School Reviews

  • Recommended March 29, 2014 - Guardian Christian Academy is a wonderful Christ-centered school. All teachers in the graded school are Virginia state certified and they are given the freedom to teach children how they learn. Unlike the focus on testing and data we have witnessed in the local public schools, GCA is focused on educating the whole child. Our daughter has blossomed this year and we couldn''t be happier. - Posted by Parent

We are so excited they are adding tenth grade next year, and will be a PreK-12 grade school in three years. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 22, 2014 - I have had two children at GCA for 5 years (K-5th) and I have been very pleased with the education, the teacher attentiveness to the students, and the overall environment. The kids and teachers all care about one another and the Christian values instilled at this age have really helped my children as they have aged. The academic curriculum is challenging without being overwhelming, and social and academic expectations are higher than what we were seeing in the county school. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 28, 2014 - I am extremely pleased with the education my son is receiving at GCA. He is a 3rd grader, and has been attending GCA since preschool. Aside from the nurturing, loving environment faculty and staff, the education is phenomenal. There are only 12 other students in my son''s class, which affords him ample opportunity to ask questions and get a great deal of personalized attention. When I served as a Watchdog for a day at GCA, our decision to enroll my son was confirmed when I saw how they incorporated God''s love into every single subject, in every lesson. I felt incredibly blessed to witness this, particularly at a time when our public school system seems determined to remove God from our classrooms. Another area that I was pleasantly surprised about, was the very reasonable tuition. I would highly recommend GCA to anyone exploring Christian, private school options in the greater Richmond/Chesterfield area. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - I have nothing but great things to say about Guardian Christian Academy. My daughter has been attending GCA since she was 3 years old....she is now 10. The teachers are great....they really care about the kids. My daughter has progress well. She loves GCA just as much as we do. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - Our 11 year old daughter has been attending Guardian Christian Academy since Pre-K and we have been thrilled with how she has grown and learned since then. The teachers are very "hands on" and are very dedicated to each child''s development. GCA gets a "A+" from us. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 22, 2014 - We are so excited to have found Guardian Christian Academy! Not only is the academic environment excellent, the spiritual influence adds to the program. Our children are thriving at GCA. The teachers are outstanding and truly take a vested interest in the children they teach. The administrators welcome comments and feedback. We have always felt welcome when we have entered the doors and our children have expressed how nice it is to be in an environment where they aren''t judged. The biggest plus is knowing our kids are getting a quality education while being taught Christian values. Thanks GCA for being a refreshing change in our children''s education. We look forward to reenrolling for next year! - Posted by Parent
