GCS is an amazing school. My boys are getting an education that will 100% prepare them for life beyond high school. They are loved, nutured, challenged, accepted. I have heard from GCS graduates that their freshman year of college was easy thanks to the rigours of Grace.

GCS has given my kids the confidence, courage, knowledge to handle all that life brings them. They are taught to examine all subjects through a Biblical lens. They are challenged to be all that God created them to be. I know they will succeed after high school thanks to their education from Grace Christian School.

I like that it is a college preparatory school. I really feel that my son is learning all the right tools to be successful when he moves on. He is very interested in the sports here and they have taught him discipline and structure. The teachers are amazing, they work hard for the students.

My son is able to take classes that will really prepare him for going off to college. He will be equipped with the right knowledge and work ethic to be successful. He also participates in basketball and track. He has made a good group of friends and loves going to the school.
