We now have students with severe NUT allergies. At this time, Grace Christian Academy and Early Childhood is now a NUT FREE CAMPUS.

We are asking everyone to please refrain from packing anything for lunch or snacks that contain or may contain nuts, or traces of nuts of ANY kind. This goes for ALL PEANUTS and TREE NUTS, nut butter, or anything that has been cooked in peanut oil or any nut oil.

This is a severe, life-threatening allergy and even inhaling the aroma that these food items contain can cause an ANAPHYLACTIC reaction. Anaphylactic reactions are extremely serious and are life-threatening! We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause but we want to ensure the safety of all our Grace Christian Academy & Early Childhood students and staff! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the front office any time. Thank you!

Parents' Night Out

Year End Giving Campaign - Success!

THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our End of Year Campaign! It was a success! YOU made a difference not only in helping the school but providing for the students. 

New Extracurricular Activities!!

 
What are these clubs you might ask? The clubs will meet approximately once a week during school and it gives students the opportunity for leadership roles while having fun and learning outside the normal studies. Let's dive in and take a look! 
 
Science Club
 
The Science Club is the place for students who are interested in science to learn about all scopes of science from medicine to chemistry to physics to the environment. We discuss how to use this conceptual basis for applications in the real world with a focus on Agriculture(The Green Thumb Club). Trips are taken to museums, aquariums, and local activities along with a Science Fair. This club will be open to all grade levels. 
 
Reading Buddies/Tutor Buddies
 
The reading buddies program pairs up an older student with a younger student for them to take turns reading to one another. It allows for authentic reading practice and a model of fluent reading among many other benefits!
 
The Tutor Buddies program pairs up an older student with a younger student to help the younger student in needed areas of possible extra work, practice, or present work to be completed. It allows for one on one instruction/help in these areas of need.  
 
Cooking Club
 
The Cooking Club will be made up of older and younger students with the purpose of learning the basic life skill of cooking. They will be using math in learning to measure ingredients, science in how cooking relates to the ingredients used, and social skills in working together to create these cooked items like cookies, etc. This club will be open to all grade levels. 
 
Drama/Theater Club
 
The Drama/Theater Club will have opportunities for those interested students to act out Biblical scenes to others both younger, their peers, and families from time to time as well as other skits and/or small plays. This club will also have speaking opportunities available. This may include during Elementary Chapel times, school-wide gatherings, and with extended families and friends where appropriate. 
 
Bible Club
 
This club will be looking at the Bible with a Christian world perspective in a survey method. This club will be looking at what all was happening surrounding Biblical times and how it impacted what was recorded in the Scripture. They will also look at how we approach our world today from a Christian perspective and how the world impacts our understanding of Scripture. This club will be open to upper-grade levels. 
 
Journalism/Year Book Development
 
This club will endeavor to help in producing our regular Crusader Chronicle and have input in our Yearbook development(pictures, articles, ad solicitation, and layout, etc.). They will also have the opportunity to help in our school’s social media publications. This club will be open to upper-grade levels. 
We are very excited to have these opportunities for our students and maybe asking for some help from you all as well!

We are Ready for School in the Fall!

 
 
Below is a letter from Mr. Keithley, Head of School, detailing our options moving forward offering our students a normal and healthy school year! Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages along with our website for school updates.
 
 
Dear Parents and Community,
 
We understand this year is filled of trying and uncertain times for all of us. We want to reassure you Grace Christian Academy will open for school this Fall on August 24th and we will follow the mandated local, state, and federal safety guidelines. Our classes, starting with Early Childhood (18 months) through High School (18 years), will be kept small with no more than 10 students per class. We will place strict safety protocols including taking temperatures of staff and students daily, appropriately wearing face coverings, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, safe movement in the hallways, redesigning large meetings for safety purposes, and safe drop-off and pick-up procedures.
 
We will offer two models of learning for 2020-2021. First, we will offer a traditional classroom with regular teacher instruction five days a week for all ages. Secondly, we will offer a hybrid learning setting for 5th through 8th grades with reduced on-campus attendance and a reduced rate. As a hybrid homeschool model, in-person instruction will take place on Mondays and families will have access to the teacher online for the rest of the week for support. The student can interact virtually with the teacher during school hours. The nature of our high school program is 100 percent online and can be done from home or at the school depending on your student’s needs.
 
Due to the ever-changing nature of the times, there may be requirements put in place that we are mandated by government entities to close our campus to students. If this were to happen again, our teachers will present instruction virtually online daily and available to students during regular school hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
 
We invite you to contact us if you have an interest or any questions. Our office hours for the summer continuing until August 17th are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and our office phone number is 936-372-0901. You can contact me personally Richard “Bo” Keithley at rkeithley@gcacrusader.com or office@gcacrusader.com. We would be delighted to give you a tour of our school and can set up a time that is convenient for you to do so on any day of the week. We look forward to hearing from you!
 
In His Grace and Peace,
