Amazing Grace Academy's (AGA) admissions process is as follows:
To start the application process please read through all the steps first, then follow the steps below:
The admissions process begins with a school tour and a meeting with our principal. This is the best opportunity for both the school and the family to learn about educational goals, as well as spiritual, emotional, and physical goals for the student. The introduction meeting is highly valuable in establishing shared outcomes for growing and educating students enrolled at AGA. Students are encouraged to attend with their parents.
An invitation to apply is emailed which includes an online application packet with all materials and information necessary for families to make an informed decision. It is strongly recommended that parents and students allow ample time to complete the application process. Gathering and reviewing materials takes time, and classes do fill in advance of the new school year.
Submit completed application and non-refundable application fee of $50.
*Please Note: The Jupiter student information system requests a gender pronoun at time of application. This setting cannot be changed since Jupiter is an independent vendor that strictly handles AGA’s enrollment processing. It is not part of AGA or the Alaska Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.*
As part of the application review process, you will need to submit or provide:
Please know that AGA does not have the resources to accommodate students that have a significant IEP or require substantial academic interventions to help them meet grade-level goals.
Students are tested prior to enrollment to assess reading, spelling, and arithmetic skills. Testing results are utilized to confirm grade-readiness and identify strengths and weaknesses. A follow-up meeting is scheduled to discuss the test results and educational recommendations.
Families meet with the principal to discuss the test results and any educational recommendations AGA may have for their student. If the student is accepted, an enrollment offer is extended during the consultation.
Should the student be denied acceptance, alternative programs may be recommended and discussed. Acceptance/Denial is based on many factors including, but not limited to, classroom space, test performance, discipline records, observation and information provided to us by previous teachers, and counselors and the student’s academic records. We want to make sure that your child will be a good fit for AGA and that AGA will be a good fit for your child.
An enrollment offer is extended via email which requires completion of an online enrollment packet. This includes providing important student documents and acknowledgment of school policies and protocols. Enrollment is confirmed and a student is officially accepted upon successful completion of the enrollment packet.
Minimum age for students entering school:
We do not accept students younger than these ages, regardless of placement testing done somewhere else.
