My daughter absolutely loves coming here. She is excited about learning every day. She has been here since kindergarten. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The building always looks well organised and clean. We feel good about sending her to Greenwood Christian Academy.

One of our GCA grandparents recently posted this at our school website: My granddaughter attended Kindergarten at Greenwood and it was amazing to watch her come out of her shell. At her pre-k programs she was so scared of being in front of people she would literally cry. At the kindergarten program she sang solo twice and did awesome! But the biggest change I saw was recently....we had special prayer time at our church for those who had an illness and she was the first one to lay hands on the persons being prayed for! I truly believe that GCA had a big hand in helping her be bold! We are looking forward to first grade!!!

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
