At RCS, discipleship is our top priority. Admissions, academics, extracurricular activities, sports, and everything else are not ends in themselves, but rather means to disciple students in the truth of God and the grace of the gospel. We accomplish this discipleship primarily in a partnership with parents and their local church. 

We want to ensure that this mission of discipleship stays at the center of everything we do, including our partnership with homeschool families. We are living in times in which we as a school must become more clear on where we stand on truth and expectations for all who involved at RCS. 

The process below is similar to the Admissions Process for full time students at RCS. Our aim is to be abundantly clear about who we are, where we stand on truth, and what we expect of those you desire to partner with us. Homeschool students and RCS full time students wear the same uniform on the court or field. They are equal representatives of our ministry and our Lord. For that reason, we have established this Homeschool Partnership Application Process. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the school office. 

HP Application Process:

Step 1 – Application

  • Step 2 – Interviews and Checkpoint

  • Family Interview  (contact office to schedule after all aspects of Step 1 are finished)
  • Student Interview  (grades 7-12)
  • Complete Admission Checkpoint (sent to family after interviews)
  • Students may participate in Open Gyms and scheduled practices once Step 2 is complete, but may not play in games or participate in any other activities until Step 4 is complete.

  • Step 3 – Handbook and Signed Documents

  • Receive and review Student Handbook –
    • Most pertinent sections for homeschool families includes:
      • Philosophy and Purpose of RCS – (currently p. 4-7)
      • Student Life – (currently p. 14-27)
      • Operations – (currently p. 37-45)
    • Each year’s edition of the Student Handbook comes our early July. 
  • Sign Parental Agreement(sent out with handbook to be signed each year)
  • Sign Student Covenant(grades 7-12 – sent out with handbook to be signed each year) 

Step 4 – Final Acceptance

  • Parental Agreements and Student Covenants must be signed each year.
  • Just as with full time students, families will undergo a New Department Checkpoint when the student moves from 8th to 9th grade unless they have just started partnering with us within the last 2 years.
