Homecoming fun in the ball pit!
Imagine a school where the love of Christ is lived every day.
Where children learn at the feet of teachers who are dedicated to seeing them grow in wisdom, and in stature and in favor with God and in favor with man.
A place where students receive an outstanding education; not just learning facts or how to perform well on a test, but rather how to use their minds to explore truth and to unlock the mysteries of God's creation.
A place where the whole student is developed according to his or her gifts, talents and passions, and equipped to discover and live out God's unique purposes for his or her life.This place does exist.
It is conveniently located on two beautiful campuses in the heart of Tyler, TX.
 It is Grace Community School.

When we moved to the area three years ago, we found GCS extremely friendly and accepting of our two children. The academics are solid and we really wanted an education rooted in the Scripture. I''ve never seen a school more committed to teaching "Christianly" than GCS.
