Admissions Process

Application Process

Application for admission to Grace Christian Academy is begun by using the Online Application, found on the GCA website. The Online Application system allows parent/guardians to track their progress with the Admissions Checklist for each student.

The admissions process varies slightly for different grade levels, but the general process is as follows:

  • The Online Application is submitted: A non-refundable application fee of $400 is payable online for each application.
  • Screening: Each prospective student is scheduled for a screening. Students work with GCA Learning Center staff on grade level appropriate work to determine proper classroom placement.
  • Application Review: When the student file is complete with the appropriate recommendation forms and records, the Admissions Review Team will review each application.
  • Family Interview: When the screening results are available, your family will have the opportunity to meet with the division head to establish a relationship, learn more about what to expect at GCA, and ask any additional questions. Middle and Upper School students are required to attend the Family Interview.


You will receive a formal decision letter and financial contract within two weeks of your Family Interview. Included in the packet will be information explaining how to finalize your child's enrollment. The enrollment process will not be finalized until all items are completed and FACTS enrollment has been processed. All new students admitted into the Upper School are automatically placed on a semester’s probation to ensure that the new student is compatible with the mission and academic standards of the Academy.
