ADMISSIONS CRITERIA

Welcome Parents,

My name is Mrs. Tristen Wrublewski, I am the Director of Student Services  for FBCS,  grades 1 through 12. My desire is to provide you information on how to apply for our school.  We hope that you find this helpful and if you have any questions please contact me by calling the school office 985-643-3725 or email me at [email protected].

Applications for new students will be accepted as long as we have space in a class.

Students seeking enrollment at FBCS go through a personal interview process and tour with the school administration.  Interview appointments are made once the application and application fee have been submitted online and only if a space is available in the grade they are seeking.

Students must go through the application process and be approved for admission before enrolling in our school.

In order to apply, please click this link:

This will take you online to make a FACTS account and apply for admission to FBCS. The charge for application to FACTS is $22.00 which will be included in the application process and then the Interview Fee (including testing) for FBCS is $50.00 payable to the school at the time of the Interview.

If accepted and ready to enroll, FBCS requires a clear copy of the student’s birth certificate, immunizations & social security card (must be able to read the number), a copy of the current grades. All 9th – 12th grade students must provide a transcript showing classes taken and credits earned, if any.  We take the recommendation of the current school for pass/fail and we take into consideration LEAP results. 

FBCS is dually accredited with ASCI ( Association of Christian Schools International) and Cognia.   We follow Louisiana Standards for curriculum guides in grades 1-12.  FBCS requires kindergarten students to take and pass proficiency tests for entrance into first grade.

We reserve the right to administer a proficiency test to any student seeking enrollment in grades 1 -12.

Students enrolling in FBCS are enrolled on a probationary status.  If the administrator deems the student’s attendance, behavior or academics are detrimental to the school’s overall performance and the issues are not being resolved, the student will be asked to withdraw from FBCS and no refunds of monies paid will be refunded.

A. First Baptist Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, or ethnic origin in the administration of it’s educational admission and other school administered programs.

B. The specific procedure for “Returning” and “New ” student admissions is different. Returning families will sign in to the FACTS portal and make changes there. New families who want to apply may go to https://fbcs-la.client.renweb.com/oa/?memberid=17849 to begin an application.

C. A returning student will not be readmitted if there is an outstanding tuition balance from the previous year.

D. Entrance testing requirements: Administration will review previous school records of all new students, 1-12,  to determine if tests are needed to finalize placement in FBCS.

E. Age requirements: 1st grade students must be 6 years old by October 1st; seniors cannot exceed the age of 19 by October 1st of their senior year unless they have a special education qualifier.

F. Regarding admission of any student who has been expelled from another St. Tammany Parish system, FBCS would follow the same guidelines as the parish system; however, if the family is a member at First Baptist Church, then the student’s admission would be considered by the school committee.

G. In order for a student to be admitted to FBCS, the student and his/her family must be willing to adopt a code of Christian conduct, grounded in the school’s statement of faith, and abide by those parameters for acceptable behavior.
