Green Bay Adventist Junior Academy (AJA) admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to the students at the school. The school does not discriminate because of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin in administration of its admissions policy, educational programs, financial aids, student aid or any other school program.
In its admission practices, AJA does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, but does discriminate on the basis of sexual misconduct, which includes but is not limited to non-marital sexual misconduct, homosexual conduct, or the encouragement or advocacy of any form of sexual behavior that would undermine the Christian identity or faith mission of Green Bay Adventist Junior Academy and the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church.
AJA is open to all boys and girls of the Seventh-day Church who wish to do earnest and faithful work and desire to develop a Christian character. AJA is not limited to the children of Seventh-day Adventist parents, but is selective. AJA is not equipped to accommodate students who have severe behavioral problems as it does not have a remedial staff that can meet the needs of a student with emotional or severe learning disabilities.
AJA administration reserves the right to place a student in the grade or coursework at which he/she can achieve his/her best work regardless of credits or coursework completed by the student at another school. This is accomplished through teacher recommendations, placement tests and consultations with a parent.
To be admitted into Kindergarten, a child must be five years old by September 1 of the current school year.
All students and parents shall, by their signature, indicate that they have read and agree to the policies outlined in the pages of the AJA Student Handbook at the time of registration and before their admittance to school.
Attendance at AJA is a privilege, not a right. The administration of AJA has the right to dismiss any student in order to safeguard the scholastic, spiritual and moral atmosphere of the school.
The first time parents apply for admission to AJA for their student, the AJA Principal/Administration will grant the student a conditional acceptance until the following required steps are completed:
Parents complete and submit the required enrollment applications to the AJA School Secretary. In the event parents request AJA financial aid for tuition assistance, they should complete the AJA Financial Aid Application and submit IN A SEALED ENVELOPE the signed application with required documentation to be forwarded to the AJA Treasurer.
Parents and prospective student meet with the AJA Principal/Administration and classroom teacher.
All parents may meet with AJA Treasurer to complete financial process of registration. Parents requesting financial aid must meet with the Treasurer AND Finance Committee to determine qualification of financial aid.
The AJA school office requests and receives the cum-folder of each student applying for admission from school previously attended.
The Principal/Administration receives and reviews the cum-folder, and addresses any possible concerns.
The Principal/Administration and/or AJA Treasurer submits student’s name to AJA School Board for final approval.
The parents/guardians and their students must review the 2019-2020 AJA Student Handbook, and sign and date the agreement contract (separate document provided) which states they will follow the policies as written and uphold the school’s values.
For students in Kindergarten through 2nd grades, parents/guardians’ signature will suffice; students in 3rd through 10th grades must sign and date the agreement form along with their parents/guardians.
Based on a recommendation from AJA Principal/Administration, the AJA School Board will remove conditional status and grant final approval for admittance to AJA School.*
*Exception: Temporary extension of conditional acceptance may occur for academic or behavioral concerns.
