GCA has been our home for the last four years. It was the best choice we could have made! Our kids have been welcomed by enthusiastic, caring teachers who love being with their students. There is a special feeling of family when you walk in the school. Teachers pray for kids and demonstrate God’s Word for them. The positive culture and excellence in programming are very noticeable. We have been extremely pleased with the well rounded educational experience —strong academics, Bible class and chapel, science lab and technology, performing arts, and extracurricular sports teams. We highly recommend GCA!

My son graduated from Grace Christian Academy in 2012 as a "lifer" (attended kindergarten through graduation). Leading, Building, and Equipping students isn't just a motto for the school--it is truly how the faculty and administration operate on a daily basis to prepare the students for living lives of excellence. After graduation, my son continued his education in a Christian environment and is now a pastor for a local church. When our daughter was born, there was no question about what school she would attend. We love this school and all of the opportunities it provides in academics, athletics, and arts--all with an incredible spiritual emphasis. GCA is the only school for our family!
My kids have been at GCA since kindergarten. I have a 6th grader and an 8th grader. There are SO many things we love about this school. First, the teachers love Christ and love the kids like their own. The school is always striving to improve our academic standards to give our kids the highest quality of education available. This helps to prep them for college while integrating biblical principles. They do a great job in bridging the gap with Christ in academics while making the Word of God applicable in everyday life. Whether it’s academics, sports, drama, or music, they have a wide variety of extracurricular activities for everyone to find a place to belong. In addition to academics, sports, and the arts, the school teaches the kids, and allows them the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus not just in our community, but world wide. They are being taught to give and serve others the way Christ desires. We are thankful to be part of this wonderful community!
