Gloria Deo Academy operates on a university-style schedule, meaning students attend GDA two or three days each week depending on their grade level.

At all grade levels teachers introduce new concepts to the students that prepare them for school work to be completed at home. On the days at home, parents use detailed guidelines to execute the lessons. 

The Golden and River Stone Campus students in grades K-6 attend school Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (optional) or Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (optional). Preschool students attend Monday, Wednesday, or on Tuesday, Thursday. GDA also offers an optional extra-curricular day club day on Fridays (available to K-6 students). Learn more here. 

Joplin Campus students in grades K-9 attend school Monday, Wednesday and Friday (grades 7-9). 

Once students enter grades 7-12 parent involvement is reduced significantly while students develop skills to help them succeed in college and beyond. All students in grades 7-12 attend school on Fridays. Grades 7-12 are available at the Golden Campus. Grades 7-9 are available at the Joplin Campus.
