A Letter from the President

Dr. Scott Harsh

"As a parent, you know how important the early years of a child’s development are. You may know how formative the middle school years can be. And you may have seen the future begin to take shape in the eyes of a high schooler. At GAC, we use the phrase Be Greater. It’s a promise from us to you, to our students, to our staff, and to our community to actively nurture these young people as they discover and pursue their life’s calling.  

We have built a reputation for excellence at GAC on the belief that every student is unique, made in God’s image. It’s through relentless dedication and innovation that we provide the education and opportunities to honor that belief. We are always researching and implementing educational advancements that make each student’s experience better inside and outside of the classroom. We are dedicated to helping them discover and fuel their dreams and intellectual pursuits with experiences and relationships. This is a place where your future begins.

I’m grateful for this community of educators and families, and honored to follow in the footsteps of our former president, Dr. David Fincher, and the founding president, Jesse Long. My promise to them and to you is to continue their legacies of excellence by answering God’s calling and relying on my passionate faculty, staff, and board of trustees.  I invite you to visit our campus and see what it means to Be Greater."

GAC President 

Our Promise

We believe every student is unique, made in God’s image. 

We provide abundant opportunities for learners of every age to develop their intellect, cultivate their creative spirit, deepen their faith, and nurture their relationships.

Our mission is to help each child grow as Jesus did, in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
GAC students develop the resourcefulness to satisfy curiosity, the ability to recognize the possibility, and the capacity for lifelong learning. They emerge prepared to thrive and make decisions that reflect character, self-confidence, and compassion.

Together, we celebrate the distinctiveness of each individual, of our school community, and our place in humanity.

Give your child the tools to be greater
