The Mission of Glasgow Christian Academy is to assist parents in educating students intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually in a Christ-centered environment and equipping students with a Christian worldview, thereby empowering them to engage the culture for Jesus Christ.
The purpose of this non-denominational Christian school shall be to provide a creative, loving academic environment for students to grow socially, emotionally, physically, academically, and spiritually through individual and group learning experiences under the guidance and nurture of carefully chosen Christian administrators, teachers, and staff under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It shall be the purpose of the Glasgow Christian Academy to encourage all students to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to emphasize the value of the eternal soul, the worth of the individual, the love of God for man, and the kinship of all people as taught in the Holy scriptures while providing students with the opportunity for achieving academic excellence.
We are committed to excellence in education. Our curriculum choices are proven effective nationwide, and our Terra-Nova achievement scores show our students and teachers are successful in the classrooms. Our students score at and above national averages in all content areas.
With the highest ACT average of senior classes in the area, our seniors are afforded great opportunities at both public and private post-secondary institutions.
We have a highly qualified faculty who have worked diligently toward accreditation. We were accredited by ACSI in July of 2008, and our students can receive KEES supplemental money upon graduation.
GCA’s tuition is markedly lower than most private schools of similar size and qualification. Even more important is the fact that Christian education is a great investment in your child providing him/her a premier education with a solid Biblical worldview.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“You have to send your children to Glasgow Christian Academy,” is what my mother told me when my children started getting to the age for preschool. I thought she was crazy because I grew up in public school and I was just fine. But then I had to get a part-time job. I started subbing at the county schools from preschool all the way up to high school. Man, had it changed since I was in school. I also subbed at GCA. The difference was astounding. Yes, my child would get an education from the public schools, but the attitude of the environment, as a whole, at GCA is something that is hard to sum up in one word.
Our child attends GCA, because of the school’s strong biblical foundation and the challenging curriculum that pushes her to strive for excellence. We also appreciate the smaller classroom size that encourages a one-on-one one interaction with the teachers. We feel that this builds relationships that go beyond the classroom.
