“We couldn’t imagine our family anywhere else! All the teachers know each of our girls by name and treat them as their own. It is truly a family! GOD’s love and biblical concepts are intertwined throughout all learning and every subject taught. Kingdom education at its best!”

Emily Buersmeyer

*Regarding Immunizations: By order of the Department of Human Services of the State of Oklahoma, any student unable to produce an immunization card or exemption certificate by the end of the first week of school will not be allowed to enter school beyond the time frame until such documents are presented. If you are on a delayed immunization schedule or are exempt from immunizations, please click on the Downloads tab of Sycamore (see Step 3) to complete the Certificate of Immunization Exemptions. You will need to submit the completed form under Immunizations in the Documents tab in your Sycamore Account (create an account in Step 2). Download a schedule of immunization requirements.

STEP 2: Create an account in Sycamore

  • Register for a new Sycamore account.  If you have ever applied to King’s Gate and previously created a Sycamore account, you do not need to create a new account. If you can’t remember how to access your account, please call our office at 405-283-0144.
  • The School ID is 1877. Enter your information. Click Create Account. An email will be sent to you with instructions to activate your new family account. You will be asked to choose your relationship to the student applying to King’s Gate. You may add another adult to your account. Please indicate their relationship to your student.
  • Login to your account.
  • Click “NEW STUDENT” button to start the application.
  • Under “GRADE” make sure you select the GRADE APPLYING FOR THE UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR (NOT current grade).
  • Work through each of the menu/tab items listed at the top for your student. You must click “SAVE” if you are going to exit that screen or click “NEXT” to save and continue to the next item and it will save automatically.

STEP 3: Follow Sycamore instructions to complete online application. 


This tab includes the forms you will need to download and complete. You may need to scan some of your documents.


This tab is where you will

upload required documents. Click on the named item and follow the upload directions for your document.


This tab contains forms that need acknowledgment, including but not limited to the Schedule, Tuition Information, Screening & Assessment Consent, and Photo Release.


This tab is used for families to share information about their student to the Admissions Review team. It also includes a medical release form, which is required before Shadow Days are scheduled (see Step 4).  


At the end, you will have the opportunity to review the application. If any items are in RED you must go back to that section from the menu on top and complete.

Once your student’s application is complete, scroll to the bottom and press “SUBMIT.” A pop-up verifies it was submitted to us. Continue this process for each student in your family that you are enrolling. If you have a new student to add to your family, select “NEW STUDENT” and repeat the process for each student you are adding.

STEP 4: Pay Application Fee

Upon submission of your application, you will be charged a $50 application fee plus a 3.5% convenience fee.

Acceptance Process

1. Admissions Team Review

Our Admissions Team reviews completed applications.

  • Incomplete applications delay the admissions process and may result in no acceptance. 

2. Shadow Day & Assessment

After application review, you will be contacted to schedule 2-3 shadow and assessment days for your student. Students need to bring a lunch and water bottle. Because we are an allergy-sensitive school, lunches must not include nuts or nut products.

3. Assessment Review

Once our Student Support staff have reviewed the assessments they’ll schedule a meeting or phone conference with you to determine if King’s Gate is a good fit for your student and family. An enrollment fee of $350 is due upon acceptance.


Our assessment tests include but are not limited to:

  • Dyslexia Screener
  • STAR Reading
  • STAR Math
  • Developmental Screener
  • Grade Level Critical Benchmark Readiness Assessment
  • WRAT  (Wide Range Academic Test)
  • Writing Sample

Waiting Pool

If there is no room in the class you’re interested in, you may enter our waiting pool. To enter the waiting pool, you must apply for the current school year. If a spot opens, you will be contacted to schedule assessments and shadow days. 


Admissions and Fundraising

Fundraising supports tuition. Tuition covers 80% of costs including, but not limited to salaries and personnel expenses, insurance, cleaning, teaching supplies, consumables, technology, library, Sycamore online portal subscription, administration, printing, postage, telephone, internet, and utilities. How is the remaining 20% funded?

At King’s Gate, we don’t ask parents to help their students sell goods nor do we participate in any catalog fundraising. We have two main fundraisers: the annual winter Gala and the spring ROAR Week & Amazing gRace. 

Your support of these two King’s Gate’s Fundraising efforts contribute another 10% of our income to provide enriched classrooms for hands-on-learning, qualified teachers, solid curriculum, and strong unmatched ratios beyond what can be provided with tuition alone. 

The last 10% of our funding comes from the Growing King’s Gate (GKG) funds. These funds are donated by individuals and businesses who partner with us and are earmarked for underwriting salaries and building.
