We hope to inspire a strong love of learning and a love for Jesus that persists through our students’ entire lives, creating passionate, life-long learners and followers of Christ.
Because GCA is a mission-oriented, Christian educational organization, we believe every employee is part of a team responsible for exemplifying and encouraging other staff and students in their daily Christian living. We work with our team to live and act according to biblical standards and the core doctrines of the evangelical Christian faith in order to inspire others to do the same.From Kindergarten to high school, we work with parents to point children to Christ through each subject. Each of our grades are seen as a treasured discipleship opportunity. As we discuss each of the subjects, we search for ways to encourage a gospel-centered life.
Not only does GCA pride itself on academics, we also believe our students should be well-rounded and have fun, too! Students can participate in a variety of extracurricular activities such as sports and fine arts.
We offer sports such as cross country, track, basketball, and golf. We encourage students to be creative with our fine arts curriculum, which includes music and musical instruments, film, and worship. We believe that all of these talents are gifts from God, and we love to use them to serve others and worship God.
GCA offers weekly chapel experiences, opportunities for public speaking, and a variety of prayer events to encourage spirituality throughout the student body. Our students are well-versed in apologetics, as well, so that they can “be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15). We believe our daily lives and interactions with other people are also acts of worship.
