About GCA

Graceway Christian Academy is beginning its fifth year. A ministry of Mountain Springs Baptist Church, GCA is occupying the facilities where Temple Baptist Academy was previously located. Dr. John Adams, pastor of Mountain Springs, serves as the superintendent of GCA. He received his Ph. D. in educational administration in 1992, and in preparation for this new ministry, returned to college, earning an additional M. Ed. from Liberty University in 2010. He has over 20 years teaching experience, as well as administrative experience as school principal and Bible college academic dean.

When asked what sets Graceway apart from other Christian schools in the area, Dr. Adams replied, “We hold to the historic doctrines of the Word of God, while incorporating an excellent program of studies as a foundation for quality education.  Such a combination aids in developing a Scriptural worldview for our students.  We work with the students, in conjunction with the parents, grandparents, or guardians, to develop programs to assist our students’ learning needs.  We want to prepare them for now, and for eternity.” He added, “We are one of the few Christian schools that offer tuition that is designed to be affordable for families.” GCA provides generous discounts for families with more than one child, plus additional discounts offered to all active military families, law enforcement, first responders (EMT), as well as to all pastors/full-time associates in churches of like faith.

The mission of Graceway Christian Academy is to provide an exceptional school experience with academic excellence that fosters Christian character and a biblical worldview, complementing the family and the church. Come grow with us at GCA!
