From Grace Christian Academy

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Grace Christian Academy! From the classroom to the theatre, from the chapel to the playing fields, GCA is preparing scholars, leaders, champions and disciples. Grace Christian Academy opened its doors at the beginning of the 1997-98 school year. As the school has grown and developed, one thing has stayed the same: our mission to lead, build, and equip students to become lifelong disciples of Christ.

The best way to experience Grace Christian Academy is to visit our beautiful campus nestled in West Knoxville just a short drive away from the Great Smoky Mountains. Come meet our distinguished faculty, tour our best-in-class facilities and witness the impact a loving and Christ-centered education can have on your student and family.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Upper School Experience

academic spotlight

Learning outside the traditional classroom has become the mantra of GCA's Winterim program. The week before spring break, upperclass students leave traditional classroom settings to travel (domestic or international), take on-campus courses, or participate in an internship. Students are encouraged to utilize the Winterim week to explore potential career fields through experiences and internships.
