Briarwood Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, or national and ethnic origin. Due to high demand for placement and high re-enrollment rates at Briarwood Christian School, students may be placed on a waiting list. Please contact the admissions office for information on the waiting list.
To be eligible for enrollment, students must score on grade level and complete the application process. The School does not provide enrollment to students whose special educational or physical needs cannot be met by our existing programs, services, or staff.
Kindergarten-Sixth Grade Enrollment
Briarwood offers Priority Enrollment for presently enrolled students, provided the privilege is exercised within the Priority Re-enrollment period (by January 31).
Limited Priority Enrollment for qualified, new students in kindergarten through sixth grade, is offered, as space is available, to students who are brothers and sisters of currently enrolled students, children of Briarwood graduates, and students of Briarwood Church members. The application must be received by January 31 of the year in which enrollment is desired. Qualified students in Grades 1 - 6 are those who have passed the admissions test, met all of the requirements for enrollment and the parents have attended a Parent Orientation Meeting. No testing is required for kindergarten applicants.
Enrollment priorities can be honored for qualified students only as space is available.
Non-Priority Enrollment for qualified, new students in kindergarten through sixth grade, is offered, as space is available and applications are accepted year round. Qualified students 1-6 grades are those who have passed the admissions test, met all of the requirements for enrollment and the parents have attended a Parent Orientation Meeting. No testing is required for kindergarten applicants.
