We are Collegedale Academy

Who We Are

It’s clear our focus is education, but our mission is to educate and help the students that attend GCSS find a personal relationship with Jesus. Additionally, it’s our goal to give students experiences of how to work together, serve others, and assist in their communities. We believe students are our mission field, and with their parents, we make every effort to help all the students reach their fullest potentials academically, socially and spiritually.
