Geneva Academy uses an admissions procedure that resembles the application process used in many other private schools and colleges. The current procedure allows the school to accurately identify and admit students from families who have clearly expressed convictions that are similar to the school’s regarding the education of children.
The selection and make-up of the school’s student body is second only to staff selection in the impact it has upon the school’s mission. The family-like atmosphere Geneva Academy seeks to foster and currently enjoys is due in great measure to the similarity of biblical convictions and principles taught and lived out in many of the homes of our students. As the Lord blesses us with growth and change, we want to do all we can to maintain and build up that atmosphere.
The basic process for new applicants is as follows:
- January 1: New applications received
- Interviews, school visits, and requisite documentation related to each new student will be evaluated.
- Notification of acceptance or denial will be mailed to each applicant. Accepted applicants will receive all appropriate information for preparing for school, including financial arrangements.
- After June 10: Applications will be considered as they are received and as space permits.
A student’s academic achievements will be considered in the application process, but only for grade placement, not as the primary determinant for acceptance. Again, we are seeking to enroll those students who, because of their own families’ priorities, will most benefit from what Geneva Academy can offer to them.
