Electives & Activities

We believe in educating the body, mind, and spirit by providing a comprehensive academic curriculum, which involves integrating Biblical principles, creative arts, physical education, technology and foreign language. By integrating all aspects of our curriculum, we encourage critical thinking and promote cultural awareness.

Art: Mrs. Love

Art:

We strive to teach all students the principles and elements of art and design as well as art history through the use of various mediums.

The Preschool and Elementary School art program provides many opportunities to create and to enrich each student's life while allowing for discovery as well. The students will be challenged to principles and elements of design through a variety of projects following calendar-year themes. While being encouraged as well as challenged to perform to the best of their God-given abilities.

 

In Middle School, students grow to be more independent in producing artworks. They begin to mature in their abilities to observe, experience, and express themselves in effective and innovative ways and to be challenged to use visual arts in praising our Lord. They begin using two and three-dimensional media which includes drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics.

 

High School elective art courses allow students to continue to build upon their understanding of the artistic process as well as develop an appreciation of aesthetic qualities. Students can express themselves in a creative and imaginative way through drawing, painting, and two and three-dimensional design.

The technology department here at Grace has three computer labs to service the needs of our student body. The first computer lab services K5 through 8th grade. The second lab is dedicated to our high school students and lastly our third lab is devoted to our online learning center. The curriculum starts off with familiarizing our younger students with the basic responsibilities and functions of computers/laptops and gradually progresses until students are capable of using programs and software designed to help them in a learning environment.

Elementary & Middle School Tech: Mr. Wilkinson

Mr. Wilkinson has been teaching here at Grace since 2016. He is currently the Technology teacher for elementary and middle school. 

 

Life Verse:  Jeremiah 29:11

 

GCA Technology uses the technology foundation standards for students which are divided into six broad categories. Standards within each category are introduced, reinforced, and mastered by students. 

 

Students demonstrate a sound understanding of the nature and operation of technology systems and are proficient in the use of technology. GCA students understand the ethical, cultural, and societal issues related to technology as well as practicing responsible use of technology systems, information, and software. Students also develop positive attitudes toward technology uses that support lifelong learning, collaboration, personal pursuits, and productivity. Students from K5 through 12 grade use technology tools to enhance learning, increase productivity, and promote creativity. Through classes like broadcasting and technology students use productivity tools to collaborate in constructing technology enhanced models, prepare publications, and produce other creative works. Students use telecommunications to collaborate, publish, and interact with peers, experts, and other audiences in addition to the use of a variety of media and formats to communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences. In conjunction with core subject teachers, Mr. Wilkinson teaches students to use technology research tools to locate, evaluate, and collect information from a variety of sources and use technology tools to process data and report results. Students evaluate and select new information resources and technological innovations based on the appropriateness for specific tasks. Lastly, students use technology resources for solving problems and making informed decisions and employ technology in the development of strategies for solving problems in the real world.

Online Learning: Mrs. Hamilton

Grace offers on-line learning through Ignitia.  Ignitia is a faith-based learning program offered through Alpha Omega Publications.  With Ignitia we are able to help high school students recover credits needed for graduation.  We are also able to assist students  that may struggle with a specific course in the classroom. Students that are ready to move ahead may also utilize Ignitia.  Grace offers a homeschool program that also uses Ignitia.  This year we were able to offer a computer coding program through Ignitia as well as several Career exploration courses.  Students are able to work at school with an in-class facilitator that is available for course assistance.  They can also access the work at home as well.
