Educating Lifelong Learners
Thank you for your interest in Jonathan Edwards Classical Academy. The selection and make-up of the school’s student body are second only to staff selection in the impact it has on the school’s mission. JECA welcomes families who long for a truly God-centered, God-promoting education to apply to join with us. Classical Education does not tend us toward perfection, but it does address the whole of each child, seeking to make them complete in Christ. JECA seeks to offer a rigorous and joyful education in an atmosphere that is orderly, restful, and beautiful.
Applying at JECA
Our Admissions process is broken down into four steps:
STEP ONE: GET TO KNOW JECA
Click here to schedule a visit to our school, meet faculty and staff, and observe classroom instruction. Most initial tours take about 1-1/2 hours.
STEP TWO: PRAY & APPLY
If you believe God is calling you to partner with JECA after a tour and meeting with the Headmaster, we will send you a link to an online application. The application is meant to be thorough and includes applicant and family information, Pastor Recommendation Form, submission of Report Cards (or copies of “best work” if home-schooled) and payment of the Application Fee.
STEP THREE: SHADOW DAY & ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT
Students are encouraged to shadow a JECA student for a half-day or full-day of class. Visiting students will experience a day at JECA, meet teachers, observe classes, and make new friends. Our Enrollment Coordinator will contact you to schedule those dates. Long-distance and summer applicants may be exempted from shadowing as necessary.
STEP FOUR: ACCEPTANCE AND REGISTRATION
You will be notified by mail once our headmaster makes a determination concerning your application. Upon acceptance, you will register with FACTS Management Company, our tuition and billing service provider. If you are interested in applying for Tuition Assistance, plan to discuss your options with the Headmaster during your tour and interview.
Thank you again for your interest in partnering with us in our mission to teach children to know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and beautiful. It’s our hope that we can answer any questions and help you evaluate whether JECA is the best choice for your family. We are here to help from the initial inquiry to final enrollment. Email Admissions@JECANashville.org or call 615-876-7291 to let us know how we can assist you.
