Come and see!
One way to start your exploration of PCS is by contacting the Advancement Office. Please call (250) 479-4532 ext 142 (Chris) or ext 143 (Lindsey) or email admissions@PacificChristian.ca.
If you would like a tour prior to applying please let us know. Many families find touring the campuses helpful in their decision making process as it can can give you a feel for PCS by meeting students and teachers, and visiting the classrooms. Tours are available on a flexible basis through the Advancement Office. You can book a tour with this form or email/call us.
When we receive your preliminary application, our Admissions Team will connect with you to make sure we have all of the information and documents that are needed to help make a school decision for you and your child(ren).
As needed, we will connect you with our student services departments and arrange for visits, tours and assessments.
Part of the application process is meeting with the school principal. This “interview” is used to assess the fit between the family and school and to discuss any potential challenges.
This interview is also a great opportunity for you to ask any further questions you might have about the school.
Parents/Guardians are required to attend a “New Parent Information Session.” These sessions are designed to build community among the new to PCS families while reviewing some of the history, philosophy and programs to give a deeper understanding of Christian Education at PCS.
The format of these sessions is changing with our Covid-19 world and will continue to evolve over time. You may be formally accepted prior to a new parent seminar (with the agreement that you will be able to attend a session at some point).
At this point you’re basically accepted and part of the PCS family but, we need a little more information.
- We’ll send you a supplemental application form to complete so we can gather things like emergency contact information and other important details for school life.
- At this stage there is a $200 non-refundable application processing fee per family (if no siblings are currently attending PCS).
- Please note that a one-time $500 capital levy fee is required from all families that are new to PCS, entering grade 2 and up and are not transferring from another “brick and mortar” Christian School. This one-time fee will be allocated to the long-range planning fund and, after acceptance to the school, is payable by Sept 15 of the year of entry.
After you have completed the supplemental application form, watch for an acceptance package arriving in your inbox and mailbox for you and your child(ren)! Welcome to PCS.
If you have any questions regarding either the status of your application, the process, or your potential fit to the PCS community, please contact our admissions team – admissions@PacificChristian.ca
