Grace Christian Academy Hosting Dedication of New High School

Grace Christian Academy Logo

Grace Christian Academy is excited to be hosting an Open House and Dedication of their new high school on Thursday, January 4, at 3:00 pm. The school would like to welcome the community to the event to celebrate the new 9-12 grade building that is located at 3265 Southall Rd, Franklin, TN,37064.

Nine years ago, Grace Christian Academy started as a K-5 school with 65 students on the campus of Grace Chapel in Leiper’s Fork. Under the leadership of Robbie Mason, Tim Fish, Reggie Garner, and the support of Grace Chapel, Grace Christian Academy grew quickly and celebrated its first graduating class in 2016. It currently has over 640 students and offers classes from grades Pre-K-12. During this time, the leadership recognized the growth and began to explore long term plans for an expanded campus that could continue to accommodate the growing student body.

In 2015, an adjoining farm consisting of 35 acres and a 14,000 sq ft house was acquired as the initial step in implementing a new master plan for Grace Christian Academy. The most immediate need was providing a dedicated building for the high school to hold classes, thus freeing up classes for pre-K-8 students on the current campus. Renovations were started by Southland Construction on the primary residence in late 2016 with the purpose of converting it into a cafeteria, 10 classrooms, a science lab and office space. Construction is completed and the current high school students will begin attending classes in the new location starting on January 5, 2018.

The new high school is the first step toward the dream of GCA developing dedicated high and middle school buildings, a Fine Arts complex, an Administration Center, and Athletic Facilities on the new campus. This transition is an exciting step in the continuing journey for Grace Cristian Academy, and we welcome you to come visit us at the Open House on the 4th of January at 3:00 PM.
