Value vs. Cost

Providing your child with a Christian education is an investment that pays life long, rich dividends. It is about value, not cost; because it's not expensive, it's priceless.  If God has placed the desire on your heart to give your child this opportunity, rest assured He will find a way.  To that end we do all we can to keep tuition affordable and offer tuition assistance in cases of demonstrated need.  

Please call today 908.835.1399 to schedule a tour with our administrator.  If you're ready to enroll, all the registration materials in .pdf format may be found below.  Simply print out the appropriate forms, complete, and return to our office for prompt consideration.  





Our Curriculum

GSCA employs a carefully considered combination of materials from both secular and Christian publishers to offer our students a course of study that is academically excellent and challenging. To best address the needs of all of our students, we make every effort to offer a variety of learning opportunities through differentiated instruction, understanding that God created each one with His perfect plan for them in mind. We believe that "all things were created by Him and for Him," and that "He holds all things together" (Col. 1:16-17), therefore, biblical principals are integrated into every subject.


Our theme verse for this year, Ephesians 6:7-8 inspired the formation of S.W.A.T. which stands for Serve Wholeheartedly Action Team.  This group, comprised of different students depending on the project, helps out where needed by serving our community. The group, led by Kindergarten teacher Ms. Nancy Dean, is pictured here helping with a church-wide mailing for Trinity United Methodist Church in Hackettstown, NJ. Other projects include a Food Drive for the Faith Discovery Church Food Pantry, plans to help clean and polish a church sanctuary, visits to area nursing homes and more.  Please let us know if you have a project that would benefit from our S.W.A.T.​'s help.





2014 C.A.M.S.A League Champs

Our 2014 Girls' Basketball team took home the league trophy last March after an undefeated season against other Christian school teams. The team is led by our beloved 'Coach Nana' Gano who, at 80 years old, came out of retirement and proved that, even on a walker after losing a leg 8 years ago, she's still got it! Coach Nana is thrilled to share her vast knowledge with our players - and it shows! Way to go girls!
