At Grove City Christian Academy, we strive for academic excellence and the development of a strong biblically sound view of every area of thought, word and deed.
Grove City Christian Academy seeks to instruct children concerning the sovereign Lord of creation, the purpose He has for them, and the nature of the creation over which He has placed man.
We strive to equip and assist children to faithfully and obediently carry out man's God-given task in Genesis 1:28: "God blessed them and said to them, 'Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.
Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.'" We want their convictions and beliefs regarding the whole of life to be rooted in the Bible.
While striving for academic excellence in every discipline, GCCA emphasizes a structured integration of our Christian world and life view in all of our studies.
We seek to reinforce the moral values and Christian faith that our students are taught in the home and church.
