A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is perhaps one of the most popular stories of the Christmas season. Dickens published his novella in the late fall of 1843. Meant as a quick means to make a little money, it turned out to be arguably his most popular piece of fiction.

Over the years there have many adaptations for the stage and screen, both musical and a straight play. Marrying fidelity to Dickens' words with open, simple staging and costuming, McDonough's script is fresh and highly performable. A Christmas Carol has been one of the favorite presentations on Christmas programs for more than a century. Now, Jerome McDonough's adaptation offers an exciting and lively style.

Glendale Academy Drama Department is proud to present this holiday classic. We invite you to be a part of our performance.

November 8, 10, 15, & 17 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Principal's Message

The first two weeks of the school year have gone by like a whirlwind. As a new principal I was overjoyed to discover GAA has a wonderful faculty focused on starting the year with a united vision of educational excellence with Christian values. Our students are warm and friendly. This is indeed a lovely Christian family.

A parent shared with me at Back to School Night how excited she felt that her child was learning about the Armor of God in his classroom. Another parent testified to the fact that her child was sharing the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with her family
members. Yet another parent told me that her child is considering being baptized in the very near future.

Our goals for the upcoming year include:
 Expanding our enrollment through the marketing of our school to constituent churches and the general community. Our home rooms will be adopting and visiting churches to showcase the talents of our students.
 Increasing our endowment base through reactivating our Alumni Association. We are starting a chapter of the association for the Glendale Adventist Academy campus and the Greater Glendale area as a catalyst for our fundraising drive for the year.
 Building strong bridges with Glendale Adventist Medical Center (our sister organization) and other corporate organizations and municipalities in the area for top of mind name recognition.
 Diversifying our strategy for recruiting international students by working with agencies with a strong track record of success in the field.

With the Holy Spirit as our Divine Helper, victory is assured. Our Superintendent
of Schools, our School Board and committee members, our faculty as well as
Home and School Association are all behind us for success. Our vision is to
make our school the best in the region in terms of spirituality, academic
excellence, and financially viability.

To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands, Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar.
