Enrolment Process

All students are required to complete an application for enrolment form which is available on request from the school office. This form must be completed and returned to the office along with supporting documentation as outlined on the application form.

1. Complete the enrolment application and return it to the school office with the relevant documents as listed on the reverse of the enrolment form.
2. Arrange with the school office for a time to meet with the Principal.
3. Arrange with the school office for a time to meet with the Church Pastor, who is the Proprietor’s Representative to determine your child’s preferential status.
4. You will be notified by the school office of your child’s acceptance/non- acceptance after steps 1-3 have been completed.

At the time of enrolment, parents should advise the school of any family court order which may relate to the child.

Conditions of Enrolment

Palmerston North Adventist Christian School (PNACS) is open to families who wish to provide their children with a quality, Christian education. Enrolments are accepted without regard to religion, ethnic background or nationality, however our integration with the Ministry of Education requires that 90% of our students come from families with a Christian background. 

PNACS operates not only for the members of the Adventist community, but also for students in the broader community who are committed to the values and the ethos of the school.  An enrolment condition of our integration agreement with the Ministry of Education means that preference is given to students attending Adventist churches, followed by students from other Christian denominations.  

All students are expected to live in harmony with our Christian standards and participate in the life and program of the school, including devotional activities and Bible classes.
