GRADES K3-K4 (PRESCHOOL)
Entering 3 year olds MUST be 3 years old and entering 4 year olds MUST be 4 years old by September 1 of the year they are enrolling. An original and current Certificate of Immunization Compliance Form 121 and a copy of the child's birth certificate are required for admission. A successful parent/guardian interview with the preschool director as well as a separate meeting with the business manager. The Preschool Director will discuss the basic policies and procedures with any interested parents. All children must be potty trained!
Students applying for grades K-6 will be selected through a process that may include a review of previous school performance, teacher recommendations, admissions testing if deemed necessary, and a successful parent/guardian and student interview with the elementary school principal as well as a separate meeting with the business manager. If previous school records do not provide a clear assessment of the student’s ability to be successful at Presbyterian Christian, the school may require additional testing. A nine-week probationary period that will include parent-teacher conference(s), academic evaluations, disciplinary review, and appropriate recommendations may be required.
Students from the local area (Hattiesburg/Pine Belt) may be considered for admission to grades 7-12 only at the beginning of each semester (within 5 school days of the start of school in August or January), if space is available. Students who move into the area may be admitted to grades 7-12 at the time of their relocation, as space is available.

Once we receive the above forms, we will review your application and the principal will call and set up a testing time. Tests will be scheduled and administered individually, and usually last around 1 hour. Tests are based on current PCS curriculum at the grade level of your student. This will not be standardized.
After testing, you will be contacted and scheduled for an interview with your student(s) before proceeding with enrollment. Applications are not considered complete until ALL forms have been received.
Admission to and continued enrollment in Presbyterian Christian School is at the sole discretion of the school.
