Grace Covenant Academy
Grace Covenant Church makes ministry to young people an important priority. A logical extension of that ministry is Christian education. It is valued as a significant opportunity for discipleship to begin early in life and have the foundation for it to extend into adulthood. As a result, Grace Covenant Academy began in 2001. Located in the Lake Norman area, GCA serves Pre-K - 5th grade families in their quest to provide a Christ-centered education for their children. GCA enjoys membership with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), as well as the Greater Charlotte Association of Christian Schools (GCACS). In the past 8 years, GCA has grown from 15 to over 180 students. This growth is the result of GCA's commitment to provide a place where children develop an eagerness for learning in a dynamic environment. Children are equipped for life when their God-given potential is released. GCA recognizes that a variety of teaching methods and strategies in the classroom setting provide the opportunity to release that potential. Therefore, academic excellence and spiritual formation walk hand-in-hand to provide a comprehensive program where students are challenged to discover their specific gifts and talents in order to fulfill their unique purpose for God's Kingdom. Core subjects in math, language arts, social studies, science, and Bible, complimented by enrichment opportunities in Spanish, physical education, library, music and drama, and technology provide students a multi-faceted look at their world through the eyes of the Lord.
