Admission Process

How to Apply

Fill the application form online
Application Fee: $150
(This is done through TADS & covers child placement testing, online submissions, & processing costs). 
 
In order to apply for a scholarship or financial aid, you must complete the application through TADS! 

 

Documents needed for application: 
 
Grades 1 & higher need a teacher's recommendation form before an admission interview can take place. 
 
Documents needed upon enrollment:
 
Children in PreK & K: Immunization & Medical Records Form 
 
Grades 1 & higher:
  • Teacher Recommendation Form (This form must be received before an admission interview)
  • Request for Records Form
  • Immunization & Medical Records form
  • Most recent report card. If your child has been homeschooled, please provide a list of curriculum used in each subject and the number of hours devoted to each subject.
  • Child's most recent standardized test scores (if applicable)
Your child’s official school records are not required as part of the application process, but they will need to be transferred to RHCA upon enrollment. All students for whom the Immunization & Medical Records are not on file may not be permitted to start school until it is received, as stated in Texas state health law.
 

Student observation

After submitting your online application through TADS, you will be contacted by a staff member to schedule an observation for your child. The observation considers your child's developmental level and makes comparisons to the developmental age of other children in his/her age range. It is a tool used to ensure that RHCA will meet your child's developmental and educational needs.

Family interview

After the student observation is completed, you will be contacted to schedule a family interview with the Principal-Head of School.  Before the interview, parents are encouraged to read Shaping Hearts and Minds. The purpose of the parent interview is to ensure that RHCA is capable of delivering the education you desire for your child and that you, as parents, are aware of the expectations you will have in your child's spiritual, mental, and physical lives as members of the Academy. In short, we want to ensure we are all on the same page as we begin this educational endeavor as partners! 

We require that both parents be present for the interview (including divorced families). If this presents a problem, the family can discuss alternative arrangements with the Principal when scheduling the interview.
