  • A transcript of grades, preferably for all grade school years, but especially for eighth grade (if students are applying for admission for grades 10,11, or 12, their transcript should include all credits earned to the point of transferring to St. Croix.);
  • A school health record and a physical exam form, which is available from the current school’s principal or current high school.

  • If requested, a letter of recommendation from either your school principal or pastor; and
  • A nonrefundable registration fee.
