The application process at Kanawha Christian School begins with a tour of our campuses. We believe this is truly the best way for you to see exactly what KCS can offer you and your student.

Step 1

All new families are required to take a tour of the campus and speak with our school administrator before receiving an application.  Please call the School Office (641-762-3322) to schedule an appointment.

Step 2

Return the required application documents – which includes: an application, school form, report cards or transcripts from the past two years, together with the Registration Fee – to the School Office, attention Vicki Hillenga (Vice Principal). Upon receipt, your child will be given a place in the active enrollment for the upcoming academic year.

Step 3

All new students (grades 1-12) will be scheduled for placement testing. Pre-K and Kindergartners are assessed on a separate schedule.

Step 4

Each prospective family will be interviewed by the school administrator.

Step 5

A letter of acceptance will be sent to the new families welcoming them into the Kanawha Christian School family!


The enrollment process takes place after the family interview.  At that time, the Registration Fee will be due to officially enroll the student(s). Parents will also be required to choose their payment plan.
