International Students

The GCA International Program is designed to impact 9th-12th grade international student life on and off campus. Our main goal is to spread our mission, vision, and values to provide our students the best Academic, Athletic, and Arts experience with a biblical worldview. International students are encouraged to apply from anywhere around the world. Dedicated international housing will be available through host families at Grace Christian Academy or Grace Baptist Church and in our independent housing complex adjacent to our school campus. The International Program will offer academic rigor, athletic competition, and immersion into American culture. It will also serve to expand their cultural understanding and experiences of current GCA students.
