School Notes:

  • Our main desire is to instill in young people a deep love for Jesus and His Word which equips them to “make disciples” in response to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). We seek to give God our best, not only spiritually, but with academic excellence.  We offer a diploma program which provides encouragement and accountability through portfolio reviews with experienced homeschooling educators, grades, transcripts, competitive sports teams, and a diploma upon graduation.  Enrollment in the diploma program is not required to enroll in classes.  The well-rounded GCA experience includes weekly core subject and extra-curricular classes, mercy ministry projects, social activities, a yearbook, student council, school newspaper, honor society, spirit days, field trips, an annual Student Showcase, and much more!
