Grace Christian Academy Reviews

We wanted a school that represents our worldview most effectively - one in which the Gospel is of most importance, one that demands rigorous learning, one that presents all sides of issues while instilling a sound Biblical worldview, and one that equips their students with the skills necessary to compete and excel in life. We got all of the above with Grace Christian Academy and more! We would not send our kids anywhere else.

I've been a teacher here for six years and have loved every minute of it. The staff are hard-working and motivated, the students are bright and diligent, and parents are very involved and supportive. It has always felt like a second family. While the school has struggled with access to resources like sports facilities, it offers plenty of extracurricular opportunities to students such as flag football, basketball, volleyball, chess, NYSSMA, school play, service club, journalism club, ASL club, and an after-school enrichment program. In my six years here, the school has grown tremendously. I would love for it to be able to expand its buildings and facilities to accommodate the growing enrollment so more people can join our family.
As homeschooling parents for almost 13 years, my husband and I feel very strongly about our responsibility to not only educate, but also to train up our children to know and love the Lord. As our older children approached high school, homeschooling several grade levels was becoming very difficult and we knew we had to make some changes. Government schools was not an option, but thankfully Grace Christian Academy was!! Our older children have been going to GCA for 3 years and we are so happy with our experience. They are getting an excellent education that is preparing them for college by teachers who are effective, God fearing , and caring. We can rest easy knowing that GCA does not undermine the spiritual instruction we give our children. In fact, they supplement it by striving to keep Christ at the center of their educational philosophy. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a quality education that is beyond reproach to consider Grace Christian Academy!
