In some cases a significant other person(s) in the student's life such as a grandparent may suffice.

For new students K-4 and above an interview by the Headmaster or designated person with at least one parent/guardian is required. An overview of GCS will be given with emphasis on explaining our mission statement. Students under expulsion from other schools will only in rare circumstances be considered for GCS enrollment. Attention will be given to a student's grades, courses, conduct at previous school, present attitude, and standardized tests. An assessment test administered by GCS may be necessary for proper placement. Starting in the K-5 grade parents agree to allow school personnel to administer corporal punishment (spanking) as necessary. The school reserves the right to dismiss any student who does not respect its Christian standards or cooperate in the education process.
