   For the past 12 years, I've had the privilege of serving GSCA, alongside our outstanding faculty, in providing Christ-centered excellence in education. We endeavor to exceed the requirements and expectations of public schools while guiding students to develop a biblical worldview, and it has been a beautiful thing to see God use these efforts to bear fruit in His children time after time.


   When talking with new families considering GSCA I ask them to consider what might happen in the life of their child if the teachings of home, church, and school agreed.  In these days when so many secular distractions compete for the hearts of our children, this is an important consideration.  


  Christian education is an investment that will pay dividends for a lifetime.  Seen in that light it’s not expensive– it’s priceless!  Let me encourage you with this: When God puts the desire for Christian education on a parent's heart, I’ve never seen Him fail to provide the means.  Let's talk about it further in person - please call today to schedule a tour.
