Welcome to Grace

The mission of Grace Christian School is to equip students to reach their God-given potential through academic excellence founded on a biblical worldview foundation. At Grace we create an environment which reflects God’s design and love and empowers students to live, learn and grow to their full God-given potential.

Student Life

At Grace Christian School meeting the needs of the whole child is our core goal. Spiritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually we strive to engage our students and provide them the opportunities to grow and develop the passions God designed them with.

The mission of Grace Christian Athletics is to provide an excellent sports program for our students that will help them develop their God-given abilities. We want our student athletes to honor and glorify God in all that they do (I Corinthians 10:31). Athletics is something that God allows us to do, not something that defines us. We need to make God first place in our lives.
At GCS, we have a variety of artistic opportunities for our students. Art classes start in kindergarten and continue through the high school level, allowing our students to build their artistic abilities as they grow. A yearly Fine Arts showcase has become a much loved tradition at Grace and many of our students have gone on to achieve awards at state level in both music and arts.
Elementary, Middle and High School students all attend a weekly chapel service. Services at GCS are designed to provide opportunities for these various school divisions to engage in corporate praise and worship, and to hear relevant, Christ-centered messages from area pastors and speakers. Students are encouraged to showcase their talents through student led worship and share inspirational messages appropriate for each grade/age level. Parents are always welcome to attend any of our chapel services.
This program is designed to meet the needs of Grace Christian School families during after school hours. This program allows for children to relax, play, or work on homework with our trained staff members. All activities are staff led and free time is adult supervised. Meeting the child’s developmental needs and providing a continued social, spiritual, and intellectual experience is a perfect way to compliment their education at GCS.

The talented chefs at Grace Cafe take pride in their customized, nutritious, cooked from scratch meals. Breakfast and lunch are offered daily and your child can choose an a la carte option or enjoy one of their 5 star inspired lunch specials. We invite parents to enjoy breakfast or lunch with their child as we are sure you will enjoy the quality and convenience offered at Grace Cafe.
