- The applicant’s educational readiness (K), level of academic performance (1-8), and behavior;
- The applicant’s ability to interact successfully in a classroom setting;
- The parents’ level of commitment to and support of the school;
- The applicant’s desire for a Christian-based education.
Re-enrollment & Sibling Application (December)
Beginning in December, current RLS families with students in good standing are invited to re-enroll for the following school year. The online application portal is open to RLS siblings at this time.
*If a student is not meeting basic benchmarks for their grade, re-enrollment may be denied.

Step One – Online ApplicationBeginning in January, the Online Application Portal is open. Families are welcome to begin the application process for the upcoming school year at this time. Admissions will be rolling through December of the current year. A $175 non-refundable family application will be collected at time of submission. Generally, we will not accept applications for the current year once the re-enrollment period begins. (Mid-year transfer applications will typically not be accepted after December 15th.)
