Application Process

The Admissions area of our website is designed to make the application process as simple as possible using our Online Application. This process simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.

Your Online Application must be completed and supplemental application forms (such as a Pastoral Reference Form) downloaded, completed, and returned to the school. 

A non-refundable fee of $50 for each Upper School applicant and $150 for each Lower School applicant must be submitted by debit or credit card with each application. (After July 15, the application fee is $150 for Upper School and $250 for Lower School.)  To begin the Online Application process, click here.Online Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be available on November 17, 2016.

Upon receipt of your application and supplemental forms (including a positive Pastoral Reference Form), an entrance testing appointment will be scheduled for applicants entering K5 - 6th grade. Testing for 1st - 6th grades will include assessment in reading, writing, math, and grammar.  After testing is scheduled, the office will contact you to arrange an interview with the Admissions Director, the Principal and a GCA Board member.  This interview will take approximately one hour.

The cost for this service is $41.  Priority is given to returning families and they must complete and submit their application by March 31.  A portion of the financial aid budget is reserved for newly enrolled families and will be made available on a first come - first served basis.
