Please contact admissions@gcaschool.com for availability for the 2021-22 school year.

What makes your Kindergarten program unique?


To start, we offer an enriched program with the focus being that the students will enter grade one with the fundamentals of reading and writing, as well as having an introduction to math. Secondly, as we are a Christian private school, all of our teaching is Bible-based and plays a prominent role in the classroom.




What are your Kindergarten options?


We offer five part-time full-day classes (Tues/Thurs and alternate Mon; Wed/Fri and alternate Mon). School day starts at 8:20 am and students are dismissed at 3:20 pm. For those that are looking for a program that includes all school days, please refer to our ABC/Royal Cubs program which provides extra care.




How many children are in a class?


There are 20 spots available in each program. Each class has both a teacher and a teaching assistant.




Can I choose the program I want?


Once accepted, you will be given the opportunity to give your preference. Many factors are involved in placing students so we attempt to accommodate but do not promise any program.




How far in advance can I register for your program?


The Kindergarten program is in high demand at GCA. If you are interested in your child being a part of our school community, you should submit an application one year in advance. Kindergarten application acceptance for the school year opens in September. We do not offer a waiting list beyond one year in advance. All children applying for Kindergarten must turn 5 years of age by December 31st of the year you want them to start. If your child is applying for September of 2022, they must be 5 or have turned 5 by December 31, 2022. Applications are available online through our website here or at our Main Elementary Office. There is a non-refundable application fee of $200.




Will my child automatically get a Kindergarten placement?


Kindergarten applications do not work on a first-come/first-served basis although date received is a contributing factor. Families with current students have first priority when it comes to our Kindergarten spaces. All new families will attend an interview with our Head of School.




What is the cost for your Kindergarten program?


Kindergarten fees may increase from year to year and can be paid over a 12 month payment plan. The other cost involved once your child has been accepted, is the payment of the $2000 Facility Fee. This is a one-time fee that is paid by all first students in a family when registering at GCA. The second and subsequent children in a family pay $500. Please visit our Cost Schedule page for details on all grades including Kindergarten.




What if I have more questions?


If you have questions, please feel free to contact our Registrar, Heidy Zumbrunn Aviles, at admissions@gcaschool.com. You can also visit our FAQ page for general information. We hold tours by appointment on Fridays at 1:00 pm during the school year. Visit here to book a tour, or RSVP for an Information Evening.
