Students Studying


Thank you for your interest in GCCA!

Are you considering applying?

GCCA is a unique school and the only full-time classical Christian school in our area.  We offer small class-sizes led by expert teachers.  Our school is a good fit for students who are already at (or above) grade-level in reading and math and do not require additional behavioral and/or academic support.  Also, GCCA is a technology-free environment.  Families who are a good fit limit screen-time in their homes and value reading and family time.  Finally, we serve families who agree with our Christian statement of faith and support Christian living and worldview in the home.  If you feel GCCA may be the right place for your family, please click on the tour link below and register for a tour with our Head of School. 

GCCA Provides a Time-Tested Academic Environment

Gulf Coast Classical Academy is Pinellas County's only full-time, Latin-centered, classical, Christian school.

"If we articulate classical education as merely a method and fail to cast the vision of the Christian West as it has manifested itself in our literature, our science, and our history, then we will have replaced one modern mistake with a similar one no less modern."

- Martin Cothran

Director of The Classical Latin School Association

Application Process

Visit the Contact Us page or email for any questions and to

schedule a tour of the school, or visit us at a scheduled open house. 

Submit required documents.

Once all records and recommendations have been received, your child will then be invited to shadow. 

During their visit, they will be assessed for math, reading, and writing readiness.

Admission decision and enrollment meeting will follow.

To receive final acceptance, we require at least one parent or guardian of the child to support enrollment and to be in agreement with the school’s statement of faith.

At Gulf Coast Classical Academy, our statement of faith is the Nicene Creed, one of the most widely accepted expressions of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith.  Gulf Coast Classical Academy teaches and upholds traditional Christian morality, and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God.
