Why are you in Christian education?

With only one life to give my Savior and this world, I’ve found Christian Education to be an avenue for the greatest impact I can bestow on the next generation. The opportunities to bless students and families afforded me in this environment are beyond most anything else I could be doing with my life.

What sets GCS apart?

GCS does a great job of balancing familial warmth with academic rigor and standards. Our staff and students have fun, work hard, honor the Lord, laugh a lot, learn a lot, and genuinely enjoy being a part of the school.

Why are you thankful to be at GCS?

For years now, GCS has been a daily blessing to both me and my family. I’m able to watch the Lord work in lives every day. It’s not something we just talk about, but something our staff and I get to be a part of and see with our own eyes all year long.
