When you send your child to GCA, you’re investing in his/her future, which requires a financial commitment, but you’re not in this alone. Approximately $600,000 in financial aid is awarded each year to more than 70% of our students.

We’re here to help you develop a plan to afford GCA. Whether it’s through scholarships or student support teams, we can tell you plenty of miracle stories where God opened the doors by “building a team” around students to help offset the costs of tuition.
