School Policies

It is distinctly understood that every student who applies for admission to Greater New York Academy thereby pledges to observe the Christian principles upon which this Academy is operated, whether they are on or off campus. If this pledge is broken, it is further understood that by such infractions they may forfeit this membership. In all phases of student life on the campus, students are encouraged to conduct themselves as wholesome Christian citizens. No more is expected; no less is acceptable.

The aim of the students of the Academy is the aim set forth by Inspiration: "Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God's ideal for His children. Godliness-- Godlikeness-- is the goal to be reached." With this aim the student strives to become more like the perfect example of Jesus Christ.

As students, faculty and staff strive toward excellence, all can join with Paul in declaring, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," Philippians 4: 13.
