Our Identity

Identity

Granville Christian Academy has a rich history as a discipleship school, where students are encouraged to grow in their faith through learning, obeying, loving, and applying the Scriptures. All school staff and leaders are charged to use their gifts and live out their faith in front of their students and to mentor them as Jesus commanded. Teachers are committed to developing ongoing relationships with the students with the motivation to honor Christ. The goal is to move students on a clear path of spiritual growth so they may develop into mature spiritual leaders. In response, students and families are expected to be faithful, teachable, and available.  Evangelism will always be a part of our efforts to reach students who have not committed to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. However, the primary goal of the school is to disciple the students in their journey towards maturity as a whole person – spiritually, academically, and emotionally/socially, and physically.  Academically, Granville Christian Academy strives to provide a rigorous academic course offering and is currently a college preparatory/post-secondary preparatory school with a selection of advanced classes in middle and high school. The goal is to provide inspiring and enriching coursework for all students and to prepare them for college or careers, while recognizing that students are at different proficiency levels. Some accommodations can be made to assist students who struggle. Biblically based academic excellence for all is the goal.  

Mission

The mission of Granville Christian Academy is to partner with Christian families and local churches by creating a Christ-centered nurturing environment with biblically-based academic excellence and character development, resulting in students who are becoming Christ-like and impacting their culture through servant leadership.

Vision

The vision of Granville Christian Academy is preparing leaders for Christ.   

School Verse

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Philosophy

Granville Christian Academy knows that education is a lifelong experience and that informed decision-making comes from the values set forth by godly adult guidance. In conjunction with this is the necessity of a supportive school environment, characterized by mutual respect among administration, staff, students, and families. Students come to know one another and become known by the adults who work with them. Although we have many denominations represented in our student body, we still maintain unity and mutual respect. We recognize that differences related to particular beliefs will arise, but realize that in these instances we are to refer students to their parents and home church for guidance. Granville Christian Academy communicates its philosophy through the curriculum it teaches, the services it provides, the adult role models it offers, the guidelines and expectations it maintains, and the activities it sponsors.
