ADMISSIONS

The Process

CGA accepts applications throughout the year. Official enrollment season for the upcoming school year begins January 18, 2022. Though you may enter the application process as early as you’d like, registration and attendance at one of our Preview Days is a requirement prior to being accepted into enrollment, so please plan accordingly and take advantage of our Preview Day opportunities, posted below.

 To begin the process, please submit the application linked below and the non-refundable application fee. Once your application has been submitted, if you have already attended a Preview Day, you will receive an email to schedule student assessment by a CGA teacher upon receipt of the application and fee. We look specifically to determine if math, reading, writing, and grammar are at the appropriate grade level. If you have not yet attended a Preview Day, your application will not yet be processed. 

The final step in the application process is the parent interview. This is an opportunity for parents to meet with our administration to learn more about CGA and for us to learn more about your family.

 

Please note that, for their starting year, Kindergarten students must turn five by September 30.

Preview Days

Attendance is required at one of our Preview Days prior to your parent interview in the enrollment process. As you endeavor to learn about and know the many educational options in Mobile, we hope to provide more information about our school. It is our honor to help families understand the mission and vision of CGA and to share our distinctives as a unique classical Christian school that enjoys a strong partnership with parents. We look forward to helping you walk through the admissions process should you choose CGA for your child’s education.

 

We believe our Preview Days are the best way to see the heartbeat of what we do. We encourage you to join us at our next Preview Day to learn a little more about our mission, faculty, and community.
