Our Story

Our Story

Granville Christian Academy has been educating children in Licking County, Ohio, for over 20 years. In 1997, Cathy Pound, wife to Pastor Jeff Pound of Spring Hills Baptist Church, began homeschooling several middle school students from her church body. By year two, since the demand for private Christian education far exceeded what Cathy expected, she founded Grace Haven Academy. Several years later, the growing school became known as Granville Christian Academy. Then, in 2014, Granville Christian Academy became its own non-profit entity apart from Springs Hills Baptist Church. 

The primary purpose of the school was (and remains to this day) to partner with parents and local Church bodies to develop spiritual leaders for Christ. From the first handful of home-schooled middle school students, to the more than 200 students enrolled today, God has faithfully led students to Granville Christian Academy in preparation for a life-time of servant leadership. Each faculty and staff member, student and family member is part of the story the Lord is authoring through Granville Christian Academy. 

Our Brand

God’s Word is rich with examples of God equipping who He calls. He demonstrates His desire and willingness to use each of his children in unique ways while proving His power. Those who choose to make themselves available for God’s work are His servant leaders who accomplish much for the Kingdom. In Exodus, the account is written of God calling Moses to a life of servant leadership through the flaming bush, which was on fire but not consumed nor burned.Though Moses felt himself not worthy, God provided all he needed to lead God’s chosen people in the pursuit of His plans for them. It was in this passage that God called himself “I AM,” using Moses to foreshadow Christ, the perfect servant leader. For more than 20 years, Granville Christian Academy has had the vision of preparing servant leaders for Christ.The “flaming bush” in our logo allegorically represents this passage in that both the flaming branches and the root represent God’s call to the students at Granville Christian Academy. It is His desire that these students become “deeply rooted” in a faith that will burn brightly throughout their lives. We at GCA have chosen to follow God’s calling and join Him in this mission. It is our hope and desire that students find GCA to be a place where they can grow their faith through mentorship and discipleship; become deeply rooted in it; become bright flames for Christ that never burn out; choose a life of service and servant leadership; feel confident in using the gifts and talents with which they have been blessed; and seek to discover the great “I AM” all the days of their lives.
