I, the parent or legal guardian of the above-identified student (my “Child”), authorize Renton Preparatory Christian School (the “School”) and its agents to administer first aid care and treatment to my Child while at School and any School-related activities or events.
If illness or injury should occur, I authorize the School to obtain emergency treatment (including, but not limited to, medical, dental and hospital care) for my Child. I understand that this authorization is given in advance of any specific diagnosis, treatment, or hospital care being required. I also recognize and understand that the School, to the extent possible, will consult with me concerning the reasons for, and effects of, all such care. Recognizing that it may be difficult to reach me, I authorize the School to permit commencement of treatment and to execute any necessary documents required prior to treatment, when, in the professional judgment of the treating medical provider, such treatment is deemed medically necessary, even if I have not yet been consulted. In authorizing such emergency treatment, I agree to accept the medical professional’s determination that the treatment rendered was medically necessary to protect the life, health, or mental well-being of my Child. I acknowledge and agree that I am responsible for any expenses incurred by my Child in obtaining and receiving such treatment.
I authorize the School to release to, and obtain from, any treating hospital, clinic, licensed medical facility, or attending healthcare provider, my Child’s health information for purposes of diagnosis, treatment, care, or prognosis of any medical problem. I further authorize the School to confer (telephonically, in person, electronically, or otherwise) with such professionals.
I understand and agree that the School consists of a team of faculty members and administrators at the School who collaborate with respect to my Child’s educational experience. As part of this collaborative effort, I understand and agree that the School may share my Child’s health information with other School employees on a “need-to-know” basis, including, without limitation, in cases of health and safety emergencies; when there is concern about my Child’s ability to function academically, emotionally, physically, or mentally within the School environment; or when legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed.
I acknowledge that the School may provide my Child access to Counselors to help facilitate educational, social, and emotional support for my Child at school, and that they are not engaged by me or the School as my Child’s private therapist or psychologist. I understand and agree that the counselors’ discussions with my Child are not protected by any mental health provider confidentiality privilege. To the extent such communications between the Counselors and my Child may be covered by such a confidentiality privilege, I hereby waive that privilege and permit the Counselors to communicate with others as deemed appropriate by the Counselors, including with me and other School employees.
I agree, on my own behalf and that of my Child and our heirs, executors, administrators,
personal representatives, and/or assigns (“Releasors”), to forever release, acquit, discharge,
covenant to hold harmless and covenant not to sue the School, its trustees, employees,
volunteers, representatives, and agents (“Releasees”) from any and all claims, suits, liabilities, and actions, including, but not limited to, any negligence (but not for willful or wanton conduct) of the Releasees, which Releasors may have, now or in the future, which arise directly or
indirectly out of any authorized first aid and emergency treatment of my Child. I further agree,
on behalf of myself and my Child, to indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees against any
and all demands, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, or liabilities, covered by the above
Renton Christian Preparatory School (“Renton Prep” or the “School”) is committed to the free exchange of ideas and freedom of action that should be found at any Christian school. At the same time, it is committed to safeguarding the safety and security of those who visit, work, or study on its campuses and are involved in its activities. The School seeks to balance the security, safety, and other benefits derived from the use of video and audio surveillance with any privacy concerns of the School’s employees, students, families, and guests.
Surveillance equipment is located in each classroom and all common areas. Surveillance equipment is not used where there exists a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as in restrooms, etc.
The areas under surveillance are subject to change, and the School may add further locations or remove locations and/or conduct video surveillance on a temporary basis in other locations as the School feels is necessary in its exclusive discretion and pursuant to applicable law. The equipment records visual and auditory actions 24/7.
All entrances to the School’s campus are posted with signs notifying School community members and other visitors that there are video surveillance cameras actively in use on campus.
Video and audio recordings will be stored in a secure location accessible to authorized personnel only. Information obtained through security cameras will be released by the School only when specifically authorized by the School’s Committee on Audio/Video Surveillance (CVS); however, The Amazing Grace Church Council has the sole and final determination on all matters related to the recordings and transcripts, and the Church Council is under no legal obligation to allow anyone to review recordings, unless so directed by a lawful court order.
