Phoenix Christian strongly encourages all new and current students to apply for scholarships from multiple STOs each year. Tax credit scholarships are awarded only to students who have completed our enrollment process.

What academic criteria is required for admission to Phoenix Christian?

Students grades 7-12 must show a minimum 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale (equivalent to a Phoenix Christian C average) during the student’s last year of school. Standardized test scores may be considered. Students grades 1-6 must show satisfactory academic performance at grade level. Students at all grade levels must show a satisfactory behavior record for the previous school year and no failing grades on the student’s most recent school transcripts. (Note: a one-time failing grade may not exclude a student from admission, but circumstances will be evaluated during the admission process to determine if admission can proceed.)

What attitudinal criteria is required for admission to Phoenix Christian?

Students must 1) demonstrate a strong desire to attend and become part of Phoenix Christian Preparatory School, 2) satisfactorily interview with a school administrator, 3) demonstrate an understanding and commitment to follow school policies and procedures, and 4) understand that all classes will be taught from a Biblical worldview perspective. (Note: A student may be accepted on a probationary status if the above criterion are not satisfied based on the judgement of the administration. Such acceptance will require family and student agreement to the probationary terms and interventions.)

Can I tour the campus first before starting the application process?

Yes, we encourage you to visit our beautiful campus near downtown Phoenix. Join one of our weekly tour groups, experience a virtual flyover of our campus, or check our calendar for upcoming Open House events.

Are there paper applications available?

Applications for all grade levels are available online only. The Admissions office does provide paper copies of required supplemental forms as needed.

Do I need to be a church member in order to enroll at Phoenix Christian?

Phoenix Christian welcomes students of all faith backgrounds, so church membership is not a requirement for admission. However, all of our faculty and staff members are of the Christian faith, and our curriculum and values are based on a Biblical worldview.

Does Phoenix Christian offer need-based or merit-based scholarships to students?

Phoenix Christian does not directly award student scholarships. Instead, our school partners with School Tuition Organizations throughout the state to help families secure tuition funding through tax credit scholarship programs. Read more here or email our Business Office at tuition@phoenixchristian.org for more information.

Does Phoenix Christian allow home school students to enroll in classes?

Yes, we allow home-schooled middle school and high school students to enroll in courses such as Symphonic Band, Anatomy, Spanish, Bible, and more! We also allow home-schooled students to participate on athletics teams on a case-by-case basis. Please email admissions@phoenixchristian.org to learn more.
