George Royal Academy (GRA) aims to advance God’s kingdom by raising up the next generation of Christian leaders in the township communities of George, South Africa. We have a heart for the city and desire to see our students’ lives transformed, families changed and communities uplifted.
Students are selected based on their sporting abilities and they receive full bursaries to attend GRA. We are committed to the holistic development of our students, focusing on their academic, physical and spiritual growth. GRA invests in their future by providing quality education, a highly competitive sports programme as well as mentoring and discipling. Basic needs such as school uniforms, travel to and from school and breakfast and lunch are provided to ensure that every student has the best possible opportunity to succeed in life.
GRA encourages an environment of excellence, emphasizes the importance of a good work ethic, the value of teamwork, commitment, consistency and character. We strive to enable and equip students to advance God’s Kingdom and change their trajectory in life so that they may walk in His fullness.
While the students are with us from Grade 8 to Grade 12, we invest in them beyond the time they spend with us. We want to see them succeed and therefore work with them to pursue tertiary education programmes, job opportunities or further their skills in their desired field of interest.
Our aim is to transform lives and advance God’s Kingdom one student at a time.
