This year (2016-2017) makes my kids second year attending Grace Christian Academy. I can't express enough how disappointed I am in this school. The teachers seem to be very unqualified and faculty seem to be impersonal and often rude. The school doesn't provide much of anything, no lunch, transportation, tutoring or help with understanding the daily curriculum that is being sent home. They penalize student with "Fines" (which really comes down on the parents) for the smallest things and send letters home about dress code, however when my daughter was behind in her studies no phone call, email or letter was sent home. When my 8 year old child left his lunch at home, they provided a HALF of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which cost me two dollars. My son told the staff he was still hungry and their response was "well, you should've brought a lunch". For this to be a "Christian" school, they sure are missing or seemed to have lost the Christian values. Again, I could go on and on with how disappointed I am with this school.
I went to GCA up to my freshman year and I liked my elementary experience but I found myself asking questions and getting frustrated at the school entering the 8th grade. They are very strict on policies and their teaching methods are repetitive and the same as other teachers: read, notes, homework, test, repeat. This school should be available to only elementary instead of middle/high school. My advice is if you consider sending your kid here and they are in elementary school, this is a fine school to go to. However, if your child is in middle school or older, I would STRONGLY reconsider.
Grace Christian Academy is a great school. What makes GCA a great school is the team of committed teachers and staff. These people are not just there to work. They have a passion for the children and their education. GCA is also a Christian school that is not just Christian in name but in deeds. It is a pleasure to have the teachers pray with you and for you and your child. My daugher has received a great education and has met many wonderful friends there as well. Consequently, I have met great people, with similar interest and faith. Go Crusaders!!!
I really enjoy Grace Christian Academy we are returning here from public school and really regret leaving the first time. My children are learning so much educationally and most importantly about God. I would strongly recommend Grace Christian Academy.
This school is exactly what our family needs. Our son was having trouble in public school, and we have always believed that he would do extremely well in a more personalized, caring educational environment. He has been performing to his highest potential at GCA, and more importantly, has been generally happier and more comfortable in his school setting. We are grateful to God and to the staff of GCA for all of the help with our son's education and growth during these highly formative years of his life.
Grace Christian Academy is a good school where the teachers and leadership show that they care about the students' physical, spiritual, and academic progress. While my children are new this year, I feel that they have integrated very well into the school.
I have a child in both 3k and 5k. Everyone here is so loving and kind! I love to hear my kids come home and sing Christian songs, say Bible verses, and talk about how much they love God. It really is a breath of fresh air!
I am pleased to have my kids at Grace Christian Academy. The teachers really care about their students and help them to grow spiritually as well as academically. I have seen firsthand difficult situations dealt with in a respectful manner. Our principal handles issues quickly and carefully. She knows all of the students and families by name. Since parents are spending money to provide the quality education being offered to them, I find that parental involvement is there.
My children have been attending Grace Christian Academy in Milwaukee County for 5 years and my wife and I have had nothing but wonderful things to say about this school . The teachers love Jesus and the children in their classes. The curriculum is very challenging and pushes the children rather than catering to the lowest common denominator as in the public school system. The sports, music, National Honor Society and other programs allow for a fun a friendly environment. We love our school!
