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 attend an information session 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 them 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 & Academic 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 current 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. Grace Academy will also contact your child's current school to request a copy of his or her academic records. 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.
