Things to consider

books

No student will be admitted:

  1. Who has serious academic, conduct, emotional, learning, or physical problems which interfere with participation in the regular academic program and for which our program is not equipped or staffed, unless parents are willing to bear the expense of all additional staff and services.
  2. Whose parents or guardian are not willing to abide by the purpose, philosophy, objectives and policies of Gilead Christian School.

All applicants are considered for enrollment regardless of race, color or national original. The Gilead Christian School recruits and admits students of any race, color, gender or ethnic origin to all its rights, privileges, programs and activities. In addition, the school will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational programs, scholarships, loans, fees, tuition waivers, and athletics/extracurricular activities, nor in the hiring of faculty or administrative staff. Furthermore, the school is not intended to be an alternative to any court or administrative agency order, or public school district initiated desegregation.

The Enrollment Decision:

After review of the information from the interview and the enrollment application, you will receive a letter from Gilead Christian School letting you know of your acceptance or decline. The administrator will make all final enrollment decisions.

Additional paperwork regarding demographics, payment and more will be mailed with the acceptance letter. The additional paperwork with the non-refundable tuition deposit needs to be returned to the Finance Office.

Not until all paperwork has been submitted, a payment plan has been put in place and the tuition deposit has been made will a child be considered enrolled at Gilead Christian School. As a parent, you know that all children are not alike. Each child has his or her own special talents, interests, academic and emotional needs. A school that is right for one may not be the best choice for another. ​​

When you are selecting a school, prayerfully consider these:
Is the curriculum appropriate for my child’s talents and goals?
Will the school challenge without overwhelming?
Will my child be comfortable in the school’s environment? Will I?
Will my child learn the values and Christian ethics that are important to our family?
