Admissions Criteria

The following criteria will be used when evaluating students who apply to PRCA.  To be considered for enrollment, the student must meet the following standards:
- Student and parents must agree with the mission, statement of faith, school policies and handbook.
- Student must want to attend PRCA and demonstrate an aptitude to meet the school's expectations. 
 
Incoming students in grades 6-12 must take an entrance test which includes reading, vocabulary, and math placement.  Testing is done through a third party, ERB.  The cost is $140 .  You may google ISEE entrance tests if you are interested in a study guide to help prepare for testing.  Please email Mrs. Robinson the test date you prefer and she will forward the link to register.  Students wishing to enroll in Honors English must also take a writing prompt which takes an additional 45 minutes.  Bring two #2 pencils and a book in case you finish the test early.  

Students entering grades K-5 will be given a placement assessment in the spring on an individual basis.

Prior to testing, a family must have completed their on line application.  The enrollment fee is $150 and will be billed within the contract after acceptance.
 
PRCA considers many factors when accepting new students including: church/community involvement, written parent testimony, doctrinal/parent agreement, academic records, prior teacher recommendations, alumni status, sibling enrollment status, PRCA employee status, application completeness, family interview, placement testing, classroom space, student conduct and attendance records. Qualified students that remain in  the wait pool in August may have an opportunity to enroll during the school year should an opening occur. 

Due to increased interest in PRCA, there will be two waves of acceptance : February 28 and April 25. The most qualified, mission appropriate students will fill vacancies first.
