The mission and philosophy of education at Greater Things Christian Academy is to engage and educate the whole student: heart, mind, and will. We accomplish this mission by delivering rigorous academics in a differentiated and individualized approach to instruction through a biblical perspective that develops students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

GTCA is located in Burns, Tennessee, and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI). We are currently enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year.
