High school with a higher objective
At Grace Covenant Academy, we take the high school years seriously. Our University-Model structure helps our students prepare for the rigors of college, but we are more concerned with their heart to know and follow the Lord. So we take the time to really invest in our high school students to show them what it means to live a life committed to God's glory.
Our students build community with each other and with the faculty through an annual Back to School Retreat in September, the Christian Leadership Institute for juniors and seniors in the fall, the Winter Formal in February, outdoor Adventure Club trips and school-wide events such as the GCA 5K and Fun Run. We encourage our high school students to enroll in competitive speech and debate to sharpen their critical thinking skills and to learn to communicate winsomely and compellingly. Most GCA high school students play basketball and run track, because the objective here is to enjoy the game and learn teamwork, as well as get exercise.
On class days, students learn through discussions, town halls, debates, lectures, and projects that acclimate students to college life. When students are not on campus, are expected to study and complete home work, just like college students.
