It is our heartfelt desire to create a program where every student has an opportunity to participate and every student can shine. The GCA Drama Department is truly unique due to the extremely high level of participation across all grade levels of our Middle and High School. We take pride in the fact that nearly everyone in the student body gets involved in our theater productions.

Visual Art
The GCA Visual Art program uses a STEAM approach that incorporates 3D printing, coding, graphic design, digital painting, and animation. Students experience a broad range of traditional visual arts including ceramics, drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as digital mediums.

Elementary students have a Visual Arts class each week with a combination of traditional studio art and the latest art technology.


Upper Academy students may choose from art electives such as Ceramics, Digital Photography, Makerspace, and Illustration. High school students may apply to the GCA Art Honor Guild, an extracurricular student org that provides enrichment opportunities for high school students who demonstrate outstanding scholarship in the visual arts. Exhibition opportunities include the Elementary Spring Art Show and animation screenings at our Upper Academy Talent Show.



Elementary students enjoy a weekly music class and perform during our Christmas Show and K-5 Spring Musicals. Fourth grade students perform in a special recorder concert. Fifth grade students have the option of additional study by joining our school band. Strings instruction (violin or viola) is also offered for some grade levels. The GCA strings program is growing as interest and participation increases. 


Middle and High School Music electives include but are not limited to:


Mixed Choir: Students are encouraged to use their gifts for God’s glory and to praise Him through song. Choir students will build vocal skills, ensemble skills, as well as lasting friendships in the choral classroom. 

Beginning Orchestra and Advanced Strings Ensemble students gain a strong foundation in instrument posture/set-up, ear training, and beginning reading skills through Suzuki-informed pedagogy. Weekly classroom activities
are designed to keep the fun in learning, with carefully sequenced and reinforced skills. Parental support contributes to student success.


Students coming to GCA with prior instrumental study will find continued opportunities for music making in the orchestra setting, whether beginning, intermediate, or advanced. With the  opening of our new Upper Academy 
state-of-the-art performing arts spaces, students will continue to have greater opportunities to grow as orchestra instrumentalists. All ensembles perform in one concert each semester, and students may participate in OMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival.


GCA Students of every level may participate in a week-long Summer Orchestra Camp, typically offered in June. 

Praise BandStudents will develop their musical abilities as they take an active role in leading worship during weekly chapel services.
