What curriculum do you use at GLCA?
We use a variety of curriculum at GLCA. We carefully choose our curriculum and textbooks to best meet the needs of our students while still matching our desire to teach all classes from a Christian perspective. Some of the programs/textbooks we use include Ignitia, Abeka, Bob Jones, and McGraw Hill/Glencoe.
Do you offer after-care or before-care?
Please contact school with questions about before or after-care.
Do you offer tutoring?
Yes. Please contact the school if you are interested in after-school tutoring.
Do you offer special education at GLCA?
We are unable to offer special education at GLCA at this time. Our flexible and individualized approach allows us to meet the needs of most children, but we are unable to meet the needs of children with moderate to severe learning and/or behavior difficulties. We have a working relationship with the Edwardsville Public School District to assist us with out students who have unique learning issues.
