Thank you for considering Greater Memphis Adventist Academy for your child. Applications are accepted at any time.

Please begin the process by filling out this inquiry form, and contact our Principal who will answer your initial questions and will schedule a tour (in-person or virtual) for you. Please email gmaaeagles@gmail.com or call (901) 775-3960.

Visitor Mornings and Open Houses are scheduled September through March to provide interested families like yours a chance to meet teachers and see classes in action. During your first visit, we will provide an information packet for you to learn more about our school.


Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Process

Please consider our eligibility policy: All pre-kindergarten children should be 4 years old by August 15 of the admitting year and fully toilet trained, and all kindergarten children should be 5 years old by August 15 of the admitting year.

After taking the tour, you will be asked to submit an application. Once your application is received, the school admissions committee will review it. If it appears that there is a good fit for the child, the family, and the class, you will be invited to meet with the teacher. After that meeting, a classroom visit will be scheduled for you and your child. The principal and teacher will then meet with you to share the highlights of the experience and to discuss the next steps needed to finalize the enrollment process.

Greater Memphis Adventist Academy bases acceptance into our pre-kindergarten/ kindergarten program on our ability to meet children’s needs and factors such as age ratios and overall class makeup.


Grade School Admissions Process

Step 1. Parent Inquiry

          Please begin the process by filling out this inquiry form or contact our Principal who will answer your initial questions and will schedule a tour (in-person or virtual) for you. After your visit, if GMAA seems like a good fit for your child, we ask that you complete an online application and submit prior school records for your child.

Step 2. Student Visit

           Upon receipt of the application and transcript, the Administrative Assistant will schedule a school visit for your child. This visit gives the student, parents, and faculty an opportunity to assess whether or not Greater Memphis Adventist Academy is the ideal next educational step for you. During the visit, prospective students are welcomed into classes to engage with teachers and students and join them during lunch. Applicants are usually paired with a current student who will guide them to each class and answer questions.

Step 3. Interview

           During the visit, we will arrange an interview between parents and the class teacher. This interview is an opportunity for parents and class teachers to discuss the education as it pertains to the individual child. It also allows parents to express their expectations and enables the class teacher to assess if Greater Memphis Adventist Academy can accommodate the young person’s gifts and challenges. Acceptance into the Greater Memphis Adventist Academy is based on availability and the school’s ability to meet each child’s needs.

Step 4. Enrollment & Financial Arrangements

           Upon acceptance, you will be asked to electronically sign the enrollment contract and pay the registration fee. Click here to see this year’s fees and tuition. Students are enrolled when all forms and required fees are paid.

           Any child whose application is received after the class has reached maximum enrollment will be placed on a waiting list after having been interviewed. Special consideration is given to siblings already enrolled in our school.
