About/Faculty & Staff

Committed to living out our faith.

Investing in our students

Here at Granville Christian Academy, we see our teachers as one of our most valuable resources. Our teachers are committed servants who love the Lord and have the desire to lead our students to grow in their knowledge and in their love of Christ. Our faculty sees their position at GCA as a divine calling from the Lord and they mentor our students by modeling a Christian lifestyle and cultivating their character both inside and outside the classroom.

A deep passion for Christian education.

We believe in preparing students to become who they are called to be. Our goal is to provide students a clear path toward spiritual growth so they may develop into mature, compassionate spiritual leaders. We do this by living out our own faith, partnering with parents and students, and providing the most tools and resources for students to get the most out of their biblically based education.
