Seniors in Mrs. Hampton’s English 12 class read to our Preschool students earlier this week as part of a unit examining the importance of accurate and contextual translation of literature and text. While studying the work of John Wycliffe and William Tyndale on the early translations of the English language Bible, Mrs. Hampton challenged her students to take 1 Corinthians 13, the Ten Commandments, and Psalm 23 and “translate” them into language understandable to our Preschoolers.
One of the many reasons an education at Greenbrier Christian Academy is extraordinary is the opportunity our students have to build relationships and gain confidence by interacting across grade levels and divisions. The GCA "family" environment is seen in our hallways through high-fives, at our "whole school" extracurricular events, and in the many opportunities for curriculum collaboration.
Greenbrier Christian Academy’s Quarterback and Semper Fidelis All-American, Luke Bussel has been selected to play in the annual Blue-Grey All American Bowl at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s, on January 6th, 2018 at 7:30pm. The game will be aired live on ESPN3.
Luke was selected from over 6,750 players who competed at regional combines or were nominated by members of the Blue-Grey staff.
Regarding being selected, Luke said, “I am very grateful and praise God for the opportunity my Lord and Savior has given me."
October 8th & 9th, 2017 : Greenbrier Christian Academy Junior Jordan Taylor competed with other students from the Hampton Roads area in the 55th Annual Ocean View Art Show hosted by The Chesapeake Bay Art Association. Jordan won a Merit award and Jerry's Artarama gift certificate for her oil painting on canvas titled "Dreaming."
The Annual Ocean View Art Show is one of the oldest art shows on the east coast and still all artist run. Congratulations, Jordan!

On September 25th, 2017, Collegiate Academy welcomed back Algernon Tennyson as Guest Chapel Speaker for the 2017 Collegiate Spiritual Emphasis week!
Spiritual Emphasis Week is a special week for our Collegiate students to grow deeper in their faith and peer relationships. The week opened with a Chapel message Monday morning from Mr. Tennyson, followed by fun team-building activities for students in the afternoon. Throughout the week, students will hear special messages, have the opportunity to pray with others across the country during the annual See You at the Pole event Wednesday morning, and will be treated to an off-campus worship concert just for our Gators on Thursday.
Please pray for our students as we seek to shine God’s love and light on our 7th – 12th graders during this special week.
