Enrollment and Registration Information


Greenforest-McCalep Christian Academic Center is open to all students regardless of religious affiliation (or lack thereof), race, and/or ethnic origin. However, we are not presently equipped to meet the needs of children who are mentally or emotionally impaired, nor those with severe learning disabilities and other special needs.

We actively seek to enroll students. New students may enroll during open enrollment periods. Current students desiring to continue their matriculation at GMCA MUST apply for re-admittance each year by completing a re-enrollment application and paying a re-enrollment fee.

A prospective student should meet the following criteria in order to be admitted or readmitted to Greenforest-McCalep Christian Academic Center:

 

  • Students should have a good academic school record as well as an acceptable record of psychological and social values (records containing expulsions substance abuse, or arrests must be further reviewed for probationary acceptance consideration).

  • Students and their parents/guardians must desire a superior education under-girded by strong Christian teaching.

  • New students must pass an in-house admissions assessment examination with a minimum score of 75%.

  • Students, along with their parents or legal guardians, should bring the following documents to register (Legal guardians will need to furnish guardianship papers processed through the probate court):
