Herbert Guice Christian Academy was founded in 1997 by Dr. Herbert Guice and members of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church.
Establishment of the Academy is another step in furthering the strong advocacy that Pastor Guice has shown toward providing educational opportunities for students of all ages.
Herbert Guice Christian Academy seeks to educate and train students in a safe, creative, and intellectually stimulating Christian environment that fosters the growth of self esteem and responsibility in each child.
The mission statement, purpose, and school motto was established by our founder, Dr. Herbert Guice, CEO and Board of Directors, and members of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in 1996.
It reflects the core values of the Academy and its stakeholders, and is supported by the board, administration, teaching staff, parents and students.

Guice is an outstanding private religious school that offers an excellent environment for learning. My grandson attended Guice Academy from Pre K to 6th Grade. He continues to excell in school because of the excellent start he had at Guice Academy.
