We miss having chapel together at GCA! Although we can't be physically together, we can still be spiritually together. Check out this week's Digital Chapel!
In light of the unprecedented change in our 2019-2020 school year, Grace Christian Academy must find new ways to raise necessary funds for the operation of our school. Over 40% of our tuition-paying students are on scholarship, with GCA covering the tuition, technology, textbooks, field trips, and other expenses. It is our goal to never turn away a family that desires a Christ-centered education, regardless of their financial situation.
Without these funds, it makes it incredibly difficult to fund tuition scholarships, purchase classroom enhancements like new supplies and technology, and maintain our building so that we have the best learning environment possible for our students.
To help with this need, GCA will be participating in the world-wide Giving Tuesday Now on Tuesday, May 5, and asking those that are able to consider donating to GCA. Donations can be made through our GoFundMe page. Please share our campaign and encourage your friends and family to support GCA during this time!
If you’re not using Scrip, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to save on your students’ education expenses! Make your everyday purchases using Scrip gift cards and fundraise for GCA. You won't be spending extra time, energy or money!
Through Scrip, you can order gift cards for all the places you normally shop. For each gift card you purchase, a rebate is split between GCA and your students’ 2020-2021 GCA expenses.
For example, if you purchase a $100 Roundy’s gift card through Scrip, a 4% rebate is applied. You can use the $100 gift card to shop like you normally would. The 4% rebate gets split between GCA and your child’s 2020-2021 GCA expenses, so you earn $2.00 and GCA earns $2.00! If you did this every week, you would earn $104 for your child’s 2020-2021 expenses! With Scrip, it all adds up! One GCA family received a $600 tuition credit a few years ago just by using Scrip gift cards on purchases they already planned to make!
Scrip dollars raised can go to more than just tuition! Your Scrip purchases can also help fund expenses like gym uniforms, aftercare, milk and hot lunch.
Here’s how you place your order: Browse hundreds of gift cards on the Scrip website and order a digital card online - ready to use instantly! To set up an account, email email@example.com.
We pray you use the Scrip program to save money and support GCA! If you have questions about the Scrip program, call the GCA office at 414-327-4200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Watch Pastor Rich Andrews and Mrs. Hummitzsch talk about encouraging each other, staying safe and healthy and academic reminders over coffee. Tuesday was supposed to be Doughnuts with Dad, but we can still virtually celebrate and connect as a community! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with photos of your family sharing a meal, doing homework, playing games or more this week! We'll share photos that we receive on Facebook!
Dear GCA Families:
Given Governor Evers’ order today banning gatherings over 50 people, we will no longer be holding classes on Tuesday, March 17. We have sent students home with schoolwork and assignments for the coming weeks, as appropriate, and will be in touch in the coming days with digital / online learning opportunities as well.
This is an ever-changing situation, and we are doing our best to protect our students and staff as we adhere to the evolving federal, state and local guidelines. We appreciate your patience and thank you for your prayers.
Raising Up a Standard,
We will have school on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17 and then begin the state-mandated closure. Read the rest of Mrs. Hummitzsch's letter below!
On Friday, March 6, we will be hosting our annual Spaghetti Social from 5-7 p.m. in the GCA Gymnasium. Tickets can be purchased in the office until Friday, February 28.
We look forward to sharing full plates and fellowship with our fellow Grace Christian Academy friends and family!

No doubt you have high expectations for your children; we do as well! We teach with a Christian worldview and Christian standards of behavior and high academic achievement is a goal for all our students.
This year, we have two types of events for new families to learn about Grace Christian Academy. During our Open Houses, families can tour the school, meet teachers, and review the curriculum. Our Come See Us in Action days are an opportunity for children and their parents to come for some, or all, of the day to witness a normal school day at GCA! No appointment necessary.
We invite new families to attend any of the following events:
