ADMISSIONS & TUITION
Grace Christian School welcomes students and families from all backgrounds that meet the academic entrance requirements, have the potential to complete our standard and enhanced curriculum, and wish to be engaged in a critical thinking educational platform taught in a manner consistent with a Biblical worldview.
APPLICATION & ACCEPTANCE TIMEFRAME
Due to the limited availability of space at each grade level, we encourage all applicants to apply as early as possible. Student intake to GCS occurs in September at the beginning of each school year; students in Kindergarten through Grade 9 may be admitted, upon approval, for a start date at the midpoint of the school year (usually early February).
Students must apply to attend Grace Christian School. The admissions process is designed to ensure that:
- Grace Christian School can meet the needs of the applicant and help him/her achieve his/her goals; and
- The student is suited to the learning and social environment of Grace Christian School
Grace Christian School has an online general admissions application process for all applicants. We no longer have a paper form available and all applicants are required to complete the online application process. Please review the steps below before proceeding with your application.
