GDA Student Reading Mission

Uncommon Approach. Exceptional Results.

At Gloria Deo Academy, we take an unconventional approach to education. This has made GDA one of Springfield’s largest and fastest-growing private schools.

Our approach is designed to develop students through classical Christian learning in the knowledge (grammar), understanding (logic), and wisdom (rhetoric) of each subject with increasing sophistication as age, grade, and ability rise.

Building Young Leaders:

But your children are called to more than good grades and educational achievement. As they develop into ethical and wise young adults, they will impact their community for the glory of God.

Space for new students is limited and seats fill up fast. If you want to learn more about GDA, attend our upcoming information meeting and see if we’re right for your family.
