- 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!

Every private school parent is encouraged to help the school in whatever way he can. Here are some things you can do to make a contribution to your school.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
