Admission Requirements


Dear Prospective Students and Families:

We are thankful for your interest in our school. Making a decision about your child’s education is an important decision. The GCS administration and staff welcome questions and visits so you may see for yourself all God has provided for children and families at Gilbert Christian Schools. See our Admission Process.

The best way to find out about the philosophy, curriculum, and programs of Gilbert Christian Schools is to attend a future families meeting. These meetings include a presentation and tour and are held monthly while school is in session.

You and your child may also observe a classroom or obtain a tour of the campus by calling:

  • Elementary/Middle School Campus – 480.279.1366
  • High School Campus – 480.699.1215

Elementary

SpiritualBehaviorAcademic Age
It is required that the student or one of the parents has made a profession of faith in Christ. The student and parents should understand and affirm their agreement with the Gilbert Christian Schools’ mission statement and statement of faith. In the case of an unbelieving student or parent, there must be agreement, understanding, and support of our teachings and beliefs.
Students abide by a code of conduct requiring discipline, respect for authority, neatness in physical appearance, courteous and appropriate speech, and abstinence from tobacco, drugs, and alcohol.
For students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grades, our goal is to provide basic core knowledge that prepares students for the rigors of the GCS junior high and high school program, as well as a better understanding of God’s world and the saving faith found in Jesus Christ. With that said, we do make room for a limited number of students with an educational disability (ie., learning disabilities, educable mentally handicapped, attention deficit disorders, etc.). These students are mainstreamed into a regular classroom. An interview by the principal with the student and parents is required.
Students registering for kindergarten must be five years of age prior to September 1st of the current school year.

Gilbert Christian Schools may admit children who have not reached the required age if it is determined by administration that it is in the best interest of the children. Such children must reach the required age of five prior to October 1st of the current school year.

A child may repeat kindergarten with the parent approval, a teacher’s recommendation, and the direction of Gilbert Christian School administration.

Students abide by a code of conduct requiring discipline, respect for authority, neatness in physical appearance, courteous and appropriate speech, abstinence from tobacco, drugs, and alcohol, and a commitment to the use of leisure time which is consistent with Christian character.
We seek students willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous program of academics, fine arts, extracurricular activities, and athletics in a caring Christian environment designed to prepare students for college and for life. Students accepted in middle school grades are placed on academic and social probation for the first nine-week grading quarter. Gilbert Christian Schools attempts to serve a large cross section of students, including those with average and above-average abilities. Students labeled with an educational disability (ie., learning disabilities, educable mentally handicapped, attention deficit disorder, etc.) may be accepted, but only with principal and/or teacher approval.
