Greater Works is a great christian school. The faculty love the kids and are concerned for them both academically and spiritually. The facility is great and the tuition is reasonable. We are excited that we found this school for our children.
My child attended Greater Works for a few years. There was no 7th or 8th grade this year so we could not return. However, I would highly recommend Greater Works Christian school to any prospective family. The academics are challenging but not overburdening. We appreciated the loving and supportive teachers and the great spiritual environment where the kids had chapel 3x per week, small groups, and teachers that made it obvious that they loved the kids and the Lord.
I myself went to Greater Works and now my son is attending school here. I can not express how happy I am with this school. It not only stimulates my son academically but also spiritually, which is very important to me. There just aren't enough places like this school around. I feel truly blessed to have graduated from Greater works and to now have my son learning the same principals and values I did. I would definitely recommend sending your child here!
Great School. My daughter has attend Greater Works for 6 years. She as grown academically and spirtually as a person. I like that this school is a family. I can't think about her having to attend a public school in a couple of years. Hopefully the work will get out how great this school is and that they extend it to the eight grade.
My son attends Greater Works for the 4 year old TK program. We chose Greater Works because they are one of the few schools that offer a full day program for 4 year olds and would be accommodating to our schedule. As the end of the year approaches, I can honestly say I couldn't be happier with our decision to send our son to GW. Not only is my son thriving with basic academics, but his exposure to classes such as Spanish and missions are things you can't find anywhere else at his age. This school is helping to shape his character in ways I never imagined. Missions class is making him more aware of our obligation to help those in need and he's taught it in a way that he understands and then communicates to others. He is given a great deal of independence because of the structure of the school. If you would have asked me in the fall if I thought my son would be able to walk through a lunch line to get his own food and then sit nicely and eat at a table of other kids without a teacher right next to him- I would have said "no way"! Or if he would be responsible enough to be "the mailman" and walk upstairs with a friend to deliver the days messages to the secretary, or even go to the restroom alone- I would have told you that you were crazy! But these are things my 4 year old has learned to be responsible about doing and he takes pride in doing it. He has gained such independence and confidence in himself because the teachers encourage him to. I love the sense of community in the school. All of the children seem to know each other and acknowledge each other by name in the halls. The "big kids" really take on a leadership role with the little ones and when theyâ''re all together you really see that they are a family. Also, every teacher and administrator I have had the pleasure of meeting has been outstanding and above and beyond friendly. The maintenance staff, the cafeteria workers, the ladies at the front desk, the teachers and the office staff.....these folks really care about our kids. It was never my intention to send my son to GW beyond the 4 year old TK program, but now I can't imagine him not going to Greater Works.
I could not be more pleased with the education and character my daughter has gotten from Greater Works. I work in public school every day handling child crisis and it makes me so grateful to have my daughter at this school. We recently relocated and transportation is difficult, but worth every minute of driving because there is no way I would take her out of this school. I hear they may try to increase the school to the 8th grade and I couldn't be happier to hear that!!! I have recommended the school to MANY friends. Send your child here!!
I have two children that attend Greater Works Christian School. My children love their school and their teachers. The teachers are extremely supportive and have made accommodations to help enrich my child's education. The school has a small town school feel, with everyone knowing each other. The extra activities with a family focus such as movie nights and Dounuts with Dad/Muffins with Mom really wonderful bridge between home life and school life. The missions focus (community service focus) has taught my children to reach out and care for others at a very young age. It really shows them their how to put their faith in action.
My grand-daughter attended Greater Works last year before her family moved out of state. She loved the understanding, supportive teachers and friendships she made with fellow classmates. We appreciated the emphasis on her development as a whole person and the especially her spiritual development...the fact that Godly principles are reinforced in day to day interactions and chapel attendance. We highly recommend this school!
I am a very proud parent of 3 students that attend Greater Works Christian School. It gives me great pleasure to recommend this outstanding school to any parent who is seeking an academically challenging, Christ centered, loving and nurturing environment for their children. Greater Works hands down in my opinion can stand shoulder to shoulder with Sewickley Academy academically and in class room size. I can say this because my son attended the school several years ago. Greater Works school, teachers, adminstrators, and staff is no less than superior in my ratings. I highly recommend! Patrice Plum, PA
I highly recommend Greater Works to any prospective family. The academics are challenging without being frustrating. Attention is given to any child who seems to be struggling with a new concept. The school is very spiritually sound, with spiritual development classes, chapel time, and small groups in which the kids can talk things through, and apply the spiritual and life lessons being taught. The fifth and sixth graders designed the yearbook in a Yearbook Club after school. A dance club is also offered for the older kids. If you are looking for a safe, nurturing environment, please check out this school.
If you are looking for a small class environment with kind and caring teachers then look no more. The teachers work with each child at their own learning pace - fast and slow. My daughter has attended for 4 years and is thriving academically and spiritually and she loves it!
MY HUSBAND AND I WERE VERY IMPRESSED OF THE TOUR OF THE SCHOOL. WE ARE PLACING OUR DAUGHTER IN THE THREE''S PROGRAM THIS UPCOMING (2013-14) SCHOOL YEAR. THIS SCHOOL SEEMS TO HAVE IT ALL!

With so much uncertainty in the world today and a pandemic further confounding our lives, it's reasonable for parents to want to protect their children whenever and wherever possible? But overprotecting or bubble-wrapping? Well, that's another matter.

Why Small Class Sizes Work
You want your child to receive plenty of individual attention. That's one of the reasons most parents send their children to private school.
