GCS exists primarily to assist parents in fulfilling their divine responsibility to train thoroughly each child to obey God in every area of life.
This is accomplished by providing programs of learning experiences to guide the individual student in understanding, appreciating and relating to the truth of God as revealed in His Word, His world and in the Holy Spirit.
Academically, the school seeks to provide a learning program which is flexible and comprehensive enough to offer the best education possible for each individual student.
Additional supportive programs include a nurturing daycare for children(newborn—12th grade), a kindergarten preparatory preschool program, a competitive athletic program, and a fine arts and music program.
In the final analysis, it is the purpose of Gilead Christian School to help the student to grow as Jesus grew, “in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and Man.”
