How to Apply for the 2017-2018 School Year
The enrollment process for new students consists of two main steps:
- Intent-To-Enroll Form. Anyone who submits an Intent-To-Enroll Form will be offered a seat if one is available, or else placed on the waiting list for that grade. Once parents are offered a seat, they have 48 hours to confirm their interest. Once they confirm, they will have 14 days to fill out the full New Student Enrollment Form.
- New Student Enrollment Form. This a longer form and secures a student's place on the school roster. This form gives the school all the information needed to create a student's file and request information from a student's previous school.
Seven Oaks Classical School continues to accept transfer students on a first-come, first-serve basis. New applicants will be added to the student roll or wait list in the order in which their applications are received.
Where there are multiple sections or classes, placement will be determined by the headmaster and faculty. Parental requests will be taken into consideration, but are not guaranteed satisfaction.
Seven Oaks Classical School is open to any student who resides within the State of Indiana. Seven Oaks Classical School is open to any student who resides within the State of Indiana and the school will admit students of any race, color, and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national and ethnic origin, or any other characteristics protected by law, in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Early Kindergarten Admissions Policy
Under I.C. 20-33-2-7, students residing in Indiana must be at least 5 years of age on or before August 1 in order to enroll in kindergarten in a public school. However, the law also allows schools to establish a policy for permitting exceptions. For more information review the Seven Oaks Early Kindergarten Admissions Policy (pdf).
The only admission preferences at Seven Oaks Classical School are for siblings and the children of faculty and staff.
Enrolled students who indicate their intent to return are guaranteed a seat for the next academic year. So, for example, last year's Re-enrollment Period ran from Monday, January 2, 2017, at 8:00am (EST), to Friday, February 10, 2017, at 5:00pm (EST). Students who indicated their intent to return during the re-enrollment period were guaranteed a seat, provided they met all other eligibility requirements.
Procedures for Withdrawals, Re-Enrollment, and Transfers
Students may withdraw from Seven Oaks Classical School at any time during the school year. A student who withdraws and then re-enrolls will be placed at the bottom of the wait list unless there is an open seat in the student's grade level. Seven Oaks accepts transfer students throughout the school year. In each case, students enrolling must follow the enrollment policy set forth by the school.
A full enrollment policy may be found in the Student Handbook.
