We love this school. The staff is wonderful and so are the teachers. My daughter loves her teachers and enjoys each day. She has learned so much and she's only in kindergarten. She has Spanish, gym, art, and technology. All of these teachers make learning fun. We tried public school and that didn't workout for us. The public schools are to crowded and you have little say in what goes on. I just wish they went up to 12th grade because it's going to be hard to find a middle school and high school that can compare to this one.

Greenwood Christian Academy serves preschoolers - 5th graders, and consistently rates above average in standardized testing. ABeka phonics, Saxon math, Bible, Spanish, Tech, Art, PE & Music round out this rewarding educational experience. GCA celebrated 50 years!

The description is wrong. Greenwood Christian Academy has grades Pre-K, K-5th grade. It is wonderful Christian school. My son is 5 years old and attends kindergarten at GCA and has an amazing teacher. He is enrolled for 1st grade next year at GCA and I am thrilled.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
