Required Documentation

1. Completed application form and fee

This form provides the College with basic personal information. You will be required to answer two brief essays about your faith and perspective on classical education.

The $25 application fee may be mailed or paid via Stripe.

The College recommends that students confirm enrollment by National Candidates Reply Date (May 1). The application fee increases to $35 after May 1.

2. Transcripts

All high school transcripts from all schools attended, through completion of junior year.  Upon acceptance, all transcripts from all schools (including other colleges) must be received. The successful completion of senior year in high school is required for admittance. You may upload transcripts here or mail hard copies directly to the College.

3. Test scores for the standardized tests

Students will submit scores for one of the following standardized tests. We currently accept the Classical Learning Test (CLT). The SAT and ACT may be submitted upon request.

3. Pastoral Reference Letter

Pastoral reference letter with a brief survey that addresses spiritual maturity from a pastor, elder, or other non-family member in spiritual oversight. The letter should address such issues as Christian character, church involvement, and potential for success at college.

4. Interview

Once the College receives the other required admissions materials, the Admissions Committee interviews all prospective students who meet the academic criteria. We prefer to interview in person, but out-of-town students may opt for a live, online interview if necessary.
