Our Mission Statement:
Gloria Dei Academy is a ministry of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. Our ministry is to bring people into the family of believers. Our purpose is to provide a Christ-centered education based on the Inspired Word of God, the authority for faith and life.

Gloria Dei Lutheran Church operates this school for the education of our congregation's children and for reaching the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Families without a church home are invited to attend and join Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and participate in the life of our congregation.
Our Philosophy of Education:
Gloria Dei Lutheran Academy offers a comprehensive and balanced curriculum, with all subjects being taught from a distinctly Christian perspective. This challenging curriculum is designed with flexibility to meet the needs of each student as it encourages exploration, critical thinking, problem solving, and sound study skills. The goal is to develop and maximize each student's unique talents and abilities so that they will be equipped to serve as valuable members of society. Student's individual interests are encouraged and they are given the opportunity to grow as scholars, musicians, artists, athletes, and leaders - all to God's glory.
Our teachers and staff are committed to assist parents to whom is given the responsibility for the Christian upbringing of their children. By bringing Christian values into the academic program, we will not only educate the mind but also the heart. Faith, wisdom, confidence, perseverence, joy, and strength of character are all inner qualitites that will be developed in our students. We believe that all children are endowed with special gifts by their Creator. It is our responsibility to assist and motivate the child to recognize and develop those gifts.
