Grand Rapids Christian High School's mission is to prepare students to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society. Students, parents and staff are made in the image of God and as a learning community are committed to fully developing students' gifts in ways that affirm and celebrate each person.
Our school environment conveys God's love and motivates students to understand and delight in God's universe, exploring old and new questions, governed by a Biblical perspective.
In and outside of the classroom, what we teach and how we teach will focus on understanding our God, the breadth of creation, and how we must respond to God.
Our Christian learning community is committed to excellence, where all students are challenged to develop and use their God-given potential.
Students are prepared to seek to reclaim God's world through work and service.
