ACS Admission

Hello!  Agathos accepts applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, but January is the most common month to apply for August enrollment.  (As of July 2023, we have space available in most grades for the 2023-24 school year.)  You may apply up to 2 years early, if desired.   If Agathos is a great fit with your family, we encourage you to apply and be accepted to a wait pool, from which openings are filled.   Even though a class may be full, some families move or change plans, creating an opportunity for a student in the wait pool.

Existing families have the first opportunity to re-enroll in February.  Acceptance of candidates from new families begins in mid March.

To visit or request more information, please submit an Inquiry Form.  Upon submission, you will receive an email with a link to schedule a tour.  Thank you!

Application Process

The steps below are for new applicants.

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

Step 1

Prayerfully complete an online application. Once we process your application (within a day, if school is in session), you can log in again and request a character reference for your student by entering the name and email address of someone unrelated who has observed your child in a group.  If applicable, please also submit documentation of any diagnoses or IEP (Agathos Learning Differences policy.)  We will request records from your current school.  Financial Aid applications will be accepted beginning in March for the following school year.  

Step 2

Upon receipt of all requested documentation, the school will contact parents 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.


Step 3

The admissions team meets weekly to review completed application files and make admission 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 school asks for God’s daily provision to meet its 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.

2023-24 Tuition and Payment Plans

Payment may be made through Blackbaud Tuition Management in full at the beginning of the year, split into two equal payments at the start of each semester, or spread into ten equal monthly payments.  There are no charges or discounts for any of these options.  We do not give automatic discounts to families with multiple students, but offer tuition assistance to all families who qualify.  Enrolling multiple students increases a family’s likelihood of qualifying for aid.  Scroll to the bottom of this page to learn more.

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 (Blackbaud Financial Aid Management) evaluates families’ financial aid applications and makes recommendations to Agathos about tuition reduction. This helps the school remain impartial in awarding assistance and protects families’ financial privacy.  There is a non-refundable application fee ($35.)

Apply Here: | School ID: 14882 – Agathos Classical School  | Deadline: 4/15/2023 (The school will consider late applications, but priority is given to those who apply by the deadline.)

Note:  This financial aid application ($35/family) is separate from the Agathos student application ($100/student.)  If financial aid is a critical decision factor, families may choose to apply for financial aid first.  An award decision is usually made 7-10 days after all documentation has been submitted along with an application; decisions are communicated via email.
