Thank you for your interest in South Charlotte Baptist Academy. We look forward to the possibility of serving your family and making a lasting impact in the lives of your children. We are not just a school. We are committed to investing in the lives of our students, having the desire to see them increase in faith, virtue, and knowledge (2 Peter 1:5).
Families who desire to enroll their children in South Charlotte Baptist Academy begin with an Educational Success Consultation (ESC). In that consultation, we will discuss how we might best be able to serve your family in the education of your children. We will discuss curriculum, activities, character building, and discipline, but we would also like to hear from you. We would like to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses as well as his/her past education experiences. The ESC is a chance for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us.
Kindergarten – 8th grade: After the ESC one of our friendly office staff will contact you to set up a Shadow Day. The Shadow Day is a time when we can personally get to know your children, and they can get to know us. Your children will come to school for a few hours in the morning to meet his/her future classmates and get a feel for what it is like at SCBA. During the time in the classroom the teacher will perform an Academic Evaluation. This Evaluation will only take about 15-45 minutes (depending on the age of your child) and will be done while the rest of the class is doing independent work. This Shadow Day is a wonderful opportunity to help you in your decision to enroll your children at SCBA.
After the Shadow Day has been completed and upon approval from the teacher and our Administration, you will be sent an email containing a link to the SCBA application. That email will instruct you on how to complete the one-page application. Once you have submitted your child’s application, one of our Administration will review the application to make sure it was completed correctly and will then send you an Enrollment Packet.
Preschool: After the ESC please call the Academy to schedule a Preschool Classroom Observation for your child. This is a time when your preschoolers will see what it is like to “go to school” and allows the teacher to evaluate your preschooler’s readiness for school. Preschool Classroom Observation is only offered Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
After the Preschool Classroom Observation has been completed and upon approval from the teacher and our Administration, we will send you an email containing a link to the SCBA application. That email will instruct you on how to complete the one-page application. Once you have submitted your child’s application, one of our Administration will review the application to make sure it was completed correctly and will then send you an Enrollment Packet.
The Enrollment Packet is one of the last steps in the enrollment process. You will be sent an email containing a link to the Enrollment Packet. The Enrollment Packets is completed via our online “Parents Web.” The enrollment packet has several pages to complete and three documents to upload. These three documents (notarized Emergency Contact Form, Vaccination Form, and Birth Certificate) can by uploaded during the enrollment process, or they can be turned in at the SCBA Office before the first day of school. If you have any difficulties using Parent’s Web, please contact the SCBA office. A member of our staff will be happy to assist you.
After you pay the registration fee and submit the Enrollment Packet, our Business Manager will send you a Financial Contract. Your Financial Contract will be set up through FACTS, a third-party tuition management company. Please sign the Financial Contract and return it to the SCBA Business Office as soon as possible. Should you have questions or difficulties during this step, please contact our Business Manager via the SCBA office.
Once all the forms have been filled out and approved and your financial contract has been signed and returned, your child’s seat will be held for the next academic school year! We look forward to having the opportunity to serve your family in the coming years!
