We are pleased that you and your child are interested in our Early Education Program (Childcare / Pre-school / Before and After Care) at Good News Christian Academy (GNCA).
Our mission at GNCA is to provide a God - centered program that will meet the academic, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual needs of your child. Good News Christian Academy is an out-reach ministry of Good News Free Will Baptist Church. This God-given ministry’s goal is to lead children to Jesus Christ and train them in the Bible, Christian character, language and traditional subject matter while assisting in strengthening the home and church. Each staff member is a Christian, active in the church, with the ability to communicate well with children. Our staff will give your child the love and affection he or she needs for healthy development. We desire to be the next best thing to your home!
Our school is a ministry of Good News Free Will Baptist Church designed to help families train their children for Christian service. Our approach is a complementary one. God has established the family as the principal entity to train children, with the church serving as a second platform of spiritual training and leadership development for the family. The Christian school provides a third source of godly influence. This arrangement is truly successful only if the direction being set by all three is in agreement.
For this reason, it is vital that parents agree with the doctrine and philosophy of Good News Free Will Baptist Church, which are held wholly by Good News Christian Academy, as well. A child, placed in an environment in which the family follows a direction contrary to that of the church and the school, is a child given to much confusion and strife within his own thoughts and actions. It should be understood that our primary goal is to produce and develop servant leaders for Christ. Students are led to develop the “mind of Christ” (Philippians 2:5) in their lives. A key reason for the existence of Christian education is to establish an environment that will develop a sound biblical worldview.
Good News Christian Academy has developed a program to minister to the complete student.
This is accomplished through four areas of emphasis:
The first and strongest emphasis is the spiritual growth of the child and family.
The clear teaching of the Bible is the best foundation for learning. The Bible is not only taught as a class, but also permeates every other subject. We endeavor to introduce each child to Christ and to direct children and families to thoroughly know and live the Bible.
The second emphasis is on academics.
The school uses a traditional, time-tested, rigorous Christian curriculum. We provide a superior academic climate and promote academic excellence to best prepare students to fulfill God’s will for their lives.
The third and fourth areas of emphasis are proper social and physical development.
The school uses singing, handbells, and seasonal programs to teach our students to exalt Christ with their God-given talents, abilities, and skills. Our physical education and athletic programs are continually expanding to meet the needs of our students.