The School’s Policy of Video and Audio Equipment Usage located in the School Office provides more detail on the equipment scope, principles, purposes, regulations, and procedures. It is available for viewing upon request. Individuals may also contact the School’s Executive Director or designee for more information or with any questions about the School’s use of surveillance equipment.
Renton Preparatory Christian School (the “School”) does not permit students to travel to or leave campus without their parent/guardian, unless their parent/guardian has given express permission to do so. If you would like the above-named student (the “Student”) to have certain privileges with respect to traveling to or leaving school, please complete and sign this form to designate those privileges you wish the Student to have.
All students leaving campus must check out with the Director of Administrative and Family
Services or designee. All students who leave campus are expected to follow all School rules and policies, and to uphold the standards of the School. Student conduct while off campus may lead to disciplinary action.
I hereby give my full permission for my child (the Student) to (please select all that apply):
The School expects students to comply with any third-party rules or regulations that may apply to the authorized travel methods.
I understand that although the School will ask the Student for the Student’s plans to determine whether the necessary permission has been given, the School will rely on the Student’s answers, and the Student will ultimately be responsible for the Student’s actions once leaving campus, including riding in vehicles and using public transportation, taxis, or similar modes of transportation. By signing this form, I affirm my belief that the Student is sufficiently mature and responsible to truthfully advise the School of the Student’s plans while off campus. By signing below, I acknowledge and agree to the following.
• I am familiar with the mental and physical health of the Student and I believe that the Student is fully capable, having both maturity and self-confidence, to use the method(s) listed above.
• I will instruct the Student on appropriate safety precautions for the chosen method(s) of transportation.
• I will instruct the Student on general safety precautions for traveling independently, including interactions with strangers, use of headphones, protection of valuables, and traveling after dark.
• I will instruct the Student on appropriate behavior while traveling.
• I will comply with any third-party rules or regulations that may apply to the Student’s travel methods. I understand that it is my responsibility, and not the School’s, to ensure that the Student complies with any applicable travel rules and regulations.
In consideration of the Student being permitted to travel to and leave campus in the manner designated by me above, I acknowledge, understand, and agree to the following:
A. RELEASE. I agree, on my own behalf and that of the Student, and our heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and/or assigns (“Releasors”), to forever waive, release, acquit, discharge, and covenant to hold harmless and not sue the School, its trustees, employees, volunteers, representatives, and agents (“School Releasees”), from any and all claims, suits, liabilities, actions, or losses which Releasors may have, now or in the future, which arise directly or indirectly out of the Student traveling to or leaving campus in the manner designated by me above.
B. ASSUMPTION OF RISK. I understand and appreciate the risks and dangers associated with the Student traveling to or leaving campus. I also understand that while the Student is off campus, the Student will often not be supervised by the School or any School personnel. By signing this form, I knowingly and freely assume, on behalf of myself and the Student, all risks, both known and unknown, associated with the Student traveling to or leaving campus in the manner designated by me above.
C. INDEMNIFICATION. I hereby agree, on behalf of myself and the Student, to indemnify the School Releasees from and against any and all demands, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, or liabilities, including attorneys’ fees, brought by any person or entity, arising directly or indirectly from the Student traveling to or leaving campus, including, but not limited to, any injury of any person caused by the Student or damage to or destruction of any property caused by the Student.
These provisions are not intended to, and do not, govern any claims that cannot be released by private agreement. The above provisions are intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Washington. Should any portion of these provisions be held unenforceable or invalid, the remainder shall continue in full legal force and effect. Any dispute arising out of this form between me and the School must be heard exclusively in the state or federal courts located in the State of Washington.

What kind of students are a match for Renton Prep?
Students who most thrive at our schools are motivated to excel and have persistence when presented with challenges. They are willing to try and learn new things. To help learners prepare for future careers where they will not have all the answers, we intentionally build in opportunities to learn flexibility, how to work within constraints and some ambiguity to become problem-solvers. They like learning how to seek additional resources when working with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), fine arts, and developing projects and learning progressions. This is similar to graduate school models in that learning requires more than just memorizing an answer and being able to repeat content in traditional testing. As one of our goals is to prepare young people to transfer what they learn to solve larger challenges in the world as adults, compassion, and empathy become essential to learning through multiple perspectives. Students who thrive at our schools value the process of learning and demonstrating results through finished products, more than they value seeing a percentage for a test score. At the same time, they are young people who follow through with commitments, complete assignments and projects on time. Most importantly, young people who demonstrate an eagerness to be fully engaged in our community and the diversity of our culture and range of experiences have excelled through our programs of study.
