Admissions Policy

Grace Christian Academy is an non-denominational Christian school. We seek to enroll students whose parents desire to partner with the school to ensure a Christian education.  Both students and parents should be informed of the school’s Christian emphasis and agree to support this vital part of the educational journey. Prospective families must first complete an online application and submit all of the required documentation.  The student application will be evaluated for admission based on previous grade reports, attendance records, teacher / principal / pastor recommendations, parent cooperation with school, academic testing reports, and a student/parent visit and interview. The admissions process is designed to identify families and students for whom GCA provides a strong academic and spiritual fit and GCA will enroll students based on a variety of criteria.  The school may give enrollment priority to siblings of currently enrolled students who were admitted to the school in a previous year and to the children of Grace Christian Academy staff.

During each period of enrollment, Grace Christian Academy will accept applications for new students. GCA offers priority enrollment for presently enrolled students, provided the re-enrollment forms and registration fees are submitted by the early registration deadline.  Open space is determined by the number of current students planning to return. If an applicant meets the admission requirements for enrollment but is applying for enrollment in a grade level that is full, the applicant will be placed in a waiting pool for his/her grade level.  When vacancies do occur, the school administrator will select from students in the waiting pool based on a variety of criteria.

The enrollment application process will begin in January and will last at least thirty (30) consecutive calendar days. Grace Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
