Application Process

The steps below are for new applicants.

Existing families are given the first opportunity to re-enroll and then available spots are offered to new students beginning in February.

Frequently Asked Questions about Admissions (wait pools, class size, etc.)

Step 1

Prayerfully complete an online application. Once we process your application, you can request an electronic character reference for your student and pay the non-refundable application fee ($100 fee for first student, $25 for second and third, $0 for additional siblings.)  If applicable, please also submit IEP and documentation of any diagnoses (Agathos Learning Differences policy.)  We will request records from your current school. You may apply for financial aid after March 1st if desired. 

Step 2

Upon receipt of all requested documentation, the school will contact parents or guardians to schedule an interview with our Head of School.  Any questions about Agathos’ Statement of Faith should be discussed during the interview.  It is preferable for both parents to be present if possible. Schedule-permitting, students will be assessed for grade placement at the time of the parent interview.

We will assess as many applicants as possible for Aug 2022 enrollment on Monday, March 7th this year.

 

Step 3

The admissions team meets weekly to review complete application files and make admissions decisions.  Parents will be notified promptly by email or a phone call.  Mid-term enrollment start dates will generally be set 2-3 days following acceptance.

Current families re-enroll in February.  After that, available seats are offered to new families. 

Step 4

 

Upon acceptance, please submit the following to our office:

  • Copy of birth certificate 
  • Vaccination records or exemption
  • Return signed affirmation that you have read and will uphold The Standard (our Student/Parent Handbook.)
  • Our Registrar will set up a meeting to introduce you to our tuition management and student information systems.

Agathos Classical School has a non-discriminatory policy in accordance with the IRS Code describing 501(c)3 organizations and does not discriminate against applicants, students, or teachers on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin.

Agathos Classical School is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)3 organization. We ask that you prayerfully seek the Lord to provide the funds necessary for your child(ren) to attend Agathos. Because services are received, tuition payments are not tax deductible. The members and staff ask for His provision daily in order to meet Agathos’ financial obligations. We seek donations, which are tax deductible to the full extent of the law, to fund special projects, future plans, and financial aid.

Financial Aid (Tuition Reduction)

 

Agathos is pleased to offer financial aid to make attendance possible where cost would otherwise be an obstacle.  This program is available for students in grades K-12.  (PreK is not eligible because the IRS treats PreK tuition differently than older grades.)  A third-party partner evaluates families’ applications and makes recommendations to the school about tuition reduction. This helps the school remain impartial in awarding assistance and protects financial privacy.  There is a non-refundable application fee ($45) and you may apply as early as March 1st for the following school year.  We typically receive an initial recommendation within a day or two.   Please return here on March 1st for the link to apply for the 2022-23 school year.   

[Note:  This tuition reduction application is separate from the Agathos student application.  If financial aid is a critical decision factor, families may choose to apply for financial aid first.  Then, knowing the result, they can choose whether or not to apply to attend Agathos.]
