Campus life at GAC is thoughtfully designed to balance active faith, academic rigor, and a deep commitment to caring for one another. Across this vibrant community, our students grow in stature and confidence. Students participate in activities and events that help them feel connected to one another, to their parents, to their teachers, and to God.

A spirit of growth infuses everything we do. From our youngest learners to our high school graduates, Spartans grow through service to one another and the world.

Mission trips, service-learning projects, Bible studies, and other activities build tenacity, empathy, and faith. Hands-on learning opportunities happen inside the classroom and out, expanding curiosity, new ideas, and intellect. And by serving and worshiping together, students strengthen their place in this loving community of believers.

Discover the possibilities that await your student.

A Look at Campus Life


From dress up days to special pep rallies to the Friday night lights, Homecoming Week is a favorite for students and faculty.

Spiritual Retreats

Middle School and High School students start each school year with a Spiritual Retreat. These open the door for real relationships and an ever-growing connection with the Lord.


Our beloved student section Redzone brings the Spartan spirit to home games.

Services Projects

Spartans come together regularly to serve the local community, from mentoring students and helping in the classroom at a local elementary school to performing at the Winship Cancer Institute to delivering food to local extended-stay motels.

Parent Speaker Series

Being a parent is the hardest job there is, so we have created a faith-infused speaker series to help guide parents and support them in raising their children to be exceptional, faith-filled adults.

Spaces Students & Families Thrive

Fincher Student-Family Center

Known as the "family room" for the GAC community and located in the center of campus, the beautiful 31,000 square foot facility is one of the most active buildings on campus. The main floor includes the Grandparent Commons, GAC Spartan Store, Wista Worthen Meeting Room, and the Admissions Office. The President’s Office is located on the second floor as well as several classrooms. The building is named for the school’s second president, Dr. David L. Fincher.

Strickland Plaza

Strickland Plaza is nestled between the Middle and High School buildings and Liles Media Center and serves as the main outdoor gathering space for our students. Named after the Strickland family, this space adjoins with the Cross Tower which stands at the heart of campus and is a daily reminder of our purpose and to whom we belong. The Cross Tower includes an area for worship and baptisms. Located beside the Cross Tower, this versatile outdoor venue includes a raised platform and gathering space for up to 200 students and teachers for educational discussions, student performances, special speakers, and concerts.

The Long Forum serves as home court for the Spartan Basketball and Spartan Volleyball teams. The 80,000 sq. ft. state-of-the art, multi-purpose venue can seat up to 3,200 guests for chapels, concerts, athletic and many other special events. The Athletic Office is located on the main floor. The Jesse & Marilyn Long Forum was opened in 2009 and was named in honor of GAC founder and Chancellor, Jesse Long and his wife Marilyn.
