Admission Information

Parkway’s admissions policy was developed to maintain Christian values and best academic practices necessary to educate students. All prospective students in grades K - 8 are screened and, if applicable, academic records are required prior to acceptance. The admissions committee reserves the right to maintain standards for student conduct, dress, personal appearance, and scholarship. The goal of the committee is to assess students before admission to identify the student’s needs and the ability of PCS to meet them.
