  • GCA is a day school, but our class structure resembles that of a university, meeting together Mondays, Wednesdays and part of Fridays.
  • Our curriculum integrates theology, history, literature, mathematics, science, aesthetics, logic, rhetoric, and language (Greek and Spanish).
  • Each subject is taught from a decidedly biblical worldview by an expert in the field. We are especially interested in giving Christian families an affordable option by which their children can continue to receive an exceptional, Christian education through the challenging high school years.
