We are proud to partner with Christian families who understand and share a commitment to Santa Fe Christian’s Statement of Faith and Mission Statement. The best way to find out about SFC is to experience us in action at one of our Open House events.
Our Admissions Department is committed to making your family’s experience as individualized, relaxed and personal as possible. We admit students who have an active faith in Jesus, are energetic, and will strive for academic success.
Our mission is to partner with Christian parents within a Bible-based community, in order to disciple students to embrace biblical truth, strive for academic excellence, and model Christ-like leadership to influence their homes, churches, and communities for Christ.
Please review the spiritual, academic, behavioral and financial criteria for Santa Fe Christian students and families listed below. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
One parent or guardian must be a professing believer in Jesus Christ, agree with the school’s Statement of Faith, and provide a written Christian testimony. It is preferred that both parents provide written faith testimonies. Students (and at least one parent) must regularly attend and be actively involved in a Christ-centered church as indicated by the Pastor Recommendation form. Parents must sign the Parent Commitment form, which indicates their support and compliance with the philosophy, Statement of Faith, spiritual goals, policies, practices, and objectives of Santa Fe Christian Schools. Upper School students must be professing Christians.
Cumulative and current GPA must be 2.7 (B-) or above in academic courses. Middle School (Grades 6-8) and Upper School (Grades 9-12) transcripts are evaluated separately. For Lower School (Grades K-5), report cards must show grade level or above performance across all subjects.
Entrance test scores must be average or above.
Teacher evaluations and report cards must show that the student is an independent learner and has the ability to be successful in a traditional classroom environment.
Final report cards must show a consistent effort with no drop in academic or behavioral performance.
The school does not accept incoming seniors second semester.
Students and parents must be in good standing with current school.
Teacher evaluations and report card behavioral marks must be favorable.
Students and parents must not have exhibited behavior that is disruptive to the school or community.
Students and parents must exhibit behavior, both in and out of school, that is consistent with SFC’s Christian values.
Students with prior drug, alcohol, or other similar issues must have successfully completed (including being 100% drug and alcohol free) a full semester in a regular school program prior to being admitted to SFC. Specifically, this means that SFC will not accept students directly from residential treatment programs or expulsion from other schools.
Families who previously withdrew from SFC and did not fulfill their tuition contract must clear all financial obligations before an admissions application will be accepted.
All financial obligations to SFC must be kept current.
If the student is transferring from another private school, a note on school letterhead may be required stating that financial obligations have been cleared.
Note: If a student’s report card, transcript, test scores or other information provided on the application (including but not limited to student and family church attendance) show that the applicant will not meet the SFC admissions criteria at this time, the admissions process is stopped. Out of respect for the applicant, an Admissions Officer will notify the parents that the process has been stopped. Applicants are welcome to re-apply when criteria is met.
