Admissions Process

Our Admissions Process starts with your Application for Preschool or Extended Care.  When we receive your application interest form, we are then prompted to start our admission process which includes contact from the director, a school tour, admissions interview, and the onboarding process.  Please allow at least 2-3 weeks for the admissions process to be completed for your student.  Spots fill quickly, and are not reserved until registration fees are paid on Brightwheel.   

Application

The application is a simple form which helps us collect information about your student.  If applying for preschool and also interested in extended care, fill out a preschool application.  If only interested in extended care, fill out the extended care application.  There are no fees for applications.  

Director Contact

Our office manager will forward your application and information to the Director of the Preschool for their review.  The Director will then reach out to you via phone and email to answer any questions and to set up a school tour.  

School Tour

Once the school tour is scheduled, families and the students are invited to tour with the Director, meet teachers, and check out our awesome location. 

Admissions Interview

Families and students are also invited to participate in an admission interview during or after the school tour to get a better idea of how the student will fit in our programs and to ask any additional questions.  

Onboard

If both parties have agreed to move forward, the onboarding process begins.  This onboarding process includes:

  • Welcome email from the Director with school information

  • Invite to join Brightwheel, our student information system and main communication platform

  • Billing Setup on Brightwheel and Registration fee invoices (due promptly to secure spot)

  • Paperwork email which must be thoroughly completed before student may begin

  • Student starts school

Open House

Our Annual Open House takes place in February.  We invite interested families to attend the open house with their children to learn more about our faith, school, the admissions process, meet teachers, learn about tuition & aid, and much more for the following school year.  We host the open house in our big room at Faith Lutheran Church & Preschool.

Why Faith? 

"Faith is a beautiful church and school with a nice, fenced-in playground and brand new fellowship hall. Faith has highly skilled and caring staff.  If you're looking for a small, Christian school on the West side of Columbus, Indiana, this is the place to be.  While at Faith, my child has made lifelong connections with classmates, church members, teachers,  and extended care staff. We feel like Faith is our extended family and are blessed to have spent her first educational experiences with this program.  We have enjoyed community events including: Pumpkin Patch Field Trip, Firefighter Visit, Thanksgiving Dinner, Valentine's Day Ball, and Trike-a-Thon to name a few.  Faith is a special place to be and we are grateful for our experiences here." 

Chrissy A., Preschool Parent

"We couldn't have asked for more highly skilled, caring teachers! Their love of learning brings lessons to life with hands-on activities, field trips, live science demonstrations, and many other actvities and celebrations."

Molly W., Preschool Parent

"Faith has provided a safe and welcoming environment for my child to learn and grow."

D.M., Extended Care Parent

"Faith has helped our child grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually.  She has met new friends.  She has been exposed to enriching activities to help her learn more pre-k readiness concepts.
