Welcome Prospective Parents
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Los Gatos Christian School. Each day at our school is an exciting new opportunity to enrich the minds of our students, and we hope your child will join us.
Los Gatos Christian School welcomes students regardless of race, gender, national and ethnic origin, and is non-discriminatory in all our policies. We accept children between the ages of 3 and 14 years.
Applications for the current school year are accepted throughout the year to fill available openings. Please contact to us prior to applying to ensure there is space available in your desired grade level.
Please contact us regarding availability for your child, and to schedule your personal tour of our school. We will be happy to answer your questions and provide additional information about our educational programs.
We know it’s not easy to select the right school for your child. Our admission process makes it easier!
1. Schedule a guided tour of our school
Observe one of our classrooms for 30 minutes to see how our instructors interact with our students. You’ll notice how well the children interact and self-direct their activities, sharing with others and learning at their own pace.
2. Submitting an online application is simple
Create an account, set up a username and password, and fill in the application. Watch for a confirmation email when the process is complete.
3. Schedule an admissions test
Our Registrar will contact families of Jr. Kindergarten – 8th Grade applicants who will test one-on-one with our testing facilitator. (There is no test for Preschool 3s applicants.) Admissions tests are administered during the month of March for following year applicants. Mid-year applicants will be tested immediately.
Testing for Jr. Kindergarten and Kindergarten applicants is developmental in nature, while 1st – 8th-grade applicants are administered an academic test. These tests help us determine the applicant’s ability to be successful in their grade level, as well as math and language arts placement. Please bring your child’s most recent report card and standardized testing results at the time of testing.
You will be notified of your admissions status within 1 week (mid-year applicants will be processed immediately.) Once accepted, you have 2 weeks to submit financial forms and a non-refundable enrollment fee to secure your child’s placement.
Full Disclosure & Parental Partnership
It is important to Los Gatos Christian School that parents represent their students in a full and accurate manner. Los Gatos Christian School considers the education of a child to be a partnership with the parents, and we cannot fully participate in this partnership unless the process is built on a foundation of integrity and honesty. Failure to disclose information may result in the dismissal of the student from Los Gatos Christian School, even after admission has been granted. Students with IEPs or other special modifications are encouraged to prequalify prior to applying.
