A MESSAGE FROM OUR HEAD OF SCHOOL
Moses shows us how God views the importance of Christian education when he commands in the Shema that no matter what time of day it is or what they are doing they are to be reminded and focused on God’s Word:
Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
And the Psalmist, writing to God’s people, summarizes the mission of Christian education:
The Christian school, working together with the Christian home and the church, exists to fulfill these scriptural promises. The Christian school longs to introduce its students to the source of all truth. Therefore, the decision for a Christian education is the best choice a family can make!

GBCA AT A GLANCE
Great Bridge Christian Academy has attained full accreditation through the National Association of Private Schools. GBCA is also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International. We are working through the process of becoming fully accredited through the Association of Christian Schools International.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities target all aspects of early childhood development, while emphasizing the love of Jesus Christ.
Great Bridge Christian Academy focuses on the introductory grades, K4-5th, to provide the academic basics for all future learning.
Grades 6-8th are a time of considerable transition and change. As the bridge between childhood and adulthood – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually –there is much at stake.
