Olive Branch Christian School (OBCS) accepts new students for grades K-6 on a continual basis, limited only to class size.
- Submit a completed Application for Enrollment Form for each incoming student along with the registration fee. A non-refundable $300 registration fee must be submitted with each completed application.
- Applicants for grades K-6 are required to take an entrance exam upon receipt of a completed Application for Enrollment. Entrance exams are administered by OBCS personnel.
- The school will review all documentation and parents/guardians will be notified of acceptance. After notification of acceptance, students will be enrolled or wait-listed based on space, availability, and date. Registration is not guaranteed or complete until you have met with the Financial Administrator to finalize the financial obligation, tuition agreement, and payment schedule.
Registration for current students begins on February 1. Registration for new students begins on March 1.
**Available openings are determined following priority enrollment of current students, siblings, and Olive Branch Community Church members. Openings are limited and you are encouraged to apply by March 1. Students may be admitted during the school year if openings are available. Class placement is pending available space and is not confirmed until an applicant completes the admission process and the school receives all completed registration and tuition agreement forms, along with any applicable registration fees.
**Students must be five (5) years old by September 1 to be considered for Kindergarten enrollment.
A non-refundable registration/book fee of $300 ($225 for returning students that enroll prior to March 1) is due at the time of registration. Without this fee, your child’s place cannot be held. This fee offsets the cost of your child’s textbooks, insurance costs, ACSI fees, and assessment materials. It is not pro-rated during the years, as the costs are incurred whether your child attends for one month or a complete year. All textbooks are property of the school.
This registration fee also covers the initial back-to-school supplies for your student. When supplies run low, parents are responsible for replenishing any supplies needed.
Returning students whose accounts have a past due balance will be allowed to register but will not be allowed to attend school if past dues still exist on the account on the first day of school.
Monthly tuition payments are due the first day of every month. No child will be allowed to attend class unless their tuition is current. Payments received after the 5th of the month are considered past due. You will be charged a late fee of $25 if the payment is received after the 5th of the month. Your child will not be allowed to attend school until payment is made in full and your child’s position will be considered open to those on the waitlist and/or wishing to enroll. There will be a $25 service fee for all returned checks.
We require at least two weeks’ notice if your child will be withdrawn from school. Upon withdrawal – for any reason – at any time after the first day of school, ten percent (10%) of the balance of remaining tuition will be withheld from a refund or be billed upon withdrawal. Those who withdraw for any reason must fill out an Exit Form. Until the Exit Form is completed and returned to the office, a spot is still held for your student and you will be charged until the form is received. Charges will be computed on a daily basis.
