Gethsemane Christian Academy and Lapetite Child Care Center
We believe in education for the whole person: Mind, Body & Spirit!
Welcome G. C. A. family to our 2020-2021 school year. Thank you for allowing us to share of forty years of successful stories with you and our community.
We realize that the gift of your child/children is a precious gift from God. We believe this training should begin in early childhood: therefore, we have provided a planned curriculum and state of the art technology using Promethean boards and laptop computers in each classroom for our preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten, and elementary school. It is the philosophy of our staff to help children develop to the fullest capacity through careful guided study. The goal is not to reform, but to train students, of every ability, in the highest principles of Christian Leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.
Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year.

Statement of Belief
It is the philosophy of our school staff to help children develop to the fullest capacity through careful guided study. We seek to help students to reach their fullest capabilities in all subjects. We work with each child accepting him/her as a unique individual that must be developed through prayerful guidance of the mind, body and spirit.
This Christian school is an extension of the Christian home in training young people in a Christian environment for time and eternity. The school staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6 to train up a child in the way he should go. Teaching is training. Training for life must include training for eternity. We believe this training should begin in early childhood: therefore, we have provided a planned curriculum for the pre-school, kindergarten, and elementary school.
It is important that it is realized that attendance at this school is a privilege and not a right. The goal of this school is not to reform, but to train Christian youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian Leadership, self- discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship. This school stands without apology for the old-time Gospel and the highest standards of morality and Christian behavior.
Gethsemane Christian Academy accepts applications for admission to any grade regardless of race, sex, creed or national origin. There is no discrimination in administering educational policies or in awarding scholarship and loan programs, or in the athletic and extra-curricular programs.
