Admissions

Chilliwack Adventist Christian School admits students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at its school, and makes no discrimination on the basis of race, colour, ethnic background, country of origin, or gender in administration of education policies, applications for admission, scholarships, and extracurricular programs. We welcome any young person who desires a character-building education and is willing to support the standards of the school and comply with its regulations.

 

Readiness

It is recommended that students entering kindergarten be 5 years of age prior to September 1 of the school year, and students entering grade one be 6 years of age by the same date. This is to help ensure readiness for learning on the part of the student.  All students entering kindergarten must be 5 years of age as of the 31st of December of the current school year.

 

Home-schooled Students

There are registration fees in place for K-7.  At the time of registration, a general registration fee for each student is due.   Registration for the upcoming school year opens at the beginning of February.  The registration fee is $100 per student prior to the last school day of March and $150 after that date.
