Do families have to attend Church on the Move to enroll in Lincoln Christian School

No. We do ask that you faithfully attend and participate in scheduled services at Church on the Move or a similar Bible-believing church and agree to support the COTM Statement of Faith as it is applied to instruction throughout the curriculum.

How old does a student need to be to enter the 3-year-old program, Pre-K, kindergarten or 1st grade?
  • 3-Year-Olds: 3 years old on or before August 1st
  • Pre-K: 4 years old on or before September 1st
  • Kindergarten: 5 years old on or before September 1st

What are the requirements for entrance to LCS?
  • Completed application and recommendation forms
  • 3YO playdate
  • Placement testing for Pre-K–12th grade (for those applicants without recent standardized testing scores and all homeschool applicants)
  • Successfully potty trained for 3YO & Pre-K students
  • Consistent family attendance and participation at primarily COTM or a similar Bible-believing church
  • Family interview with the LCS School Board
  • Payment of the enrollment fee upon acceptance

Do you have admissions testing?

Testing scores are just one of the items we evaluate as part of our application process to assist us in determining grade placement. We will test students that do not have recent standardized testing scores available. We also do a playdate for 3-year-olds and screening for Pre-K, kindergarten, and 1st grade applicants to verify that they are developmentally ready to begin a full-day program.

When is your open enrollment period?

Open enrollment for the next school year will begin in early November of the current year for preschool and elementary students (3YO-4th grades) and February 1 for Intermediate Elementary and above students.
