WHO WE ARE
Gethsemane Christian Academy is a Christian preschool and kindergarten in Tempe, AZ. We believe that a good spiritual foundation is essential to building a happy, intelligent and successful individual especially in this ever changing world. All subjects become more meaningful to our preschoolers as they discover God’s greatness through his creation and continued presence in our universe. We are also excited to announce we are offering a Spanish immersion class for our 3-4 year olds!
Gethsemane puts the “it takes a village to raise a child” model into practice. From early on, children and their families get to know all of the staff at the school offering a true community feeling. Small class sizes give teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to understand and meet your child’s individual needs.
We believe that a developmentally appropriate curriculum which adheres to the AZ state standards should be taught in a hands on, child friendly manner. Research shows that rote learning and lots of pencil paper tasks is not the best way to teach preschoolers. As we teach all subjects, we strive to make the content relevant, real and really fun! Areas of study include mathematics, literacy, science, fine and gross motor skills, music and art.
Throughout their educational experience at GCA our young minds and souls are nourished with the word of the Lord. Children attend Chapel weekly and all grade levels participate in Christian studies.
The study of God’s words, which emphasizes kindness towards friends and respect for staff, along with a rigorous developmentally appropriate program is our purpose.
