I have attended GCA for nearly 11 years now, and it's truly a part of me. Now in tenth grade, I joined GCA in its first year, and have been able to watch it grow and expand as I grow in stature in knowledge. Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." At the heart of it, this is what I feel to be the true goal of GCA--to prepare their students for college, the workforce, and, most importantly, life everlasting. Greenville Classical has taught me many things over the years, through both the people and material. They have taught me to think critically, be diligent, and serve my Lord, with plenty of inside jokes, fun events, and memorable experiences along the way. I thank God (and I''m sure my parents do as well) for placing me at Greenville Classical Academy. I will never forget the times I had there, the lessons learned, or the friends I made along the way.

Love GCA! Besides giving my children the learning tools needed to succeed in life, GCA integrates the subject matter beyond the classroom walls. Putting their knowledge into action with the tools learned creates confidence when introduced to a new situation. I am so thankful for GCA teaching not only knowledge, but also teaching application within a Christian environment. If you are seeking a school that treats each child as their own, then you have found your school, Greenville Classical Academy!

GCA provides a wonderful classical education with God in the center of all subjects! My children have attended this school for 3 years now and we LOVE it. The teachers are more like family and give children the personal attention they need to succeed. The principal and the other staff are also wonderful. It really is a hidden gem in the Greenville area. I would encourage any one who is interested in a classical, Christian education for your K4-12th grader to attend one of our many open houses. You may find the dates for those at www.greenvilleclassical.com.
