Grace Covenant Academy – Who We Are

We Partner with Parents

Grace Covenant Academy was founded to help families like yours fulfill their calling.  We partner with parents in God’s mission of discipling and educating their children.

At GCA, we provide a gospel-centered environment that encourages parents, and equips children to be life-long learning, college ready, disciples of Jesus Christ!

Our Mission

Grace Covenant Academy exists to equip Christian parents to disciple their children to know God and make Him known, through a distinctly Christian education.

Our University-Model School

In our University-Model, K-5 students attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while grades 6-12 attend on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. On home days, all students complete teacher-designed lessons. Parents don’t need to create lesson plans; teachers handle that and monitor progress. This model allows more family time compared to a five-day school while maintaining a structured environment for student progress.

Our History

Grace is God’s favor to the undeserving – and God has richly displayed his grace to GCA throughout our history. 

Early in 2009, six local homeschooling families were overwhelmed with the demands of life and education.  Consumed with creating curricula, lesson plans, and the constant concern about whether they were achieving their academic goals, these families struggled with how to balance the demands of education and parenting.

They came together to create something new – a school that would combine the important elements of parental mentorship and excellent academic education. Their desire was to serve North Texas families by carrying some of the burden of schooling (freeing parents to major on what they were called to do) and so Grace Covenant Academy was born!

Grace + Covenant + Academy

The name Grace Covenant Academy represents the founding families’ commitment to three things.

  • Grace represents our belief in the life-changing power of the gospel, the primary context and reason for education.  The founding families believed that the grace of Jesus Christ should inform all areas of our lives.
  • Covenant represents our commitment to work together as a community. These families “covenanted together” to build a viable school community.
  • Academy represents our desire for an academically rigorous education that creates college-worthy students.  Their goal from the beginning was to develop clear thinking, articulate students who can represent Christ in a lost world.

Today, our name reminds us of our heritage, and encourages us to proceed in the vision set out by our founding “covenant” families.

  • This school has been a gift to our family. The staff have helped us learn how to take up our responsibility of being the primary educators of our children with wonderful encouragement, feedback, support, and community. Through GCA we get the best of both worlds- the structure of the classroom and the flexibility, the time with other students and their families and the precious time with our own family. We can’t recommend it highly enough!

  • Our family LOVES GCA! It is run by people that truly put the Lord first. They truly have a heart for ALL children! This school has changed our daughter’s life. She has gone from a shy introverted person to a confident happy and outgoing person! Never in a million years did I believe our girl would be playing basketball, running track, and joining yearbook! The change is because of the environment and the way the children are encouraged to really take time to get to know and support one another.
