Grace Valley Christian Academy sets open house and campus tour

Celebrating its 15th year, Grace Valley Christian Academy is hosting an open house for prospective students, their parents and interested community members at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 8.

Families can tour the K-9 school, see classes in session, meet with the principal, and get more information about the curriculum, which includes Spanish, physical education and hands-on science courses at all grade levels.

Located on 20 acres at 27173 County Road 98 in West Davis, GVCA began in 1998 with a clear mission: to provide exceptional Christian education at an affordable cost for students in Davis, Dixon, Woodland, Winters and surrounding areas.

GVCA graduates achieve superior marks on standardized tests, routinely scoring in the top 10 percent in all subject areas, including reading, math and science, Principal Sharon Broderick said in a news release.

“Our small class sizes allow us to help all students reach their full potential,” she added.

GVCA was voted best private school in Yolo County in 2012. Its tuition is $4,600 per year, less than half the cost of many area private schools, Broderick said.

More than its academic success, though, the school is proud of its emphasis on Christian character development.

“We are, first and foremost, a Christian school, and our mission is to teach and train students to be successful in all areas of life,” Broderick said.

GVCA combines traditional academic instruction with hands-on application wherever possible.

“We follow the Core Knowledge curriculum and have credentialed teachers in every grade,” Broderick said, “but we also give our students the opportunity to learn from doctors, nurses, engineers and other professionals.”

GVCA alumni have excelled in a wide variety of fields, including medicine, law, engineering, education and business. Last year, two of the 13 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists at Davis High School were GVCA graduates.

Grace Valley Christian Academy is enrolling students at all grade levels for the 2013-14 school year. To RSVP for the open house, call the school office at 530-758-6590. For more information about the school, visit www.gracevalley.org/gvca.
