As one of Georgia's largest Christian, co-educational, college preparatory schools, Greater Atlanta Christian School prepares students for individualized success. Exceptional academics, athletics, arts, small classes, and talented faculty help students become critical thinkers, and responsible members of a global community.
GAC is a beautiful campus with 81 attractive, green and walkable acres, yet the exceptional part of this campus is in the hearts of the people who choose to be here. They will become your family and the school your second home.
Being a part of GAC is a blessing you'll never regret as a student. GAC graduates, like other graduates, talk of nostalgia, and the making of memories. Yet, more often they reiterate the relationships that helped make them who they are and the experiences of mission trips and extracurricular opportunities that gave them insight, direction and molded their future.

Teachers and parents share the commitment to understand the social and emotional development of students and provide a nurturing environment where each child can develop a healthy self-concept and become a happy, productive Christian citizen. Learning at GAC teaches students to relate the principles of Christ in every academic discipline and extracurricular activity.
Your child will be prepared. Each will leave his or her own unique imprint on the world. As our graduates head for Harvard, United States Military Academy, or a school in the SEC, they exit with the tools to make decisions about God’s plan for their life.

Day in the Life: Junior High
Everyone is actively learning, engaging, and challenging one another - all within 10 miles of downtown Atlanta. It’s a partnership between parents, students, and faculty to create a safe and challenging environment that encourages students to become successful adults.
Our students are not only successful in terms of academic accomplishments, but they are also successful in finding out who they are and what they want to become. At GAC, students find and develop their gifts through academics and enrichment opportunities – and they learn to see the needs of others through missions and service.
Once the school day is over, students have access to numerous enrichment activities all on the same campus. Other life changing "outside of the school day” opportunities include mission trips and service projects.
Students begin thinking beyond themselves, and serving others as young as 3 years old. By Junior High, students are traveling the country to help others. When they enter Senior High, they serve others around the world.
Campus life isn’t just about the students. Entire families are strengthened in this one-of-a kind community environment where prayer, praise, and worship are daily privileges.
Experience the GAC community through videos and pictures.
From the Bible Studies each week to socializing with my children's friends both old and new; the sense of community here leaves our family energized and revitalized, reminding us that GAC is a great place for us all.

We believe God, being the Creator of all things, formed man in His own image. Just as God’s nature is creative, mankind has been molded with an innate desire to explore, express, create and construct as a means for understanding the world in which we live. GAC believes it is important for students to be well-rounded. While some may excel at academics or athletics, many excel in Fine Arts. Whether a student thrives being on stage or enjoys marching at halftime with the band, there is something for them at GAC.
We offer programs during the school day as well as enrichment opportunities after school in the arts. During the school day, students of all ages are encouraged to participate in band, drama, orchestra, choir, dance, or visual arts. After school, there are numerous opportunities in the School of Ballet and School of Music. We have extremely qualified and accomplished faculty members and private instructors who can’t wait to work with your child and help them develop their skills and talents.

Spartan athletics has a long history of top teams and athletes. GAC offers a wide variety of sports for boys and girls at all school levels, during each season of the school year. Our highly qualified coaches teach the fundamentals of their sport, they encourage strong competition, and they work with each player to help them excel. But, most importantly, Spartan coaches love the Lord and they emphasize fairness, respect, and sportsmanship in the journey.

Your time, talent, and financial contributions support our unique mission.

All are made possible through you.
