Campus Tours

The best way to visit Gaston Christian School is to attend one of our Open House Events.

At these events, you’ll tour the campus, meet our teachers, coaches and administrators, hear from some of our students, watch classroom demos, and learn about all of our programs – from athletics to performing arts – all in one visit. They’re informative, exciting and fun!

If you’re unable to attend these events, we’d be happy to arrange a school day tour. Please contact the Admission Director, Carrie Bailey, 704-824-4128, to arrange one.

 

The Admission process for each grade level has slightly different requirements: however, they share a common goal.  We want to get to know your child and your family.

Admissions Standards:
Based on our philosophy statement, Gaston Christian School’s admission standards are designed to help the admissions committee identify those students who will likely be successful in this type of program. The admissions committee considers the following criteria when evaluating student applications:

*Aptitude and/or academic achievement in the average to above average range
*Age-appropriate development, socially and emotionally
*Amenable to instruction and correction
*Desire to attend Gaston Christian School
*Parents/guardians who are supportive of the school and its Statement of Faith, Philosophy Statement, and Mission Statement.
*Students entering Kindergarten must meet the minimum age requirement (age 5 on or before August 31st) and should show an overall readiness to begin school.

*Due solely to the limited resources of the school, we regret that we are not equipped to meet the needs of students who may require unique or specialized learning programs. If your student has an IEP or special learning plan, we will need complete documentation.

Gaston Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid, athletic, and other school administered programs.
