Branch Christian Academy We are a 501 (c) (3) organization in Cabarrus County that seeks to educate our families at home and in a community together, leading and guiding them in the way they should go. We desire to do life together and support each other in this journey. We all have something to offer and we see the value of everyone in the co-op. We are one body with many parts, all essential to the co-op family. We desire to not only teach our own children, but to disciple the children and lead them toward their own individual callings in life. We will do whatever we can to support each child. In addition to the children, we want to create an environment that supports the whole family. We pick from a variety of different curriculum publishers, using only the best of the best! We use Notgrass, The Good and the Beautiful, Apologia, Lifepac, to name a few. We also offer life skills, p.e., art, drama and 4-H.

Greyfriars Classical Tutorials is a ministry of Greyfriars Classical Academy to homeschooling families with students from kindergarten through 8th grade. GCT-Grammar includes K through grade 5 and meets on Tuesdays, while GCT-Logic includes grades 6-8 and meets on Thursdays. Both groups are under the direction of the Board of Greyfriars Classical Academy, a three-day-a-week high school.

At Greyfriars, we believe we are working with the God-given strengths of children by emphasizing memory work in the grammar stage, discussion and problem-solving in the logic stage, and presenting ideas wisely and well in the rhetoric stage. The program provides weekly classroom instruction by tutors who love what they teach and do so from a Christian worldview and with a classical methodology. GCT meets for 30 weeks during the school year and is ideal for families who desire the benefits and blessings of educating both in community as well as in the home school.  Families of GCT find guidance, structure, curriculum help, encouragement and accountability in a nurturing community.
