This is my daughter's 3rd year at GCA. She is in the 1st grade. The teachers and the staff are excellent. It is a great spiritual environment and family atmosphere. She has learned so much about God and how to be a good person. She is excelling at this school thanks to wonderful teachers and staff.

This school focuses on $$, the principal needs some child psychology classes and the homework is ridiculous. My child went here for 3 yrs and I'm disappointed in myself for staying that long.

After viewing other schools, we chose to go with Grace Christian Academy and have never regretted it: Truly Christ-centered, with excellent education. They are offering more and more extracurricular activities all the time. Teachers really care and work toward the nurturing and growth of every child.

Amazing my son was writing his name in pre school and in the first month of kindergarten he was reading his first books. Love the atmosphere doing what is right is cool. It feels like home. Love the uniform dress code it is very easy you can buy it at any wallmart or kmart. Turtlenecks and blue pants or collared shirts like a golf shirt blue or white. Easy and no fuss about clothes in the morning

The schools great but needs to get not as picky with uniforms. Homework is way to much.

Both of my children graduated from GCA and now excel in their public high school because of the solid foundation of academics and of Biblical truths that GCA gave them. The accelerated academic program at GCA has enabled them to handle Honors and AP classes at the high school with ease. And the Christ-centered world view that my children now have because of the three-fold (home, church, and Grace Christian Academy) teaching of the Word of God allows them to stand up for their beliefs in a very natural, normal way. Their peers and teachers hold both of them in high regard. I recommend Grace Christian Academy to parents who want to equip the whole child-mind, body and soul!

My son has attended Grace Christian Academy since pre-k he is in the 6 grade now and we love the school. It is a family oriented environment and parents feel comfortable approaching teachers and faculty. The school has transitioned well the new technology. I would recommend Grace to everyone.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
