At GCA we are all about two things, “Jesus and His Word.”
The program of Glades Christian Academy & Preschool is established to provide an educational experience in a warm and friendly atmosphere for infants and children through 8th grade. Recognizing the importance of balanced growth, our staff provides many opportunities for the social, mental, physical, and spiritual development of the child. More specifically, our program is:

• To teach students that God is the creator and sustainer of the universe, and the Lord Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God who came to earth to die for our sins
• To teach students that God has spoken through His infallible word, the Bible, and therefore to teach students how to study, understand, and apply its principles to every part of daily life
• To inspire and motivate students to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, and to commit to live their behavior and treatment of others
• To help students develop the ability to assume responsibility for the tasks they are given
