A Message from our Principal
Welcome to Grace Christian Academy! My name is Iraina Balmer and I am delighted to be leading the students and faculty at GCA into academic greatness. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a beautiful tradition of education. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 24 years, and have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from Kindergarten through and including college. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to GCA and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with the teachers and staff, I work hard to continue the legacy of success established by building and maintaining strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We focus on character education initiatives, the use of data results to drive instruction, learning more about leading a life with Christ, and providing consistent implementation of our curriculum in a meticulous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students’ achievement.
We are eager and excited to continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors- teachers, students and parents- are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. Please feel free to call or email me throughout the year.
I look forward to working with you as a team to help your child here at Grace Christian Academy meet their goals and have a successful school year!
