Preference and Non-Preference Enrolment

To maintain the special character of Jireh Christian School, priority is given to students whose families demonstrate commitment to the Christian faith.  Unfortunately, if a family is unable to supply a reference from a church pastor/minister/senior leader, we are legally permitted to enrol only 5% of our total roll as non-preference students.

Should the Principal decide to:

  • proceed to interview, notification will be made by phone and followed up by email to schedule an interview.
  • not to proceed to interview, a declined letter will be sent.

Interviews are an important step in the school’s final consideration of your child’s application.  The interview is held by the Principal and also provides the opportunity to meet our staff and to ask any necessary questions.  An interview typically lasts around 20-30 minutes with preferably both parents and the prospective student in attendance.  

Should the decision be made to:

  • accept the enrolment applicaiton, an acceptance letter will be sent.
  • decline the enrolment application, a declined letter will be sent.

NOTE: Standard procedure prevents us from being able to provide any details regarding our school waitlist as this is confidential information.

Starter Pack information and forms are sent one term prior to start date, or as close as possible to that time.

Associated forms completed and returned, with term in advance payments up to date and ….. Welcome to Jireh Christian School!
