Grace Christian Academy

Mrs. Jody McGlothlin, Founder & Principal 

GCA was founded by Jody McGlothlin, a certified school teacher that graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelor of Education Degree. McGlothlin soon developed a homeschooling program to fit the lives of local cutting horse participants and their families. After proving the school program successful for nearly seven years, she decided to expand and offer this great program to others in the area that would be interested in participating in a “small town private school environment” with the flexibility of homeschooling.

McGlothlin, at first, visualized the idea of Grace Christian Academy with a private preschool and kindergarten, as well as an accredited homeschool program for first grade and higher. God truly worked in the success of GCA and grew it from the small seed McGlothlin visioned to a fully accredited private school for Pre-K through 12th grade, with two campuses. Through hard work, determination, and perseverance GCA was founded and is now open to serve others as they look for a high quality education with Christian standards. Jody states, “I personally love what I do, and strive to make a difference in the lives of children and their education each day.” McGlothlin has stepped out of the classroom, but continues to oversee the quality education presented by her fellow teachers that have joined her team at GCA.
