Who We Are

Established in 2001 as a ministry of Grace Covenant Church, Grace Covenant Academy celebrates more than 20 years of excellence in Christian education, serving 3 year-olds through High School. GCA holds an unwavering commitment to providing a thoughtful, academically sound, and biblically-based education for students. While at GCA, students will develop an eagerness and love for learning and God’s Word. 

At GCA, you will experience a thoughtful, excellent educational program with visionary leaders, parent partnership, thriving students, and a pursuit of excellence in a God-honoring environment.

Mission

We equip students for life by releasing their God-given potential. We nurture decision making and problem-solving skills, enabled by the application of God’s Word and excellent academics.

Vision

Our students and staff will live out God’s plans for their lives. They will fulfill His purpose, using their God-given talents and abilities, and the callings He has placed on their lives.

Philosophy

Grace Covenant Academy holds that education is designed to meet the needs of the total child. Our program will help the child grow and develop emotionally, intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually. Our desire is that each child will develop an eagerness and love of learning.

Statements of Faith

God

We believe in one true God that eternally exists in three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God in his birth, his life, his death, his resurrection, and his return.

(Isaiah 7:15, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5, Hebrews 9:27-28)

Holy Spirit

We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit who lives within, guides us to repentance, and enables us to live Godly lives.

(Romans 8:5-6)

Bible

We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God — without error, God-inspired, and true.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Salvation

We believe that salvation is only available by grace, through faith and the renewing work of the Holy Spirit. We believe that salvation offers eternal life in heaven rather than eternal separation from God.

(Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8)

Spiritual Unity

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers, that all believers are members of His body, the church.

(Philippians 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12:27)

Human Nature

We believe that man is created in the image of God but, by voluntary disobedience, fell from perfection—thereby imbuing humanity with sinfulness.

(Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12)

Gender, Marriage and Sexuality

We believe that God wonderfully (Ps. 139:14) and immutable creates each person as male or female from conception until natural death. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Gen. 1:26-28). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, covenant, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25; Mark 10:6-9). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; 7; Heb. 13:4). We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.

We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God (Matt. 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10).

We believe that to preserve the function and integrity of Grace Covenant Academy, and to provide a biblical role model to GCA students and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by Grace Covenant Academy in any capacity, or are students of Grace Covenant Academy, agree to and abide by these Statements on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality (Matt. 5:16; Phil. 2:14-16; 1 Thess. 5:22).
