The final decision concerning admission of a student to The Freedom School is handled by the Head of School in consultation with the Advisory Board.

As a condition of admission to The Freedom School, parents shall fully abide by the regulations and spirit of the school, cooperating with the teachers and administration in the development of the child(ren).  Each parent shall agree to live up to the policies and parental expectations as outlined by the Family Covenant.  Each parent shall agree to live up to the financial commitments as determined by the Tuition Agreement.  Parents of students are expected to fulfill volunteer service hours.

As a non-public school, The Freedom School reserves the right to deny admission or continued enrollment to any student if the school cannot satisfy the individual needs of the student and or if the student does not comply with the school’s rules and procedures.

Parents will be notified concerning the outcome of the enrollment process when the process below has been completed. Students may be placed on a waiting list, depending on space availability. For all grades, a student’s position on the waiting list depends on the date of application and priority status. Enrollment priority status is given to existing families in good financial standing. In addition, The Freedom School reserves the right to determine and grant priority status on a case-by-case basis, in order to achieve its vision of intentionally welcoming families of: under-represented races, cultures; lower socio-economic status, and refugee/immigrant status. Members of New City Fellowship Church may also receive priority status.
