Welcome New Staff!
We are thrilled to announce our newest staff hires: Mr. David Callison for PE/Athletic Director and Miss Amanda Garry for fourth grade.
Mr. Callison has years of athletic experience, with over 30 years participating in sports and 15 years coaching. He is passionate about helping kids grow and reach their potential in sports, in life, and in their spiritual walk. Mr. Callison, his wife, and their three children recently moved back to Arizona from California. His kids, in 6th grade, 4th grade, and 3rd grade, now all attend Grace Christian Academy. We have loved welcoming the entire Callison family to GCA!
Miss Garry received her master's degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University, and she comes to us with years of experience teaching in the Kyrene School District. In her free time, Miss Garry loves to hike and spend time with her spunky Dutch Shepherd. She is passionate about education and cannot wait to share her love for the Lord and learning with her fourth grade students.

ENCORE starts September 11!
Encore is an after school theatre arts program that meets once a week. There are two productions a year, a Christmas musical in December and a spring musical in May. We have produced Annie, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and Mary Poppins.

Encore is directed by Mrs. Kay Randolph, a music educator in the valley for the past 46 years and we are thrilled to be returning to Grace Academy!

We will work for one hour each week on singing, dancing and acting. We give out tons of part and solos so that everyone has lots to do. Try it out this fall and see how much fun we have.
