We started GCA when our daughter was 3, she is now almost 7. We have been very pleased with the growth and vision of the school.
She is writing in cursive in the 1st grade and recently read a companion book to the Narnia series on her own, wowing our family members. The small group rotations that focuses on phonemic awareness and math skills are very successful. She looks forward to doing simple graphic design projects, and coding activities in computer. The art teacher posts her drawings online which can be easily shared to our out of state family. She knows numerous Spanish phrases which she is compelled to use when we go out for Mexican! We could not be more pleased.
The teachers are easily accessible through Remind and welcome parents to volunteer. We recieve weekly communication concerning assignments and events.
The new Sportsplex is incredible and will only continue to open doors of opportunity for athletic programs!
We are #knights4life !

I am so exited about my children being part of the Guardian Family. Since we moved to the area in the middle of the school year, our children were accepted by their peers, their teachers and the administrationThe staff helped them adjust to life at a new school. I have seen my son, come out of his shell and my daughter take on leadership roles that I never would have thought possible. I watch each day as the teachers engage my children to make sure they are staying on track both academically and spiritually. I see my kids being challenged, daily, to deepen their faith and trust in God. I thank God for administration that cares deeply about the kids and truly wants to partner with teachers to change the lives of the students. I thank God for GCA and the impact they are making in Chesterfield County!
I have gone to Guardian Christian for eight years and have loved them all. The teachers are genuinely caring and invested in your education. The class sizes are small, which allows for lots of individual attention and any student who is struggling with a concept only has to ask for help. The student culture is very supportive and accepting, and the only way to not make friends is to not try. GCA is a growing school, and continues to add new programs and activities every years while maintaining the values upon which it was founded. Very happy with my middle and high school experience!
