Admissions Process & Policy

Admissions Process & Policy


Our Shepherd Lutheran School will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year on January 26, 2018. New students may apply for the 2018-2019 school year by completing the Application for Enrollment form and turning it in to the school office along with the Application fee of $250.

Parents are then asked to gather information to complete the student files with copies of applicable paperwork such as birth certificate, immunization record, report card, and previous standardized testing report.  All new families should meet with the principal as well. Kindergarten age children who do not attend Our Shepherd Lutheran Preschool must be screened by our Kindergarten teacher to determine Kindergarten readiness. Screenings are scheduled by appointment with the school office.  Kindergarten screening fee is $50 and is then applied to the $250 Application fee.

Testing dates for prospective students for Kindergarten through 8th grade are scheduled at Our Shepherd Lutheran School year round by appointment.  Once the testing process is completed, the file will be reviewed and an enrollment letter will be mailed.
