Partnering with parents OF K4 - 12 STUDENTS to train their children to engage culture and be virtuous, godly leaders.
Our purpose at GCA is to teach students to love what is lovely, to think and act biblically, and to pursue academic excellence in joyful submission to our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Twenty-one girls came together as a team to learn the sport of volleyball in the fall of 2016. They did some fundraising to attend a volleyball camp in the summer to improve their skills and teamwork. They look forward to continuous improvement.
Part of classical education is having the student re-enforce what they are learning in their history classes by using their hands to do art projects.
Students compliment their history class studies by going on field trips. Students from SC History and American History went to the South Carolina State House in Columbia to learn how our state government works.
Our students are encouraged to serve in the local community. Students went to Whispering Pines Stables in Mauldin to do yard work and other manual labors tasks.
"We love GCA! Greenville Classical Academy has been such a blessing to our family. We had been homeschooling for four years, so we were not sure how the transition would go--but it has been truly great. We are thrilled to be here, and we could not feel more confident in our children's education. We are so thankful to be a part of such a loving, grace-filled community that strives to do what is best for each child--not just academically but spiritually as well. And of course, our children LOVE it!"

"There is so much to love about the K4 program at GCA. The teacher is wonderful, and the children learn so much, providing them a wonderful foundation for K5. The activities are fun and purposeful, giving the opportunity for meaningful memories for parents and their child. The staff's love for the children is evident on a daily basis through a sweet and serving spirit."

"We have been overjoyed by our daughter's experience in K4 at GCA. Mrs. Godwin is so sweet and patient and she's giving her students the foundation needed to love learning for years to come. We are blown away with how much our daughter is learning and retaining, even with only being in the two-day a week program. We now know that she will be well equipped to excel in kindergarten, and we are confident that we made the right choice when enrolling her in K4 at GCA!

GCA’s Upper School has proven to be a true blessing to our whole family. We have seen our children challenged academically and spiritually by the Christ-centered curriculum at GCA and also encouraged by creative projects, invested teachers, and sweet peers. We love the University Model schedule, which allows students to be fully immersed in school yet also maintain their presence with the rest of the family. Another great blessing has been the knowledge, availability and helpfulness of the teachers, who respond quickly to emails and take time to help students with problems. The entire GCA staff have true servant’s hearts, which has made our GCA experience a delightful one.

This is our second school year with GCA, specifically with Janet Godwin in K4. When we joined the GCA “family” in 2016, it was the very first time our daughter had ever been away from home. Like any parents entering this new season, we were nervous, excited and blown away that this day had gotten here so fast! Janet has been so welcoming, friendly, and understanding throughout the entire time. She is a seasoned educator and just phenomenal with the kids! Both our daughter and now our son have learned so much from her teaching. Our son started this year struggling through his ABC’s and can now isolate the sounds of each letter and read small sentences! We are just so so grateful for Janet and for the entire GCA community! They have been such a blessing to our family!