When Can I Apply to Enroll at Renton Prep?
We invite applications at any time throughout the year. Students can enroll immediately upon receiving a letter of acceptance. Enrollment includes signing a financial agreement. Waitlists will be available.
Who is Enrollment available for?
Enrollment is for all students, returning and new.
What if I am planning on withdrawing my student for the school year?
If you should decide not to continue your enrollment for the following school year, we have created a user-friendly opt-out form (click here).
The only thing we ask is that this is done by February 9th.
What if my student is enrolled and I withdrawal after February 9th?
We go through a rigorous process to interview, hire, and train faculty and staff to ensure quality and best match for our school. An accurate count of students is needed to determine hiring needs well in advance of the new school year. This process for hiring, vetting, and training begins in December of the previous school year. If you choose to withdraw your student, please note the associated withdrawal fees that will be applied:
How do I add on instrumental music or coding options?
When new courses are added we will release information about add-on options for instrumental music and coding options.
Are students required to wear uniforms?
Yes. All students wear uniforms that are purchased through Land’s End Uniform School Uniforms.
What ages do you accept International Students?
We accept applications for International Students starting at 6th through 10th grade. International students that have a younger sibling can apply, but acceptance will be determined by Renton Prep admissions.
Do you offer boarding, housing, or home-stay options for International Students?
We do not offer boarding, housing, or home-stay options for International Students. Students may live with a legal guardian in the United States.
My student has had and/or currently does have behavior concerns in previous schools and/or at home. Will he/she be accepted?
We cannot accept students with behavior concerns.
Does Renton Prep offer scholarships?
Our school does not give out academic, sports, single parent household or multiple-sibling scholarships. From time to time, we receive external gifts from donors to award financial aid to students based on need. These are limited and based on the availability of external gifts.
How do I apply for Financial Assistance?
We use a third party assessor, SSS (School and Student Services), to evaluate financial need. SSS requires extensive documentation to demonstrate financial need. Applying for Financial Assistance does not guarantee that financial assistance will be awarded. The amount and number of financial aid offers awarded depend on funding from outside donors who choose to support tuition as a gift to the family. It is also based on demonstrated financial need and the family’s commitment to enacting the school’s mission, vision and action. Families receiving financial assistance need to demonstrate that they want to be at the school, that they choose to follow the School’s policies, and represent the School well in the community. Learn more on our financial aid page.
My student struggles academically. Is Renton Prep a good match?
New students enrolling into our schools need to be passing their current grade and/or promoted to the next grade. Our educational curriculum draws on multiple sources and perspectives. It challenges student creatively in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), as well as discussion-based interaction and the arts. Students demonstrate their knowledge in multiple formats. Some students who may not score exceptionally high on traditional academic tests flourish when they can demonstrate their knowledge in other ways. We emphasize that learning effectively requires challenge and sometimes failure, then resilience. Our curriculum is designed to maximize the ability to transfer learning outside of the classroom into the real world. Although some memorization is required, there is an added level of thinking, creating, and analysis to go beyond memorizing content. One of the biggest factors that indicate academic success at our schools is seen in students who consistently complete all assignments and submit assignments on time as well as a motivation to persist through challenges.
My student is accustomed to consistently scoring high on test, will this continue at Renton Prep?
Students who are accustomed to consistently scoring high on tests with little effort or studying may experience the feeling of struggling for the first time in their academic careers when first transferring to our schools. Some students are used to achieving high scores without completing assignments, submitting homework, or submitting content on time. Students who associate learning with high skills in quickly memorizing or ability to take multiple-choice tests without studying are not accustomed to experiencing productive struggle. We emphasize that learning effectively requires challenge and sometimes failure, then resilience.

Do I get a refund if I apply for enrollment but my student is not accepted?
There is substantial office work that goes into scheduling, evaluating, and communicating including in-person visits. In order for your student’s application to be processed and reviewed for admission, the application fee is mandatory and non-refundable.
Does Renton Prep accept students with learning differences?
We accept students with learning differences on a case by case basis. Please contact our office to schedule a conversation with an administrator.
