GCA Announces Strategic Improvements for
New Academic Year
Grace Christian Academy's Headmaster
Charlie Strickland has announced three strategic improvements for this school
year: a new preschool director, all-day preschool for K3, and tuition discounts
for large families.
Kim Adams, who holds a master’s degree in Education with certification in Early
Childhood, is GCA’s new preschool director. Adams
has been trained in Lindamood Bell Learning strategies, which are research-validated
programs that have improved reading, spelling, comprehension, and math for all
ages of individuals.
“Lindamood‐Bell reading strategies help increase phonemic awareness and reading comprehension skills so that students can learn
basic reading skills and develop a love of learning and reading,” said
Strickland. “We will also continue to use A Beka Christian curriculum, along with hands‐on learning activities.” Strickland also announced that an all-day program, three or five days a week,
will be added to GCA's K3 program. Parents can choose the full-day program or
the half-day program, three or five days a week. The school's K4 program also
offers a half-day or full-day program, five days a week, and the K5 program is
offered five full days a week.
"All of GCA's K3-K5 teachers are highly qualified in their areas," Strickland
said. GCA's K3 teachers are Joan Morris and Glennie Cox, who have many years’
experience and knowledge in working with preschoolers. Kim Adams and Mallory
Glover teach K4, and Megan McRae teaches K5.
In addition, GCA now offers large family tuition discounts of 10% savings for
the second sibling and 50% savings for the third sibling. Larger families pay
no additional tuition beginning with their fourth child.
"Your children are a precious gift from God, and we feel very blessed to
have the opportunity to teach them," Strickland said. “Our goal is for
students to be able to grow spiritually, socially, and academically throughout
the year as we implement both exciting and challenging activities. We want
students to enjoy learning, but most importantly, to have a Christ-centered
