Application Process

Asheville Christian Academy is grateful for its warm community of families and looks forward to welcoming new families each year. ACA has a rolling admission policy and will process completed applications as long as space is available. The applicant is responsible for ensuring that all steps in the application process are completed. Your application will be considered for admission only after all required documentation (Step 1) has been received by ACA.

Step 1 - Submit Forms

Completed Application for Admission including the signed Partnership Agreement and a $200 non-refundable application fee. Checks should be made out to Asheville Christian Academy.

Admissions Required Supplemental Forms - Please complete the required application supplemental packet and submit to appropriate recipients for completion. Recommendations, transcripts, and reference forms must be mailed directly to ACA and should not be turned in with the application.  Also include the following documents: 

  • Copy of Most Recent Report Card
  • Copy of Most Recent Achievement Testing
  • Copy of Birth Certificate
  • Copy of Immunization Records 

Step 2 - Entrance Testing

The Admissions office will contact you to schedule the entrance assessment.  The assessment days are usually scheduled on a Saturday morning and run approximately two hours.

Step 3 - Partnership Conference

Your family will meet with the head of school, the head of lower, middle or upper school, and the business office.

Step 4 - Admissions Committee Review

Following the interview, student applications will be presented to the Admissions Committee for review. Parents will be notified regarding acceptance within two weeks following the interview.

Admissions decisions are made through a careful and thoughtful process by our admissions committee. ACA has a rolling admission policy and will process completed applications as long as space is available. Applications are considered complete and will be processed for enrollment only after all required documentation has been received by ACA. Applications received after August 1, are not guaranteed to be processed by the first day of school.

ACA 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. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration or its education policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Wait Pool Process
When the process is complete and it is determined that the applicant is a qualified candidate for admission to ACA, but that grade is full, the applicant will be placed in a wait pool for their particular grade. When an opening becomes available, all students in the wait pool for that grade will be considered. Once a decision is reached, the parents of the applicant selected will be notified of an offer for acceptance. Applicants are not assigned a number in the wait pool process. Each time an opening becomes available, all candidates for that grade are considered equally. Applicants in the wait pool must reapply for each new student.
