Admissions Policy


All students seeking admission to Grace Academy will be evaluated on the basis of their enrollment application and entrance assessment to ensure we are able to meet their academic needs. Enrollment for new families will begin after enrollment opens for current families. After enrollment opens for new families, applications will be primarily processed in the order in which they are received, along with the application fee.

In preschool, we introduce several important foundational concepts of learning and character. Beginning in kindergarten, the classroom instruction transitions to focusing more on Christian discipleship where we partner with Christian parents to ensure consistency of life and learning. Therefore, beginning in kindergarten, we require that at least one parent be a Christian and submit a completed Pastor’s Recommendation form.

All new students enrolling in kindergarten or higher will be required to have an entrance evaluation to determine their grade-readiness level. Returning students do not need an entrance evaluation unless otherwise determined by the school director. Additionally, we may request copies of previous school records. Additionally, new elementary students will be enrolled on a probationary period until the end of the 1st quarter. If students are unable to meet the behavioral and grade-level expectations, or if parents are unable to meet the expectations of the Covenant Learning Model (CLM), the Director will meet with the parents to determine the appropriate course of action.

Covenant Learning Model (CLM) – Grades K and higher

Grace Academy’s elementary program is called the Covenant Learning Model (CLM) for grades K-8.  Parent and teachers covenant together to play active roles in the educational process to ensure consistency of life and learning at school, at home, and at church, in order to effectively create life-long disciples of Jesus Christ who possess the faith, wisdom, and character necessary to fulfill God’s will for their lives.

In this model, students attend school three days per week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays) to receive direct instruction from the classroom teachers. On Fridays and Mondays, a parent or guardian oversees the guided instructions sent home from the classroom teacher. Families participating in CLM (grade 1-7) will be required to have a family interview to determine their compatibility with the Covenant Learning Model (CLM).
