Amazing Grace Academy

Educating Alaska's Pre-K through High School Students for Today and Eternity

HOW TO APPLY

OPEN TO ALL

Amazing Grace Academy is open to students who desire a Christian education and who work to perform their very best. Students who apply work in accordance with the objectives of the school and live in harmony with its principals and their fellow students.

Amazing Grace Academy's (AGA) admissions process is as follows:

New Student Applicants for the 2022-2023 School Year

To start the application process please read through all the steps first, then follow the steps below: ​

Step 1

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.

Schedule a Tour

Step 2

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 competed 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:

  • Three references who will complete and return to AGA a confidential evaluation form.
  • Math and language arts recommendation forms for students entering grades 5-12.
  • Provide work samples for math and language arts (1st through 4th grades).
  • Provide unofficial transcripts from student's current school.
  • Any IEP or 504 plans.
  • Behavior and attendance records.

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Families meet with the principal to discuss the test results and any educational recommendations AGA may have for their student. An enrollment offer is extended during the consultation. Should the student be denied acceptance, alternative programs may be recommended and discussed.

Step 5

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.
