Since 2005, Glad Tidings has been providing education & child-care to families in West Orange County. The growth of the children's emotional, physical, relational & cognitive development come first and foremost.

In 2014, GT Preschool expanded to Kindergarten in continuing with the overall vision of Glad Tidings to educate from the cradle to college. In 2016, GT expanded the academy through launching our East Campus - providing education from infants to 8th grade.


Glad Tidings Pre-School is an outgrowth of the vision of Glad Tidings Church; connecting people to God, to one another, to the marketplace, and to the world.  It shall serve the purpose of providing a Christ-centered environment for the little ones in its care.

“Thank you for stopping by and taking interest in GT Academy. We hope you don’t stop here at our website, but that you’ll come in to one or both of our campuses for a face to face tour. Our desire is to know you better, and establish relationship with your family. We’re here to serve.
