Our journey with GCA began over three years ago when God began planting seeds in our hearts that would lead us to this school. We became aware of Grace Christian Academy when speaking with another parent whose children attended the school. She was so enthusiastic about how wonderful GCA was and clearly loved it. At the time, my husband and I were not even aware that we would be looking for a new school in the near future, but God knew. Over the next several months, it became clear to us that we needed a new plan for our children’s schooling. As we weighed our options, I remembered the conversation I had had with that mom months before. We were anxious as we contemplated changing schools. What if our kids didn’t like it or felt like they didn’t fit in? What if we were making the completely wrong decision for them? We prayed for open doors and clear answers from the Lord.
As always, God was faithful. As we continued to seek the Lord’s will, our family came to GCA for a day of shadowing at the school. As both my husband and I saw the teachers working with their students and including our children as well, our doubts began to fade away. With each new interaction we had at GCA, whether it was placement testing or discussing the needs of our children, we felt more and more confident that Grace Christian Academy was the school we were looking for.
I cannot say enough about GCA. The teachers there have taken our kids under their wings, making them feel welcome, special, and accepted. Since then, our children have grown by leaps and bounds in confidence, friendships, and academics. But most importantly, their faith in Christ has been nurtured in every class, with every teacher, every day. In addition to our children being well loved, we have found a community of amazing, supportive parents who have also welcomed us with open arms.
My husband and I both agree that we could never put a price on the quality of education and discipleship our children have received at Grace Christian Academy. In short, we came to GCA looking for a new school for our children but what we found was a family that embraced all of us just as we were.
