Since Grace Christian Academy exists to educate the children of the Christian community, at least one parent of the student applicant must confess Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior.
Since we believe the local church to be the vehicle through which God works, we strongly encourage believing parents of students to be united in membership with a local church that preaches Christ as the only way of salvation for lost humanity.
The parents enrolling a student must be willing to cooperate with all the written policies of the Academy. This is most important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teacher(s) and administration. Parents must also read through the Academy’s Statement of Faith in order to gain an understanding of the basic doctrines that are taught at GCA.
A child must have reached the age of five years by December 1 of the fall in which he/she would be entering kindergarten.
A child entering first grade must have reached the age of six years by December 1 of the fall in which he/she would enter GCA.
Every applicant is required to take a diagnostic Entrance Exam. Parents must supply the Academy with any previous standardized testing results, report cards and any other relevant material at the time of application. If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his school work and behavior compare favorably to the comparable grade at GCA, the child will likely be placed in the grade for which he/she is applying.
However, if through the evaluation of GCA’s Diagnostic Entrance Tests or other evidence, it is determined that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, it may be necessary that he/she repeat the previous grade.
