Greater Lisbon Christian Academy
"For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6
Located just north of the beautiful city of Lisbon in Ramada, Greater Lisbon Christian Academy has an amazing view of the greater Lisbon area. All of our teaching and curriculum are in English. We focus on the whole student by teaching Bible along with all other academic subjects. Weekly chapels help reinforce our core values and beliefs. Our school is known for having a wonderful family atmosphere.
We are a traditional American Christian School primarily for the children of missionaries operated by the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism. GLCA is a member school of Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
Our Purpose Statement
The Greater Lisbon Christian Academy exists to assist missionary parents by providing for their children a college-preparatory education in an atmosphere that demonstrates and encourages Christian character and growth in preparation for a life of ministry.
Our History: The Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (ABWE) began ministering in Portugal in 1980. Greater Lisbon Christian Academy was established during the early years of ABWE's ministry in this country. The school has been providing a quality education for missionary children for more than 30 years. Knowing that their children are being adequately prepared academically has given missionaries more time to dedicate to their ministries here in Portugal.
