Admission to GCA requires a caring Christian adult (parent or guardian) who is committed to his or her student’s success and willing to partner with us. As such, at least one adult in the student’s life must profess faith in Jesus Christ, regularly attend
church, hold to beliefs consistent with our Statement of Faith, and agree to support and partner with GCA by signing the Statement of Cooperation.

The following is a list of our admissions criteria for students and the method of
measuring each qualification.  Because we have high expectations:

  1. Academically, we require that our students have:

    • Minimum of a 2.0-grade point average GPA overall.

    • Composite achievement score at the 50th percentile and or a “pass” on the Indiana Assessments in language arts and math

    • Students who have an IEP or 504 plan will be evaluated to determine if we believe the services we offer will provide the support needed for the student to be successful at GCA.

  2. Spiritually, we expect our students to:

    • Have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ or in the younger grades, the desire to grow into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ

    • Relate to other students and staff in a manner consistent with scriptures.

  3. Additionally, we think our students should:

    • Have a desire to be at GCA

    • Demonstrate a cooperative spirit: GCA is not intended to be a facility of rehabilitation where parents enroll their children to address emerging patterns of undesirable behavior. As such, students must exhibit a history of acceptable citizenship in previous school experiences

    • Take their educational responsibilities seriously.
