Cross Lanes Christian School welcomes students from around the world. Students from China, Spain, Kosovo, and Nigeria have studied at CLCS. Staff at CLCS view education primarily as a task of edification. In other words, the school exists to aid students who are committed to the Lord as they develop spiritually and academically; therefore, all applicants of CLCS must meet our admissions requirements.

How do I meet CLCS admissions requirements?

  • At least one of the parents or guardians must be saved and must live a life that shows a commitment to Jesus Christ and must express commitment of support to the school.
  • A student twelve or older must profess to be born again and live a life that demonstrates a commitment to the Lord.
  • A student twelve or older must desire to attend CLCS and abide by the spiritual, academic, and behavioral standards of the school.

What do I need to know about tuition for international students?

  • Tuition must be paid for the full year in advance prior to the beginning of classes in August; however, no discount is offered.
  • Students not attending the entire year will be invoiced for the number of days enrolled.
  • Multiple student rates will be figured with the oldest student figured as the first student.
  • After School Care will be invoiced the following month. Use of After School Care incurs an automatic, one-hour minimum charge of $8.00; after the first hour, use is calculated in 1/2-hour increments.
  • Tuition rate does not include Room and Board .
