On behalf of the Greenwood Christian Academy (GCA) faculty, staff, and board, I would like to welcome everyone back to the 2016-2017 school year. The first day for students is August 10th. We are looking forward to serving over 600 students in grades K through 12. We can’t wait to get this year started. Our school is experiencing increased enrollment, a revitalization of leadership, and we’ve added new programs that will open up a world of opportunities to our students.
In late June, the board of directors approved several new staff members including Angelique Randall. Mrs. Randall will be assuming the role of the middle/high school principal. Angelique comes to us with 14 years of experience in education and administration. We are excited to have her on staff and look forward to the talents, skills, and new ideas she brings with her.
GCA is the best choice for parents who want a first class education built on the foundation of God’s word. We are fully accredited by the state of Indiana and offer the Core 40 and Academic Honors Diploma. We also provide dual credit courses through Vincennes University and Grace College. Our graduates have consistently maintained a 100% high school graduation and college acceptance rate.
At the elementary level we emphasize reading and mathematics. Our students have a 100% IREAD pass rate every year. We also have computer programming and keyboarding skills for upper elementary and middle school students.
GCA has thriving extracurricular programs as well. We are members of the IHSAA and offer an extensive variety of athletic teams and activities for our students. Our drama productions are stellar, and many of our students have gone on to pursue performance majors in college.
At the core of all our activities is Christ. We are motivated and led by God’s Word. Our staff starts each morning with prayer, and our teachers lead daily devotions with their students. Our faculty challenges the students to meet their highest academic potential while modeling Christ’s love, discipline, and servant leadership. We are an interdenominational Christian school with a student body representing over 80 local churches. We know it is our mission to provide a college preparatory education with a Christian worldview and prepare our students to succeed academically and spiritually.
