The admissions process at Providence is designed to help us best service your family, our school, and our community. At Providence, we understand that partnering with parents is a privileged responsibility. We strive to build and maintain a community of like-minded staff and families who love God and seek to train up children in the instruction and admonition of our Lord.
Therefore, we first require all prospective families to read the following school documents and direct any questions or concerns to our staff before completing the application.
Second, review our admissions criteria (see below) and complete our Online Application. You will be redirected to RenWeb, our secure online Student Information System where you will manage your families’ application and enrollment documents, tuition payments, and financial aid assistance. Be sure to save your login information as you will continue using this for communication with your child’s teacher(s) and updates on school events, including homework, report cards, parent-teacher conferences, etc.
Providence School of Tifton is open for enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. To receive a discount for referring a friend, your child must have completed the enrollment process.
Third, schedule a family interview with the Head of School. During this time the family is asked to bring their questions for discussion. Likewise, Providence’s expectations of parents and students will be clarified. The student will be assessed in math, reading, and grammar for proper placement in math and reading groups.
Fourth, within 14 days of the family interview, each family will receive an acceptance or reviewal letter. If accepted, you will be asked to complete enrollment with step five. If a review is necessary, details will be given in your letter.
Fifth, complete enrollment through your RenWeb parent portal by submitting any remaining documents required and paying your enrollment deposit. Should you need assistance with either of these, please contact our office.
- Providence requires that at least one legal parent or guardian be a professing Christian, willing and able to clearly articulate their relationship with Jesus Christ, agreeing with every part of our Statement of Faith. Both parents should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and functioning of Providence. Both parents must read the Statement of Faith and accept that it constitutes the doctrinal beliefs of the school and agree to have their children taught in accordance with the Statement of Faith.
- The parents must be committed to cooperating with the policies of the school board. This is most important in the areas of discipline and schoolwork.
- Parents must understand the school’s commitment to parental responsibility for their child’s education. Providence exists to assist parents in the godly training of their children, not to take over responsibility for the education of their children. Providence requires parents to be actively engaged and involved in the education of their children, both at home and at school.
- A child generally must reach the age of four (4) by August 1st of the year in which he enters Jr. Kindergarten and five (5) by August 1st of the year in which he enters Kindergarten. He must also demonstrate academic and developmental readiness for the appropriate grade.
- Generally, a child who has not completed Kindergarten at Providence must reach the age of six (6) years by August 1st of the year in which he enters first grade.
- Children entering subsequent grades will be admitted to a grade based on having successfully completed the previous grade at home or at another school and having performed satisfactorily on an Admissions Assessment Test for the grade to which they are applying.
- New students will be assessed in Reading, Math, and Writing/Grammar to determine their academic readiness for the our Program. Assessment results and prior records will be used to determine the suitability of Providence’s program for the student’s needs. Students who perform substantially below the standards for entrance into a particular grade level may be recommended for placement in a lower grade, or may be placed in lower grade level for “groups” (such as reading or math) for remedial work.
- The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to Providence School of Tifton while the child is in school. He is therefore subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and staff while in school.
- After acceptance to Providence parents will be required to submit birth certificates, immunization records (or waiver form), emergency contact information, and other pertinent documents prior to the first day of school.
Providence School of Tifton makes no distinction concerning an individual’s race, color, or ethnic background because the school acknowledges that all persons are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27), and He makes no such distinctions (Galatians 3:28) in his redemptive plan for mankind.
