Our History

Grace Christian Academy (GCA) was founded in 2018 by a group of families from evangelical churches in Owensboro, Kentucky. The need for a Christ-centered high school led to the creation of GCA, which opened its doors to students in the fall of 2020. Despite facing challenges due to the pandemic, GCA is dedicated to providing a quality education that equips students with a strong Christian worldview.

At GCA, we view education as discipleship, and believe that the worldview of those shaping our children is of utmost importance. Our mission is to glorify God by providing a solid Christian education that prepares students for success in the world. Balancing the cost of education with affordability for families is a top priority, and the generous support of individuals who share our mission has been crucial in the success of our school.

The school's board of directors, consisting of parents, professionals, and leaders, professionals, and community leaders, has made

significant contributions to the launch of GCA. They have purchased a 40-acre plot of land for our future campus, and Yellow Creek Baptist Church has graciously provided us with classroom space until we complete our building campaign.

GCA is an independent, non-profit, tax-exempt corporation with a non-denominational and evangelical Christian perspective. Our Statement of Faith outlines the Christian convictions that are fundamental and essential to the school. The Head of School is responsible for day-to-day operations, with the board of directors governing the overall direction of the school.


Statement of Faith

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant, authoritative and sufficient Word of God
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
(Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the church and in His personal return in power and glory
(Colossians 1:13-20; 1 Peter 3:22).

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and that this salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, repentance toward God, and not as a result of good works
(Romans 3:23-26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and perform good works
(Romans 8:9-11; Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:12-14).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and those that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation
(John 5:24-25, 28-29).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences
(John 17:20-23; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:28).
