Why Give to the Academy?

Why Give to the Academy?

Tuition and fees cover only about 78% of what it actually costs to educate a student here—leaving an unfunded gap of about 22% for every student. Tuition does not cover program enhancements or facility improvements—it just helps keep our school running. We do not receive any government funding to operate the school.

This difference between tuition and actual cost is made up through the giving of those who truly value the life-changing impact of Greater Houlton Christian Academy. Generosity and sacrifice have been a tradition at GHCA since its founding. Although the school has grown and changed over the years, the generosity of our school family and our local community has been a constant for which we are entirely grateful.


So why give to the Academy?

  • You are making it possible for area Christian families to choose an academically challenging program for their children which reinforces—not contradicts—the biblical values of their homes and churches.
  • You are partnering with the Christian home, church, and school to evangelize and disciple the minds and hearts of the next generation.
  • You are equipping children and youth with the kind of intellectual and spiritual foundation necessary for success in the 21st Century.
  • This kind of school can only exist if it receives the generous and sacrifical support of our extended school family and the local community.
  • The sacrificial giving of our families and friends in the past laid the foundation for what our current students enjoy; now it is our turn.
  • The graduates of this school are going to make a real impact on their world, and we can be a part of that by our giving.

Ultimately, the most compelling reason to give to GHCA is that every gift, regardless of the amount, is an investment in our future generation.
