Open Enrollment & Wait List

We begin Open Enrollment (for prospective families not currently enrolled at FCS) on March 1st of each year. At that time, we will open up any available spots to our wait list applicants. Wait list families will then have two weeks (until March 15th), to submit their registration fee and enrollment paperwork. After this time, any remaining spots will be made available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in enrollment, please submit the application form and non-refundable $50.00 application fee. Upon the receipt of these two items, your child will be placed on our wait list.

Admission Policy

First Christian School, a ministry of First Christian Church of Napa, will not discriminate on the basis of the applicant’s race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin. We reserve the right to select students on the basis of academic performance, religious commitment and personal qualifications, including a willingness to cooperate with the staff and administration of First Christian School.

Students seeking admission will be evaluated on the basis of their transcripts, assessment, interview and perceived ability to perform satisfactorily at First Christian School. Students with less than a “C” average in academic subjects may have difficulty attaining a satisfactory level of academic achievement. FCS strives to meet all children’s educational needs. However, we are limited in outside support for children with special learning needs. While we intend to work with each student on an individual basis, a complete partnership between home and school is required for every student’s success.

Prospective students must have a sincere desire to attend First Christian School and be willing to submit to all the standards and regulations of the school. The student must be respectful to his/her peers, staff and faculty. Attendance at First Christian School is a privilege, not a right. No student will be admitted directly following suspension or expulsion from another school. All new students will be subject to a one month probationary period for academic and behavioral evaluation.

Transfer Applicants

We consider transfer applications throughout the school year, on a space-available basis.

Kindergarten Age Requirement

The applicant must be five-years-old on or before September 1st of the current school year.

Campus Visits

All prospective families must complete a formal orientation, to be scheduled through the Admissions Office. This can be done by attending an Admissions Open House and/or a scheduled campus tour.

To schedule a tour, please call 707.253.7226 or email admissions@fccnapa.org.

Shadowing Visits for Students

Shadowing provides great insight into daily life at FCS. Students entering Grades 4-8 are invited to shadow with current FCS students for a half-day or full-day. This step in the admissions process is optional.
