpose of the testing is to gain additional insight into the current achievement level of each child, which is shared with both the classroom teachers and the parents. This allows us to identify academic areas of potential difficulty for the prospective student so that proper support and assistance may be provided, while areas of exceptional strength may be challenged to encourage even further growth.
