What is the GDA banquet?
It is a chance to come together as a school family and celebrate God’s blessing, bring focus to the mission and purpose of our school, share our vision for the future of GDA and raise funds for Phase 2 of our capital campaign. It is a time of fellowship, celebration and unites families for the eternal purpose of developing ethical and wise individuals who will impact their community for the glory of God.
Why is my participation critical?
As part of the GDA family your participation brings unity and helps further develop students to become strong Christian leaders who will impact their community for God’s glory. Your participation is vital to the long-term growth, stability and stewardship of what God has given our school family.
How does my donation help?
When you give to the All In His Time campaign, you are directly investing in improving the quality of education GDA can provide to its students. No matter the size, your gift will make a difference, directly impacting future generations for the glory of God. Since GDA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, every dollar is tax-deductible and will go directly toward school improvement.
What is the GDA family saying?
“GDA has been a safe-haven for our family. They have, and continue, to take our kiddo’s needs into account and work closely with us to create long-term growth, reach goals, and foster a love of learning and wonder in our kids.”
“Years from now I know I’ll see GDA as the best decision I ever made for my kids. They were doing good, but at GDA they have flourished!”
“Two of my kids are fairly shy. They stay fairly quiet around other people, even when engaged. After a few years at GDA, I’ve noticed them feel more comfortable around adults and they do so much better communicating in public!”

In the fall of 2019, GDA begin silent phase of the All in His Time campaign. It was started to provide funds for the purchase and remodel of the Golden Campus. Because of the covid pandemic, the board paused the campaign. The Together AgainBanquet will mark a “soft opening” of the campaign focusing on a pressing need.
What is the pressing need?adavis2021-09-30T20:58:01-05:00
GDA has consistently experienced a 20% yearly growth rate. This is a blessing because it allows us to grow programs such as athletics and other extracurricular activities as well as positively impacting our community by developing more strong Christian leaders. We are simply out of room. In order to accommodate the current students going into the upper grades from all campuses, we need to add classrooms at the Golden building. Since most of our tuition goes to pay teachers & administration, support in the way of donations is vital to the long-term growth of Gloria Deo Academy.
