    Gideon Academy was Established in 2007 by Aniceto Hernandez, a request from the previous church board was made for the school to relocate in 2010, it was then that God provided 1316 Shafter Road and Gideon Academy now had its official location 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 Hernandez and 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.
