Curriculum: Accelerated Christian Education (ACE)
Ages: 4 to 18
The Guangzhou Grace Academy (GGA) was founded in 1994 as an alternative Christian-curriculum school and was awarded Model School status by the ACE School of Tomorrow. Although students with non-Christian backgrounds are permitted, the school makes it clear that the curriculum followed is imbued with strong Christian values, and both students and their families are encouraged to embrace these.
New students are admitted between the ages of four and 11. After this age, anyone wishing to join the school must be transferring from a school with similar values and curriculum. Proficiency in English is required.
GGA recently relocated to a brand new, custom-built facility in Panyu. Some extra-curricular activities are offered, including sports and music.
What the school says
“Guangzhou Grace Academy was established to assist families in the exciting and awesome task of preparing children for life – both this life and the life to come. Jesus Christ says, 'I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly.' With Christ’s ideal of selfless love as our guide, we seek to inspire each child to strive toward his/her unique and God-given calling.”
The school follows the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) School of Tomorrow curriculum, which is taught at thousands of schools around the world. Senior students going on to university have a number of graduation options, including a dual-enrolment programme that can be validated by the Commission for International and Trans-regional Accreditation (CITA) and the State of Texas in the US.
The school is in Panyu, about 9 miles (15km) south of central Guangzhou and a short walk from the Nanpu Station on Metro Line 2.
