Welcome to Geneva School of Boerne’s admission information section. We invite you to watch this brief video to learn whether our school might be a good fit for your family.
Thank you for your interest in Geneva School of Boerne. This section contains important information about the admission process. The goal of Geneva School’s admissions process is to bring together a cohesive student body which is supportive of our school mission and which can grow together spiritually, intellectually, relationally and physically. Due to the magnitude and importance of its task, the Admission Committee’s independence and integrity are guarded. The committee looks for:
- Families who share beliefs and goals similar to those identified in the school’s statement of faith and philosophy of education.
- Families and students who have abilities, talents and time to assist the school in fulfilling its mission.
- Students who are academically compatible with the population of Geneva School students he or she will join.
The Steps to Admission page gives detailed information about the process including online application, testing and interviews.
The Online Application for admission includes forms that must be completed by parents, current teachers, principal/headmaster, as well as the student (if entering sixth grade or above). In addition to completing the necessary forms, students at all grade levels must be tested and students applying to fourth grade and above have a personal interview with a Headmaster. The final step in the process is a personal interview for parents with members of the school’s Admission Committee.
Admissions Director Ellen Yarbrough is available to answer questions you may have. You may contact her by email or by phone at 830.755.6101, ext. 307.
The Geneva School of Boerne prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, nationality, disability, age or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational, admission, tuition assistance, financial aid, or employment policies, or any other programs administered by the school. Employment decisions will be made on the basis of each applicant’s job qualifications, experience, and abilities. Additionally, the school does not discriminate against an employee or applicant who acts to oppose such discrimination or participates in the investigation of a complaint related to a discriminatory employment practice.
The school reserves the right to use religion as a hiring and admissions criterion for all positions, due to the mission and nature of the school as a Christian faith-based institution, as permitted by law.
