To make the admissions process as smooth as possible, we recommend you take the following steps. If at any point you need help, please contact the Admissions Office.
1. Visit our campus.
FCS has many different tour experiences, each designed to give you and your child a window into our community. Open houses are held throughout most of the year, while Meet & Greets for our Early Education programs are available most Tuesdays. Private tours can also be accommodated upon request. Plan your visit.
2. Submit your application.
Create an account and submit the core application via our website. Each application also requires supplemental documents, listed and linked within the online application. Both the online application and its supplemental documents must be turned in to complete the submission of an application. For internatial students, choose "International" for the grade level; selecting another grade level will result in accessing the incorrect application.
After submitting the application, you can track the progress by opening up "Status" to view the application checklist. Blue checkmarks will appear next to the supplemental forms received and processed.
Early Education applications are accepted year-round. If you wish to enroll your toddler or preschool child, please contact the Early Education Department at 510.744.2260 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm space availability. When ready, please apply online.
3. Attend an administrative interview.
Upon receipt and review of the completed application and required supplemental documents, the campus will contact you to schedule an interview. Early Education interviews are conducted with the family and the campus administrator and include a classroom observation period. Elementary interviews are conducted with the family and campus administrator. Secondary interviews are typically conducted as a one-on-one with the applicant and the campus administrator. Meet our campus administrators.
4. Take a placement test.
When the school contacts you to schedule an interview, you will be informed if placement testing is required. This is highly dependent upon the entering grade and each student's grades and test scores.
5. Receive admission decision.
Welcome to the Warrior family! At the time of acceptance, you will be required to pay the registration fee, technology fee (K-12 only), and first month's tuition in order to enroll your child and have his or her place secured. Please review financial information at Tuition & Fees.

Fremont Christian School will still accept local applications during the middle of the school year, with the exception of high school grades 9-12.
A possible start date for mid-year applicants is considered by the head of school. FCS will usually allow immediate starts for admitted elementary and junior high school students but may determine high school student start dates to only be appropriate during the early weeks of a semester.
Special circumstances may be reviewed (such as a family move), so please submit a written explanation, a copy of the transcript, and a current progress report to the Admissions & Records Office for consideration: email@example.com.
Fremont Christian School does not accept requests for grade level acceleration from new or returning students.
In very rare cases, for returning students only, upon the recommendation of the FCS early education instructors and leadership accompanied by two FCS early education assessments, the Admissions Committee and Head of School may offer the opportunity to accelerate to a continuing FCS student. This is unusual and uncommon. An acceleration offer is made before Kindergarten admissions letters are distributed in March each year.
It is our desire that every student is given the opportunity to reach their potential and work at a level that is appropriately challenging. There are instances when a student’s developmental age is beyond their chronological age, and a parent may seek to advance their child’s grade level in order to address this need. Realizing this, FCS has established criteria to help guide the process of placement for these individuals.
Please contact Admissions & Records to request the consideration criteria: firstname.lastname@example.org
