GGA will only admit new students between the ages of 4 and 11.  Exceptions to this policy may be made if students are transferring from another Christian school with similar values and curriculum, and/or who demonstrate outstanding Christian character and mastery of English. At least one parent must be a permanent resident in Guangzhou.



ESL ENROLLMENT POLICY Children whose first language is not English must take an English proficiency test.  If they diagnose more than 2 years behind their chronological grade level they will not be admitted, unless a special non-graduation (ESL) program is desired.  Parents will be required to sign an enrollment acceptance letter in this case.   The ESL fee is charged to these and any other students receiving special help in the English as a Second Language program.

 The tuition fee may be paid in 1 or 2 installments.   The tuition fee covers everything except lunches, the school uniform and snacks and drinks that children buy on field trips.   Transportation to school on current school bus routes is presently subsidized by the school.

Ø       The school hours are from 8:30 to 3:15, Monday through Friday.  After school activities include choir, band, sports, etc.

Ø       Currentlyschool bus route picks up children in the Tianhe area and Panyu area.  If there are at least 5 students living in another area of Guangzhou a new bus route can be arranged.

Ø       Children may bring their own lunches, which can be heated in the microwave or parents may order a delivery lunch service.

Ø       The uniform is obligatory for all students every day.  It should be purchased through the school. P.E. uniform is worn on Tuesdays and Friday.

Ø       Before enrolling in Grace Academy, new students take diagnostic tests to determine their true performance level in every subject.  Students will be prescribed curriculum according to the results of this test rather than by their age or grade.

Ø       To help ensure mastery learning a minimum score of 88% on PACE tests is required before a student is allowed to advance to the next PACE.

Ø       We offer basic oral Chinese for children in our Kindergarten and Lower Learning Centers.  Older children may receive individualized material in Chinese tailored to their needs.

Ø       Grace Academy’s small student body and low teacher/student ratio provide an excellent environment for training children.  Character training, learning skills, interpersonal relationships, and much more all find an ideal setting in our family-style environment.
