General Enrollment Policy

While it is our joy to grant admission to Arrowhead Christian Academy, due to its educational aims as a Christian institution the administration reserves the right to deny admission.The administration may deny enrollment to a student who has been expelled from another school, since such a behavioral record reveals a conflict with ACA’s atmosphere of academic and spiritual growth.

ACA cannot guarantee accommodation of students with special needs at this time. The administration and faculty may investigate exceptions to this policy, however, if reasonable accommodation would not disrupt our traditional classroom environment.

Financial obligations to other private schools should be resolved before a family pursues admission to ACA.

As a Christian institution, ACA does not discriminate on the basis of color, race, or national origin in the administration of its policies, procedures, or programs.
