I have two children in GCA, the work is challenging, the curriculum is excellent, the teachers are solid and dedicated. My children could not get the same level of education and any where else at this price. They are taking AP classes and have advanced college credits. My oldest is a Senior this year and has been accepted to and was awarded a scholarship to her first choice University, I believe that she could not have accomplished this with out the caring staff at GCA .

I would recommend this school to any parent that is concerned about their child receiving a Christ-centered, Biblically sound, and academically rigorous education. The teachers are solid and demonstrate constant concern for their students. I have three children and have been satisfied with the education each one of them has received to this point. I also appreciate the school''s posture of not lowering their standards to accommodate governmental curriculum or testing. I don''t have much money but will send my children nowhere else as long as I am able. I love this place!
