Seniors in Mrs. Hampton’s English 12 class read to our Preschool students earlier this week as part of a unit examining the importance of accurate and contextual translation of literature and text. While studying the work of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale on the early translations of the English language Bible, Mrs. Hampton challenged her students to take 1 Corinthians 13, the Ten Commandments, and Psalm 23 and “translate” them into language understandable to our Preschoolers.
One of the many reasons an education at Greenbrier Christian Academy is extraordinary is the opportunity our students have to build relationships and gain confidence by interacting across grade levels and divisions. The GCA "family" environment is seen in our hallways through high-fives, at our "whole school" extracurricular events, and in the many opportunities for curriculum collaboration.

GCA Family and Friends, On behalf of the Administration and Aber family, thank you for your incredible generosity today! By 4:00 Friday afternoon our lobby was filled with water bottles, diapers, sheets, towels, etc. Mr. Aber needed to rent a truck instead of a U-Haul trailer in order to load everything that was brought in. Many of you also donated to his Go Fund Me account to help make this trip possible and brought in gift cards and other donations. When the GCA family shows up, they show up in a big way! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done!
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' - Matthew 25:40
The 2017/18 school year has officially kicked-off! There was a lot of excitement in the air today as our school hallways were once again filled with our awesome Gator students!
In our Beginnings Academy (Preschool 2.5 -Kindergarten), students toted in new nap mats and backpacks half their size as more than one teary eyed parent watched their little one start their first day of school ever. In Foundations Academy (1st-3rd), students joined their teachers at drop off, being welcomed by hugs and smiles from classmates. In Bridge Academy (4th – 6th), students entered the new world of second story classrooms and for 6th graders, lockers! In our Collegiate Academy (7th-12th), students started the day in the gym, being introduced to the Collegiate Academy Faculty and Staff before hearing from our Founder and Superintendent, Dr. White. Collegiate students then signed their Honor Code Pledge, received their schedules, and were on their way!
As we begin another year, we are thankful for the many students who spend their school days with us and for the parents and families who invest in their children at GCA. Thank you for your partnership and prayers! Go Gators!
We are so proud to announce one of our Kindergartners is joining fellow Gators John (3rd grade) and Madison (4th grade) in the category of "State Handwriting Winner" for their respective grade levels in the National Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Competition!
Every year schools across the nation review handwriting samples from their students and submit one per grade level for the National Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Competition. Three of our Gators were selected as Virginia State Winners in their respective grade levels! This year marks the 26th national handwriting contest and saw over 275,000 students participating.
