Chapel and Worship
All students and faculty attend weekly chapel services, usually held on Wednesday mornings. Chapel services are designed to give students and faculty an opportunity to corporately worship God and learn from His Word through teaching, music, prayer, service, drama, and other spiritual disciplines. Different chapel services occur based on grade level to ensure age-appropriate ministry. Students are given the opportunity to lead in chapel in various capacities throughout the school year. Parents are encouraged and invited to attend chapel.
GCA On Mission – Missions and Service
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. – 1 Chronicles 16:24
GCA On Mission encompasses everything we do to bring the light of the gospel and the love of Jesus to those around us. The goal of GCA on Mission is to love God, serve others, and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. As we proclaim the gospel, we teach our students care and compassion through service projects, local outreach, global missions, and general awareness. GCA on Mission is emphasized in chapel the first Wednesday of every month. This time allows for updates concerning our local and global partners, the collection a GCA on Mission offering, and an opportunity to celebrate. GCA students partner with local and global organizations to accomplish this mission.

EXPECTATIONS OF A WARRIOR
We encourage students to adhere to a code of conduct not only for their own benefit, but for the benefit of others as well. Our aim is to acknowledge and encourage positive behavior and not focus only on the negative in our behavior. For that reason, GCA students are taught and encouraged to follow these core values:
Each person is made in the image of God and it honors God when we treat others with kindness and love.
Everyone that is a part of the GCA community is expected to show respect for others as well as their property and ideas, inside and outside the classroom.
All people are accountable to God and He holds each person responsible for their actions and words. We desire to see students not only take responsibility for themselves, but also look out for others.
Do Your Best
1 Corinthians 10:31
It brings honor and glory to God when students do their best, not only in their academics but also in the way they interact with others.
Students who consistently meet and exceed the expectations of a Warrior may receive our Warrior Award. This award is given throughout the year during All-School chapels.
