4.  Teacher Reference: 

The current teacher listed on the Student Information form will be contacted directly by a CVCS or ILC Admissions Manager to request the teacher complete a Teacher Reference form.  Please make sure the teacher’s email is current so there will not be delays in the acceptance process.

5.  GPA Required for Admission:
At the Secondary Campus, a 2.0 minimum GPA is required for admission.  Students who fall below this minimum may be considered, but only after an
Educational Consultation with Administration has taken place, followed by additional academic testing.
6.  Interview:
The parents/guardians of applicants must participate in a personal interview conducted by a school administrator.  The interview will be scheduled once all required documents are received and all testing is complete.  Students applying for admission to 6th through 12th grade will also be interviewed.

7.  Entrance Exam Policies:

  • Students entering Kindergarten through 6th grade must take an assessment exam.
  • 7th through 12th-grade students may be given an entrance exam in math as part of the application process.  Students will also be asked to complete a writing sample on the day of the interview.
  • Students applying to the Idaho Learning Center (ILC) must undergo more extensive testing.  A separate testing application and fees must be submitted.
