Please read through the following information before beginning the online application process.
Grace Academy is a Christian school; therefore, we require that at least one parent be a professing Christian and be actively involved in a local church. During the enrollment process, both parents will be asked to sign a statement that they have read and agree with the Mission Statement, Statement of Faith, and Core Values of Grace Academy.
Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years old by August 31 of the enrollment year.
We encourage all parents to schedule a personal tour before applying or if you are the parent of a rising kindergartner, we invite you to attend our Kindergarten Round Up. In addition, we request that you review our Parent & Student Handbook before applying.
High Country Christian Education Ministries DBA Grace Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school administered programs.
Grace Academy requests a Pastor Recommendation for all new families. This may be a Senior Pastor, Youth Pastor, Executive Pastor or another member of the pastoral staff who can speak to your family's commitment to a local church. On the application, you will be asked to provide the name and email address for your pastor. As a courtesy and to ensure that your application is not held up, please contact your pastor before applying and let then know that they will be contacted via email by Grace Academy. Applications are not considered complete until all recommendations have been received by our Admissions Office.
Teacher Recommendation & School Records
Except for homeschool students and students applying to kindergarten, Grace Academy requests a Teacher Recommendation and Academic Records for all students. On the application, you will be asked to provide a teacher's name and email address. As a courtesy and to ensure that your application is not held up, please contact your child's teacher before applying and let them know that they will be contacted via email by Grace Academy. In addition, parents will need to print and deliver an Academic Records Release Form to your child's current school. Instructions for this form will be included on the application. Applications are not considered complete until all recommendations and school records have been received by our Admissions Office.
While not required to have a Teacher Recommendation, homeschool students applying to Grace Academy will be required on the application to submit a list of curriculum by subject, current year grades (or other assessment), and standardized test scores.
To begin, please click Apply Online. You will be provided instructions on how to create an account and begin a new student application. A non-refundable online fee of $175 is required for each application.
Once your child's application is received, it will be reviewed along with their recommendations and school records. A family interview with our Headmaster will then be scheduled. This interview is a time for you to ask any final questions and for our Headmaster to discuss any items of note on the application. For children entering kindergarten or for children entering first grade who did not attend kindergarten, a school readiness assessment will also be given at this time. After these items are complete and with a recommendation from our Headmaster, an offer letter and enrollment packet will be emailed to you!
