Welcome to Greenville Classical Academy's Online Application. Thank you for your interest in our school!
When to Apply
Greenville Classical Academy encourages families to begin the application process as soon as possible. Families may apply as early as mid-November for the next school year. The application must be completed and supplemental application forms downloaded, completed and returned to the school. A non-refundable fee of $50 for 7th-12th grade UMS and $150 for Lower School and 5-day 7th grade or 8th grade must be submitted with each application. (After July 15, a $100 late application fee will be added.)
How to Apply
The Admissions area of our website is designed to make the application process as simple as possible using our Online Application.
- Because GCA partners with Christian parents to assist them in the Biblical upbringing and education of their children, both parents should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and functioning of Greenville Classical Academy. Both parents must read the Statement of Faith and accept that it constitutes the doctrinal beliefs of the school and agree to have their children taught in accordance with the Statement of Faith. At least one parent must verbally articulate a saving relationship with Jesus Christ during the family interview and personally affirm GCA's statement of faith.
- Each family is required to have their pastor (or similar church figure) submit a completed Pastoral Reference Form.
- The parents must be willing to cooperate with the policies of the school board. This is most important in the areas of discipline and schoolwork.
- Parents must understand the school’s commitment to parental responsibility for their child’s education. Greenville Classical Academy exists to assist parents in the task of educating their children, not to take over responsibility for the education of their children. Greenville Classical Academy requires parents to be very actively engaged and involved in the education of their children.
- Generally, a child should reach the age of four (4) for K4 and the age of five (5) for K5 by September 1 of the year in which he enrolls at Greenville Classical Academy.
- Generally, a child who has not completed Kindergarten at Greenville Classical Academy should reach the age of six (6) by September 1 of the year in which he enrolls in first grade at Greenville Classical Academy.
- Children entering subsequent grades will be admitted to a grade based on having successfully completed the previous grade at home or at another school and having performed satisfactorily on an admissions assessment test for the grade to which they are applying.
- Academic portfolios and/or copies of standardized achievement test scores and recent report cards for each student who is applying must be submitted with the Application for Admission. As part of the application process and evaluation, Greenville Classical Academy will also examine the student’s records and transcripts from previous schools attended.
- Applicants for K5 will be tested using the YCAT. Applicants for 1st - 6th grades will be assessed in Reading, Writing, Math, and Grammar to determine their academic readiness for the program at Greenville Classical Academy. Applicants for 7th-12th gardes will be accessed for math and English grammar and composition. Assessment results and prior records will be used to determine the suitability of the Greenville Classical program for the student’s needs. Students who perform below the standards for entrance into a particular grade level may be recommended for placement in a lower grade.
- The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to Greenville Classical Academy while the child is in school. (S)he is therefore subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and staff while in school.
