Christian Unified Admissions

Welcome to Christian Unified Schools of San Diego! You are to be commended for your diligence in researching the best possible educational setting for your child. It is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent.

Our admissions policy embraces discipleship and evangelistic philosophies, both key elements of God’s commission to us as Christians. We desire to attract students who come from a good home, have a cooperative spirit, respect Christian values and authority, and demonstrate diligence and perseverance in their studies. We know that many young people who were not blessed with a strong Christian background have experienced life changes through their exposure to Scripture and a Christ-centered education while attending CUSSD. Our desire is that our school provides a safe environment and is accessible to all with the cultural, ethnic and economic diversities that mirror the world in which we live.

Where to begin?
Applications can be submitted online or manually. Applications for the 2018-19 school year will be available on December 1st. The priority deadline is February 28th. Applications received after this date will be accepted by space availability only.

What happens next?

After you submit your completed application online, you can expect the following:

Within two days:  A letter or email will be sent out confirming receipt of the application and space availability

**Within the first week:  Initial review is completed.  Contact from the Admissions Office or site secretary to schedule testing. (Elementary testing/interview are simultaneous)

Within 1 week of testing:  Admissions Office will schedule JH/HS family interviews

Within 1 week of interview: Admissions Committee decision will be emailed by Admissions Office.

**If an application is turned in before the priority deadline, testing will be postponed until after the deadline has passed. If there is not space available in the grade requested, your child will be placed on a wait pool and you will be notified when your application is pulled for testing. 

If accepted, when will my child be enrolled?

Enrollment contracts are sent by email within a week of the interview, from the Admissions Committee. You will have 14 days to respond and enroll your child online and pay the registration fee of $325. Once you complete the online enrollment and pay the registration fee, your child will be officially enrolled at Christian Unified Schools!

You will receive instructions from the Business Office regarding tuition payment in May, or within 10 business days after being accepted, based on the month in which acceptance occurs. 

If you have applied for a tuition grant, you must receive your acceptance by completing your enrollment online and pay the registration fee before receiving a grant. If the Business Office is unable to create a grant package for you that you can afford, the registration fee will be refunded to you.

Should your enrollment occur after the school year has begun, the Principal will establish a start date for your student(s).

  • Schedule a date for your student to shadow (for 6th-12th grade only) (Prospective students interested in grades 6-12 may shadow a current student during a regular school day and experience life at Christian Unified. Your student is paired with a responsible CUSSD student in the same grade and with similar interests. Shadow Days are set on a Chapel Day, so the students can fully enjoy the Patriot Experience!)
