Before submitting an application to Perimeter School, parents should consider the following:

1.  Perimeter School is a ministry of Perimeter Church, which is a distinctively protestant church in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) denomination.  Members of other protestant and non-denominational churches should review our statement of beliefs for compatability before pursuing enrollment.  In addition, non-protestant faiths and other religions should consider schools more consistent with their beliefs.

2.  All parents of applicants must be Perimeter Church members or members (in good standing) of an evangelical, Bible-believing Church.

3.  Age consideration requires that a child be five years old for kindergarten and six years old for first grade by July 1st.

4.  Perimeter School is unable to accommodate international students who require I-20 forms.  Students and at least one parent must be fluent in English.  Please contact the Admissions Department to determine compatability, as parents are required to teach and supervise students in clear use of English.

The first step in the application process for Perimeter School is for parents to attend an "Investigating Perimeter School" (IPS) class. This class is a requirement for both parents (or legal guardians) in order to receive an application. You will learn more about Perimeter School and the application process and may obtain information on how to access an application at that time. These classes will be offered in November, January and February of the current school year. Further details on this class are available through the menu item "RSVP for Investigating Perimeter School class".

All parents of applicants are required to watch the Timeless Foundations of Perimeter School vimeo available on the Admissions home page.

Students will be scheduled for testing after the application has been received. Next, a background check link will be emailed to you from the Admissions Office.  Please complete and submit the information requested. For the last step of this process, the Admissions Committee will schedule an interview with the parents. (Not all who apply will receive an interview. This will be determined by the Admissions Committee.)

Applications for fall admission can be accepted as early as November 1 for the following school year.

Perimeter Church members and Perimeter School siblings have priority in enrollment. The deadline for priority enrollment is January 31.

Parents are to be in agreement with all points contained in the Parents’ Contract, Discipline Policy, Perimeter Church’s Abortion Position, and Doctrinal Standard of the Covenant School.

Formal visits to classrooms will be offered four different dates this year.  If you are interested in scheduling a Classroom Visitation, go to the menu item "Schedule a Classroom Visit" or call the Admissions Office.
