Steps to Enrollment at PVCS


Step 1: Get to Know Us

We recommend you begin with the option below that best meets your family’s needs, or take advantage of all of these initial steps in our admissions process to experience all PVCS has to offer. While we believe the activities below are great first steps, you are welcome to begin the online application at any time before, during or after spending time with us.


Step 2: Submit an Application

When you have determined that PVCS could be a good fit for your family, you are ready to apply. The application expresses your interest for your child to become enrolled at PVCS. There is a one-time non-refundable $25 application fee.  If your child is admitted to PVCS, we will apply the application fee towards the registration fee.


Step 3: Submit required documentation

The following items must be submitted before or brought at the time of testing:

  • a copy of the student’s most recent report card
  • a copy of the student’s most recent test scores
  • a copy of the student’s transcripts (10th-12th grade)
  • submission of recommendations from:
    • Grades 1-4: Most recent classroom teacher and Principal or Guidance Counselor (please provide email addresses)
    • Grades 5-12: English Teacher, Math Teacher, and Principal or Guidance Counselor (please provide email addresses)


Upon acceptance to PVCS, the following items must be submitted prior to a student beginning class:

  • Official transcripts from previous school
  • Tennessee immunization certificate with all required immunizations
  • Signed parent agreement form
  • Copy of State-Issued Birth Certificate (mother’s copy NOT acceptable)
  • Permission for Medical Attention
  • Emergency Contact Forms


Step 4: Admission Testing

All students entering Pleasant View Christian School will be tested for academic achievement and placement before admittance into the school. After you have submitted your application, you will be contacted about a testing appointment. There is a $50 non-refundable testing fee. Upon acceptance to PVCS, the testing fee will be applied to the registration fee. When coming for the testing appointment, we ask that students wear modest and appropriate attire.

Note: In some cases, new students in grades 5-12 may be placed on academic probation in order to determine permanent eligibility in the School.


Step 5: Schedule an Interview

All students and parents grades 5-12 must meet with the Administrator or the Secondary Principal before final acceptance is granted. Interviews with the Elementary Supervisor for students K-4 are not required but are strongly encouraged.
