Grace Christian Academy Reviews

26 reviews

Our experience at GCA has been outstanding! The Gospel is prominent and integrated into all academic and social life, while following its guidelines in disciplinary matters, making for some great discipleship. GCA's Classical approach is not only challenging but has equipped our kids to enter the college arena prepared and to face their culture's hostile worldview in a way that is Christ-like and well-informed. Drawing students in from the Bronx to Suffolk County and from over 45 different school districts, there is a reason so many families go to such lengths to be here. We would find it difficult to go anywhere else after experiencing a GCA education!

We loved GCA before COVID19. Now we love it even more! Our children’s teachers were online with them two to three times a day, giving them assignments in each subject, instructing them in new material, assessing them online, and working over time to maintain their normal academic level. These teachers are making sure our kids are well prepared for next fall and they have sacrificed a lot to do it! We don’t want our kids to just get by but to develop stamina, steadfastness and character. We have certainly gotten what we asked for!
Grace Christian Academy is a wonderful place where your child can obtain an outstanding education. When I first visited the school, I was not very familiar with classical education. After meeting with the school’s headmaster and meeting a few students, I knew that’s where I wanted my daughter to be. We mainly wanted a Christian school with the strong academics, Grace Christian Academy surpassed all my expectations. The Biblical teaching is sound and deep. The students, including the little ones in the lower school, are well versed in scripture. In addition, everything the school teaches, from the curriculum to conflict resolution is Bible based. I highly recommend this school to anyone seeking, more than a school, a safe place to send their child to learn true Christian values and the best academic education in Long Island.
