Greenwood Christian Academy offers spiritual training that is aimed at bringing students into a correct relationship with God through Jesus Christ, while maintaining a strong academic program.
As a Christian school, we are committed to the teaching of the Bible and are persuaded that there should be a direct relationship between what Christian students believe and how they behave. Very specific requirements for admission have been established for each student desiring to enroll. The most important of these requirements are summarized below.
The Board of Directors requires at least one parent submit a clearly written personal salvation testimony that provides evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Each prospective student must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for the last year of academic studies.
One or both of the above criteria may be waived by recommendation of the Administration. Each student must demonstrate that he/she has a behavioral history that would be in accordance with the standards and expectations of our school.
SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION
Applications will be processed in the numeric order received. Promptness is important in returning your application material due to the possibility of a waiting list. All applications are reviewed without regard to sex, race and national or ethnic origin. Please pray with us as your family seeks God’s will for the education of your children.
A completed student application includes the following:
- PRE-ENROLLMENT FORM (one for each family)
- NEW FAMILY APPLICATION (one for each family)
- NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT APPLICATION (one per student)
- REGISTRATION FEE – $200.00 per student ($150.00 for K4 and 1/2 day K5)
- COPY OF BIRTH CERTIFICATE
- COPY OF STUDENT’S LAST YEAR’S REPORT CARD
- COPY OF IMMUNIZATION RECORD
Students may be tested to ensure their readiness for the academics at GCA. Generally this testing will be in the areas of math and language arts.
If a student’s application is favorable, an interview with the prospective student(s) and parents will be scheduled. The purpose of the interview is to answer questions and familiarize the student(s) and parents with our school and to make a final determination relative to enrollment.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE/REJECTION
Due to limited enrollment opportunities, numerous applicants and very definite enrollment criteria, we are not able to enroll all students. Therefore, parents/students should not presume that enrollment is automatic.
Parents/guardians will receive written notification as soon as possible of any student’s acceptance/rejection.
