Head of School
From the very beginning, Gloria Deo Academy has endeavored to prepare students for secondary studies and to equip them for their life’s calling. In 2005, Joy Davis struggled to find a safe place for her children to grow and learn. Many schools have slowly moved away from Judeo-Christian values and her wish was to create an environment where students felt safe and teachers could unashamedly stand on the authority of the Bible with a rigorous academic curriculum. Mrs. Davis started GDA with 45 students. Since 2005, GDA has expanded to over 500 students and three campuses. Joy is the mother of four children, three of which have graduated from GDA (one is currently enrolled). She is passionate about Christian classical education.
