Admissions FAQ

When should we apply?

We offer our current families the opportunity to re-enroll each year during the month of February. Open enrollment for new families begins March 1, and remains open until seats are filled.

Do you offer any financial aid?

GCA accepts the NC Opportunity Scholarship, a a program that helps families who make below a certain amount of income pay tuition and fees at private schools.

Why do families choose GCA after considering all private schools in the area?

We find that parents settle on GCA for three reasons: 

  • We provide a distinctly Christian education, with all subjects taught from a biblical worldview
  • Students receive a high-quality, traditional education that prepares them for college and life

We see each student as a unique and valuable creation of God. Our Resource Program for special education needs allows us to serve students who have documented learning disabilities, or simply need extra help to thrive academically.
