Our campus-wide Eagle Expectations are to Be Safe,Responsible and Respectful. We need your help to enforce those Responsible Expectations especially in the following areas:
Get to school on-time. School starts at 8:05 am. When you are tardy, you are missing valuable instructional time and disrupting the daily routine of the classroom.
Lunch: Bring your lunch to school or order the school lunch. Deliveries should be for unexpected and occasional issues–not on a regular basis. Absolutely no delivery companies will be accepted.
Dress code: Please follow the school appropriate Uniform dress code, including outerwear and shoes guidelines. Visit our school website for more information.
GCA students enjoy chapel every Thursday and, as always, parents are invited to attend Chapel services. Elementary Chapel is at 9:15 am and Secondary Chapel is at 11:15 am.
Yesterday’s Freedom Day in secondary school was truly amazing. Praying for lifelong impact and freedom for our students. Thank you to all who volunteered, prayed and prepared for this day.
There was an error on our academic calendar. For some reason April 19th and 22nd were marked as student holidays. This is incorrect. April 19th and April 22nd are normal school days! We apologize for any inconvenience. Here is the link to the correct calendar.

W. Bush), Rae Bryant from the Houston Genealogical Society, Doug Rask of NASA, speakers from the Houston Holocaust Museum, and Bob Whenert, a World War II veteran.

Do you have outgrown, gently used GCA uniforms or spirit wear that you don’t know what to do with?
Consider donating those items to GCA. We will be collecting the gently used pants, shorts, skirts, shirts, jackets, and sweaters. All collected items will then be available during a Resale Day at discount prices to parents before school starts next year. All funds collected from the resale will go to the Parent Teacher Committee for use with student activities.
Washed and folded items may be dropped off in the front office. For any inquiries or additional information, please contact Ms. Felix at email@example.com or Ms. White at firstname.lastname@example.org
