Application Process

We welcome the opportunity to partner with your family in providing a Christ-centered, vigorous academic environment for your student.

Understanding Classical Christian Education

Parents are encouraged to gain as much information possible about classical Christian education prior to applying for admission. Arma Dei Academy wants to ensure the best fit possible for both the academy and the student. To complete the enrollment process all parents must attend an open house.

Open houses for the 2017/2018 school year are held on the first Wednesday of each month (November – May) from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

If you are interested in enrollment for the 2017/2018 school year, contact Lora Bowman to schedule a tour and receive more information.

In addition to attending an open house, we recommend you familiarize yourself with classical Christian education through our website and the following:
