Admissions

All new and returning students are admitted on probation until official documents are received by GCSS from the last school attended. Any grade placement is temporary until our official
determination is made (Code 1612).

“All students who present themselves for admission to the school thereby pledge to willingly observe all its regulations, to uphold the Christian principles upon which the school is operated
and, to the best of their ability, perform all school duties assigned to them. It is also understood that should they break their pledge, they forfeit their right to attend the school. If they are retained in the school, it is at the discretion of the faculty and of the school board” (Code 1600).
