Our School
Welcome to Grace Christian Academy (GCA) in Falls Church, Virginia.  We are a K4 - 8th grade private, Christian school, located in Fairfax County, just minutes from the District of Columbia. GCA  was established in 1973 and serves a diverse student body. Grace Christian Academy is a part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS)  - one of the largest private school systems in the country.

Grace Christian Academy provides its students with an exceptional academic program, coupled with deep study in God's word.  We offer small class sizes in a caring environment.  Our low faculty to student ratio  - 9:1 - sets our scholars up for success at GCA and beyond. Our mixed-grade classrooms give our faculty the unique opportunity to provide an education based on the individual needs and strengths of each scholar. Our graduates go on to thrive in our local public and private school systems, including Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs.
