Gunnery Road Christian Academy offers a VPK program during the school year as well as in the summer. Your child will be provided a safe and nurturing educational environment. We endeavor to promote the value of the family, the church, and our country. We offer A Christ-centered program supporting the individuality of the child in a fun and caring experience. This early school experience provides students with a good spiritual training as well as a good pre-school experience, which will help to prepare them for their regular school experience.
The VPK program started in 2005 with the signing of House Bill 1-A by governor Jeb Bush. The program is designed to prepare each student for academic success in their future schooling. All children who are both four years old before September 1 and Florida residents qualify for this program.
We use the Bob Jones Press Curriculum. Here is the website link: http://www.bjupress.com/
