This is my 4th graders third year at GTCA. He has been challenged academically every year. He enjoys the small classroom environment and the hands on instructions are amazing. It is such a blessing to have Christ in all he does on a daily basis. The teachers are all concerned, loving and certified. The Christmas program was wonderful this year. We also enjoy the Upward sports that are offered. My son has also enjoyed the after school science club this year.
