    Gideon Academy was Established in 2007 by Pastors Aniceto and Juanita Hernandez. It was through prayer and fasting that God provided 1316 Shafter Road for Gideon Academy to help every student learn, all while keeping tuition affordable for all families.  Gideon would be absorbed under the umbrella of Christ Centered Church 501(c)(3) where Pastor Hernandez leads his congregation and the collective board is committed to guiding students to discovery and long term learning.  Pastor Aniceto and Juanita Hernandez along with the members of Christ Centered Church are passionate about inspiring and motivating students to learn.  Our disciples of today will be tomorrows disciple makers preserving a holiness lifestyle for generations to come.
