Students in Grades 1 through 9 (seven years old and up) are required to submit report cards and a GA approved standardized test taken within the last year. In addition, students in Grades 1 through 9 will be given a math placement test to be administered by GA. If students do not have a current standardized test, GA can recommend an administrator.

5.  Attend a Family Interview

The final step in the Admissions Process is an interview with a GA board member. You will be contacted by the school to schedule this interview. Both parents must accompany the applicant.

After the Family Interview and review of the above items, you will be notified of the board’s decision regarding acceptance of your child.

Parents must pay a non-refundable deposit of 10% of total annual tuition within seven (7) days of notification of acceptance.

Waiting List

Enrollment priority is assigned in the order in which completed applications are received.  Your Enrollment Deposit holds your child’s place in this priority listing.  In the event that an opening is not available for your child by August 1, GA will refund this fee in full upon request.
