The Academy is an educational community of Gainesville, in which faculty, families and clergy work together to provide students with a strong spiritual and academic foundation used intentionally and strategically to help students learn, to deepen their critical thinking skills, and to open doors to new educational opportunities.
The Academy attracts students of diverse talents and experiences. We encourage our students to embrace KNOWLEDGE and to CREATE in an environment that embraces GOSPEL VALUES. We meet the challenging academic needs of all students while developing a sense of understanding and the courage to act on their beliefs in a moral and intellectual way.
We have created a happy, productive, and engaging environment by offering diverse opportunities that allow our students to develop their unique strengths within an academically challenging curriculum.
One of the key strategies that we attribute to our success is the building of relationships with our students. In 2017-2018 our Guidance Department became a site host for the University of Florida University of Florida Department of Counseling which greatly benefits our school by having interns on campus working under our Guidance Counselor’s tutelage. In Spring 2020, we implemented the Friendzy SEL curriculum which teaches the five-core competencies of social-emotional learning. In 2022, QPCA implemented Responsibility-Centered Discipline. Our goal is to empower students to take ownership for their own behaviors in which students will understand the benefits of forming good behavior habits and learn emotional self-control.
