Grace Christian Academy has received full
accreditation from both the Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools and the Association of Christian Schools International
for grades K-12. The Academy is the largest Southern Baptist-affiliated

In 1994 God called Grace Baptist
Church to begin a new ministry, a Christian school. Church
members were called out to serve on the first school board,
which was composed of some home school parents, teachers,
and businessmen who had a heart for children. After almost
two years of research and preparation, Grace Christian Academy
opened its doors at the beginning of the 1997-98 school year.
God worked through sixty families and five staff members to
make GCA more than a vision. Over the years, enrollment grew
rapidly to the present day level of around 650 students.
