Living on Mission: Growing in Wisdom & Stature
Living on Mission: Growing in Wisdom & Stature

The mission of Greater Atlanta Christian School is deeply rooted in the biblical verse from Luke 2:52, which reads, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” This verse serves as the guiding principle for the school’s educational philosophy and reflects its commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals who excel not only academically but also in their personal development and relationships.

The verse itself, from the New Testament, speaks to the growth and development of Jesus as a young boy. It underscores four essential aspects of a person’s life: wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with man.

Wisdom: This dimension emphasizes the importance of intellectual and academic growth. GAC designs intentional academic experiences through a Christian lens that keeps in mind the distinct purpose of each student.

Stature: Stature refers to physical development and well-being. The school recognizes the significance of a healthy body and promotes physical fitness, nutrition, and overall well-being as essential components of a student’s growth.

Favor with God: This aspect highlights the importance of spiritual development. Our community strives to meet each student wherever they are on their faith journey and inspire them toward Christ.

Favor with Man: The verse also emphasizes the significance of building positive relationships with others. The school values emotional and social development as essential for students to thrive. Relationships are of the utmost importance, and we are humbled to walk alongside families through life.
