Admissions Process

Thank you for considering Dayspring Christian School for your child. We look forward to hearing from you!

Admissions Process



Student applications can be filled out online. You can find the link to our application in the Admissions tab under “Apply Online”. An application must be filled out for each student.


Interview (Middle School and High School)

Call 417-869-6095 to arrange for an interview. We look for students who have a strong desire to attend the school and pursue God, and for families who are supportive of their child’s education and are willing to partner with the school to continue the spiritual growth of their child at home.


Entrance Testing

We will request records for any students coming from another school. Homeschool students in middle school and high school will be required to provide a transcript of classes already taken. Testing may be required for students with a history of academic struggles, classroom accommodations, or an IEP. The office will reach out to families to schedule testing before class placement is decided.



Following a review of all the required admission procedures, parents will be notified concerning their child’s acceptance.
