Secondary Program

Secondary Program

Our secondary program is designed to provide students with challenging opportunities to grow in mind, soul, and body as they prepare for lives as adults. One indication of program quality is our dual accreditation with both the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Association of Christian Schools International. In addition to a focus on students’ intellectual development, we seek to promote their spiritual and moral growth through opportunities such as retreats, chapels, discipleship groups, and Christian service.


Junior High Program (Grades 7-8)

The junior high years are a time of major growth and development for students, and our caring, experienced teachers help nurture and guide students through this exciting—and challenging!—time. Students mature at different rates and benefit from our small class sizes. Core subjects taught include language arts, mathematics, life science, earth science, U. S. history, world history, and Bible. Other courses offered include study and research skills, physical education, and computer.


High School Program (Grades 9-12)

Our goal is to develop in students the core academic and relational skills and knowledge they will need for success beyond high school, whether at institutions of higher learning or in careers; over 90% of our graduates go on to higher education. Our committed teachers use a variety of instructional techniques to guide students in developing the core skills of observation, collaboration, communication, analysis, and evaluation. Students leave the Academy well-prepared for the next challenges they will face.


Extracurricular Activities

Students have a number of extracurricular options in the areas of athletics, fine arts, and service to help round out their education while at GHCA. Our school is a member of the Maine Principals Association (MPA) and the Aroostook League and, therefore, a strong interscholastic sports program. GHCA has an active Student Council and a chapter of the National Honor Society.
