I am aware that the rules and policies of the Academy are to be found in the Academy
Handbook. I have read and agree with the rules in the Handbook. Some of the pertinent areas in the Academy Handbook of which I am aware are the following:
PASTOR’S LETTER: GACA requires parents to present a letter of recommendation from their pastor along with their application. All applications
must be approved by the school board. We desire to retain a reputable Christian School. We expect students to commit themselves to the code of conduct of GACA at all times.
UNIFORMS: Students are required to wear uniforms. Students are also required to purchase a tee shirt which has the school name and logo for P.E. class. This will be ordered through the school.
CHAPEL: Chapel service is on Wednesday. Students participate in activities such as Bible drills, singing, special speakers, and Bible study. Lower grades
have a separate chapel service geared for their age group and comprehension level.
FRIDAY DISMISSAL: The Academy will not be in session on Friday in order to provide the staff and administration sufficient time for staff meetings, inventory, and other needs pertinent to the well-being of the Academy. There is an extended 45 minutes Monday through Thursday (school hours 7:45a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) in order to compensate for Friday class dismissal.
TRANSPORATION: The academy does not have a busing service available to students. Parents should provide transportation for students. Car pooling
among participating parents has been successful in the past.
LUNCH PROGRAM: The academy does not furnish a hot lunch program. Students must bring their own lunches. LUNCH BOXES ARE TO BE PLAIN -
NO PICTURES OR CHARACTERS, SLOGAN, ETC. Students' name should be clearly marked on all lunch boxes or paper bags.
EYE EXAMINATION: We recommend that new students have a recent eye examination prior to enrollment. If the student already wears glasses, please see that their prescription is up to date.
