MLB Two Time All-Star, Michael Cuddyer, visits GCA to speak to our Gator Baseball Players!
What an honor for our GCA Baseball Program to be guided and encouraged by fifteen year Major League Baseball Veteran, two time All-Star, and 2013 MLB Batting Champion, Michael Cuddyer.
Cuddyer spoke to our Gator Baseball Players and shared advice on leadership, taking advantage of the off-season, and coming out mentally prepared and focused for another successful spring baseball season.
From all of us at GCA, thank you very much for taking time to come speak into our young men!
Mr. Smallman’s Capstone Math class teamed up with our Second graders to demonstrate how rockets work. Our Capstone Math class is working through a unit on the practical uses for quadratic equations, while Second grade is learning about force and motion in their Science unit.
Our Second graders built several rockets with the help of a Capstone Math student acting as “Technical Consultant.” Using a launch system built with PVC pipe by Science Department Chair, Mr. Smallman, students saw how an empty 2-liter bottle could become a propulsion system, capable of launching their rockets way up in the air, over their heads, onto the roof, and even (for the grand finale), through the football goal posts!
Our students had a blast while learning and the experience confirmed to our Gators what their teachers have been saying all along; learning about Math and Science is FUN!
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!
