GRADES/TRANSCRIPT

SCHOOL ORIENTATION

If possible, all parents and students are invited to call the Admissions Office and schedule a tour of the campus. If that is not possible, new families are encouraged to explore our school website at www.redlionca.org.

TESTING

Students are required to take a school entrance/placement test which will be sent to them and must be returned for grading.

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY

Applicants must have an English proficiency that will allow them to function in a classroom where instruction is provided only in English. Students must demonstrate their English proficiency (oral, written, and listening comprehension). Students in grades 7-10 may take one of the following exams, TOEFL iBT, TOEFL Jr., or iTEP SLATE Plus while in their own country and have their official score results sent to the school. An interview with the applicant in person or through Skype is also required. Appointments for the interview will be arranged by the Admissions Office. All first year students are required to take ELL/Learning Support. An additional fee may be required. The students will be evaluated at the end of the year to determine if additional support is required.

HOUSING

It is the student’s responsibility to procure a host family.   All host families must be approved by the Coordinator. The host family must agree to support the school’s mission and at least one adult must be fluent in English. Host families must be willing to provide room and board in a safe environment, transportation, and monitor the student’s behavior and attendance. If finding a host family is a concern or if a single point of contact to help with travel and transition services is desired, we recommend contacting Renascentia Hall International.

ADMISSION & ENROLLMENT

Applicants will be notified as soon as possible after completion of the foregoing steps regarding their acceptance and admission to Red Lion Christian Academy or Tall Oaks Classical School.

  • Copy of student passport

We will not be able to accept international students after October 1 unless they are transferring from a school in the United States.

ATHLETIC AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular school activities. F1 visa students are permitted by the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association to compete in school athletic competition under the following policy.

  • Students are not accepted into Red Lion Christian Academy or Tall Oaks Classical School for athletic reasons and parents and athletes must sign a school addendum attesting to this fact.
  • Students must submit a competed DIAA physical form prior to participation.
  • F1 student participation in athletics is limited to the sub-varsity level during the first year of attendance, and students are not eligible to participate in state tournament competition during that time. Following this time period, students would then become eligible for varsity level and state tournament competition.

According to the enrollment contract, all fees are non-refundable. If a student withdraws from school after the tuition has been paid, parents will be reimbursed a prorated portion of the unused tuition minus the early withdraw fee according to the school’s reimbursement policy. Class placement will not be confirmed until after all fees and admission paperwork are received. In classes where enrollment openings are limited, applicants may be placed in a wait pool. Class placement may occur from the wait pool but is not guaranteed. Please refer to the Tuition and Fee Schedule for a list of current costs.

It should be understood that enrollment is contingent upon maintenance of a satisfactory academic and general record. Official school transcripts from the applicant’s school must be submitted to Red Lion and Tall Oaks prior to admission. Red Lion Christian Academy and Tall Oaks Classical School admits male and female students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and non-athletic activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies or other school-administered programs.
