Admission to SCS

Thank you for your interest in Saskatoon Christian School. 

We are currently accepting applications for the upcoming 2024-2025 school year. Our application process involves completing and submitting the application package documents and attending the family interview with one of our administrators. Once these steps have been successfully completed and your application has been approved, you will be notified that your child(ren) has been placed on our Registration Waitlist. 

Our administrators’ top priority is to ensure each student receives the support they need to succeed academically. Each year, our administrators diligently work to establish optimal class sizes and resource allocation, aiming for the greatest success in each classroom. These decisions are made the week following our current family (student) registration which concludes in May.

In order for your child’s application to be considered for the upcoming school year, your child will need to be successfully placed on our Registration Waitlist. We encourage all new families to start the application process early to ensure their child is on the registration waitlist prior to Wednesday, May 1, 2024.   Please note there is a non-refundable $200 fee per family required to complete your application.

Students are admitted to SCS based on the completion and review of family applications, academic records, student references, and admissions interviews.  

All applications for admission will be considered from: 

  • Families which include at least one parent/guardian who confesses the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, can sign that they agree with the SCS Statement of Faith and Parent Commitment (John 3:3, I Peter 1:23), and who are in alignment with the SCS Vision, Mission and Values.

  • Families who are active participants in a local Bible-believing, Christ-confessing church in which the Bible is believed and taught. (Hebrews 10:25)

  • Parents who understand, and agree with, the purpose of SCS , which is to provide children with a Christ-centred education in which Jesus Christ is acknowledged in every area; where the basis for instruction is the Bible, the Word of God.

  • Parents who are committed to support the work of SCS through prayer, volunteer labour, and financial contributions.

  • Students who are not under suspension/expulsion from another school; if so, evidence of satisfactory behaviour must be demonstrated prior to application to SCS.

Please feel free to contact our Admissions Team should you have any questions about the application process.

Things to Remember

  • A portion of the tuition costs may be receiptable as a donation for tax purposes.

  • Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years of age by January 31 of the school year in which they are seeking enrollment to be admitted to Kindergarten. This is a requirement of the Ministry of Education in Saskatchewan.

  • Saskatoon Christian School does not have an international student study program (students who come to Canada to study in a homestay program).

  • You must be able to provide proof of Saskatchewan residency in order to be fundable by the Ministry of Education.  Click HERE for more information.

  • Parents are responsible to pay any unfunded portion of tuition.

  • If your family is new to Canada or if your child is not a Canadian citizen, please provide the following documents to your application to attend Saskatoon Christian School:

    PROOF OF STUDENT’S AGE: A copy of the student’s birth certificate or passport for proof of student’s identity, citizenship, and age.
    PROOF OF IMMIGRATION STATUS: A copy of one of the following documents will be required: permanent resident, refugee category, parent work permit, or parent study permit.
    PREVIOUS SCHOOL RECORDS: Previous school records (a certified translation in English is required for high school students).

    In order to register at Saskatoon Christian School, the parent/legal guardian or the student must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, refugee claimant, or the parent/legal guardian must hold a valid study or work permit.

  • Students must be able to function in English in our classrooms. Saskatoon Christian School currently does not offer an EAL program.

  • IMPORTANT: Parents/guardians are responsible for following up on the Student Reference forms.  These forms can be faxed or emailed to the school to accelerate the process.  Please submit the remainder of the admission package while waiting for reference forms to be submitted.  Interviews will only be scheduled once all the required forms and documents have been completed and received.

  • To plan for each year, SCS must know in advance every potential or probable need for intensive supports.  Failure to accurately inform SCS about the level of support required may result in our inability to meet students' needs and affect admission eligibility in the future.
