Glenmore Christian Academy is a JK to Grade 9 faith-based private school located on a state-of-the-art, 10-acre campus in the southwest of Calgary. Our mission is to Teach Truth, Inspire Excellence, Experience Christ, and Serve Through Love. Christian principals are integrated into the day through morning devotions, chapels and other opportunities to serve. With many families and staff who are also alumni, GCA is a school that nurtures the educational development and Christian discipleship of its students while working in partnership with parents.

GCA was founded by First Alliance Church in 1980, offering its students a strong, innovative accredited education within an interdenominational Christian tradition. The 900+ students agree to uphold GCA’s faith-based perspective, yet are representative of society, coming from culturally diverse backgrounds.

Students at GCA achieve the expectation for excellence on provincial achievement tests as well as during daily activities. Holding strongly to the philosophy of providing expert instruction in all subject areas, exposure to specialist teachers begins in kindergarten. Alongside core subjects, students have the opportunity to specialize in Band, Drama, Art, Outdoor Education or TDI (Technology, Design and Innovation). A second-language course is required in Junior High, with the choice of either Spanish or French. From this solid foundation, students are invited to participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including Intramurals, Choristers and Handbells, Concert Band, and theatre productions. Our GCA Royals’ athletic teams regularly achieve excellence in basketball, volleyball, badminton and track & field.

The bright, spacious building provides for innovative teaching and learning. The school also includes two double gymnasiums, a 535-seat theatre, a learning commons, an award-winning media resource centre, a full-service cafeteria and our After/Before Care Centre. Tours are by appointment on Fridays at 1:00 pm. Please visit our website for more information.
