School Reviews

  • Recommended April 09, 2012 - Love GCA! Besides giving my children the learning tools needed to succeed in life, GCA integrates the subject matter beyond the classroom walls. Putting their knowledge into action with the tools learned creates confidence when introduced to a new situation. I am so thankful for GCA teaching not only knowledge, but also teaching application within a Christian environment. If you are seeking a school that treats each child as their own, then you have found your school, Greenville Classical Academy! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 28, 2012 - GCA provides a wonderful classical education with God in the center of all subjects! My children have attended this school for 3 years now and we LOVE it. The teachers are more like family and give children the personal attention they need to succeed. The principal and the other staff are also wonderful. It really is a hidden gem in the Greenville area. I would encourage any one who is interested in a classical, Christian education for your K4-12th grader to attend one of our many open houses. You may find the dates for those at www.greenvilleclassical.com. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 28, 2012 - We are in our 8th year at GCA, and both of our children love their school and their teachers. We drive about 30 minutes each way to take our children to GCA, because we love this school so much! - Posted by Parent
