The admissions process of Christian Heritage School of Longview is designed to ensure that, not only is a potential family and student a good match for CHS, but that CHS is also a good fit for the family. Our admissions philosophy is not designed to simply fill student seats, but to ensure that school, family and student all agree on basic fundamentals that will create the environment for a successful and positive educational experience for all involved.
The process begins with you, as the prospective family, investigating who we are. We invite you to complete the New Student Inquiry, peruse our website, talk to current families, and research Classical Christian education. Once you feel that CHS is a place you would like to know more about, we invite you to call the Director of Admissions to schedule a tour or register to attend an Admissions Informational Meeting (AIM).
AIMs and tours are scheduled periodically, and more frequently during peak enrollment seasons. This is your first opportunity to view a formal presentation on CHS, meet our administrators, hear from students and tour the school facility. All families begin the admissions process by scheduling a tour or attending an AIM. Please complete the New Student Inquiry form. You will be contacted about scheduling an appointment as well as when the next scheduled Admissions Information Meeting will be taking place.
Before the Family Interview is conducted, parents are encouraged to read Dorothy Sayer's essay The Lost Tools of Learning. Christian Heritage's admissions application is online. Once all portions of your admissions application has been completed and are received by CHS, you will be contacted to schedule testing for your student. After testing, you will be scheduled for a Family Interview with the Headmaster, Principal of School and a member of the Admissions Committee.
If your student is entering the 6th grade or higher, he or she will be expected to attend an interview separate from the parents. The Family Interview is an excellent opportunity for you to have any remaining questions answered, as well as allow the administration the opportunity to get to know you and your family better. After the interview, the Director of Admissions will notify the family with the status of admissions.
Finally, you will receive a letter and instructions to complete the application process if your student is admitted.
