Middle School Student Life

GCA Middle School Student Life includes plans and activities that focus on developing spiritual and social growth while strengthening community. Spiritual growth is rooted in a biblically-saturated environment and developed in weekly middle school chapels, student-led worship, and small group fellowships hosted by families. Social growth occurs as students participate in a back-to-school Deer Run retreat, athletics, drama club, choir, quarterly PEP rallies, and field trips.

Our middle school community is strengthened by celebrating adolescence and engaging in our school’s mission to serve others. Structured school days are devoted to serving local communities in our Mini X program and students build deeper relationships as we join Grace Chapel in outreach ministries such as Shoeboxes for Haiti, Room in the Inn, and food drives. GCA’s middle school parents are equipped to cultivate the legacy of Christ’s hope in their middle schooler and to spread that hope along every avenue God provides.
