My child was behind in school and lacking self confidence. We transferred them to greenwood Christian academy and we were amazed at the transformation! They now have straight A's and friendships that will last forever. As for the new administration.... I have personally worked with them and have been nothing but pleased. My child thanks me daily for sending her to GCA and I would highly recommend it! Changes are happening at GCA but only for the better! Take a tour you will be so impressed!

I cannot say enough about GCA!! We have been there for 3 years now and couldn't be happier! All of the teachers are so amazing and care for the kids like they are their own. We are well on our way to becoming ACSI Certified, all due to the wonderful new administration that we have now. Please check this school out before you make any decisions!!

Was once a great school, and the teachers are wonderful. However, the new administration (2014) is questionable in ethics and appropriateness. School governance and oversight is non-existent. Be very careful before getting involved in this school.

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.
