WE ARE GCA
The Grace Christian Academy Eagle's Athletic Department exists to support the school’s overall mission by providing a Christ-centered competitive athletic program that develops Christian character, leadership, and a commitment to excellence.
The mission of Eagle Athletics is for our student-athletes to learn the valuable lessons of dedication, loyalty and discipline. Our hope is that these lessons will yield much more than just performance outcomes in their sport, but teach life-building skills including teamwork, camaraderie, respect and diligence. GCA has amassed numerous District, Regional, and State titles since it’s establishment. We’re proud of the hard work and dedication put forth by our teams, and are always the loudest fans in the stands!
Grace Christian Academy offers a variety of athletic opportunities for Secondary students in grades 6th-12th.
Our Elementary students are encouraged to stay active throughout the school week through Physical Education, which they have twice a week. We believe healthy hearts produce healthy minds and strive to provide our students with the best athletic opportunities. Our Elementary students also enjoy recess every day after their lunch time.
