Both of our children have and currently do attend GCS. I could not be more pleased with the education that they have received. Not only is the curriculum well balanced, but the teachers, administration, and lunch department truly show love and care towards the students. The athletics and drama departments do a phenomenal job every year. Our family has been truly blessed by attending GCS.

GCS was the perfect place for our children! They have gone on to college and success in the workplace! We are truly thankful for the faculty and staff that loved and cared for our children during their time at GCS! They competed in sports, participated in fine arts programs and received an exceptional education that was partnered with Biblical teaching. I would highly recommend GCS to any family!

GCS teachers truly care for their students. This is a school with strong academics, great athletics & fine arts, and a family atmosphere. Christian faith and worldview are the focus at GCS. My kids have thrived in the smaller class sizes!
