How do you define your Admissions decisions?
Wait Pool: A student is placed in the “wait pool” when he/she qualifies as a mission-match for HCA but there is no space available in the grade at that time. Wait pools are not prioritized wait lists. Should space become available in that grade, all candidates in the wait pool will be reviewed again by the Admissions Committee and the “most qualified” candidate will be selected.
Deny: When a student (and/or parent) is deemed not a mission-match for HCA, a denial letter is mailed to the parent(s) of the applicant. All parent communication is handled by the Admissions department. We are happy to clarify our admissions policies and procedures, however, due to the confidential nature of the admissions process, we are unable to discuss specific qualifications of any applicant, including reasons for denial. In the case of siblings who are not accepted, every effort will be made to contact the families by phone as a courtesy, followed by a letter. The denial decision is for one school year only and students are welcome to re-apply for future grades.
Placing Process on hold: If a student’s report card, transcript, test scores or other information provided on the application (including but not limited to student and family church attendance) show that the applicant will not meet the HCA admissions criteria at this time, the admission process is stopped. Out of respect for the applicant, the Admissions Officer will notify the parents that the process has been placed on hold. Applicants are welcome to reapply when criteria is met.
Priority Consideration: It is the desire of HCA to keep families together by giving priority consideration to qualified siblings, alumni, current HCA preschool students, and children of HCA faculty if space is still available.
