HOW TO APPLY

Applying is easy using our Online Application. We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies the admission process  and provides parents a tool for tracking the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU

If you have not already done so, please consider making an appointment to visit. We would very much like to meet you and encourage you to tour our school and campus. We appreciate your interest and hope to assist you any way we can. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our Future Families Liaison, Dennis Bock, at 480-638-8032.

2022-23 PreK and Kindergarten Applications are now open!
2022-23 Applications for Grades 1-12 are now open!

Our Admissions Committee follows a 5-stage application review process:

  1. Application Submitted: Once you submit your application, we receive a notification.
  2. Application Review: We conduct a preliminary review of your application for completeness and fit with the GCS Family Profile. We will return your application for updates if needed.
  3. Interview: Applications that are complete and a fit for GCS will go into a queue for interviews. We interview applicants as spots become available, so the amount of time an application remains in Stage 3 is highly dependent upon our enrollment. We can not give information on your position in this queue; we can only disclose the number of applications in the queue for a particular grade and/or campus.Our Admissions Committee will contact you to set up an interview. Please note: an interview is not a guarantee that your student will be offered enrollment.
  4. Admissions Committee Review: After the interview, our Admissions Committee will discuss and make a decision on whether to offer enrollment. Applications move through this stage quickly, usually no more than a few days.
  5. Enrollment Offer: You will receive an email with instructions to submit an enrollment packet. The student’s birth certificate and immunization records will be required in order to submit this packet.

Admission Consideration for Students with a Perceived Educational Disability

  • All children are created in the image of God and therefore receive love, respect, and educational opportunity if accepted at Gilbert Christian Elementary School.
  • Some students with special needs are accepted at GCS.
  • Parents of students with special needs must interview with the building principal to determine if GCS is the best learning environment for the special needs student.
  • Speech therapy is available on our campus for a reasonable but extra fee.
  • GCS offers limited special education assistance; our special education practices help classroom teachers address learning challenges in the regular classroom.
  • Time with a special education teacher may be available as a pull-out option for some children. This service is offered for a reasonable but extra fee.
  • Not declaring that your child has a special need, IEP or 504 plan is not in the best interest of the child’s education. Please fill out admission materials carefully.
