Why Christian education?
“In Colossians 2:7, we are instructed to “Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness (NLT).” Grace Christian School provides the biblical worldview in which students’ lives are built.”

Why did you choose Grace?
“When our daughters were in 1st and 2nd grades at another school, we felt some of the educational principles they were exposed to conflicted with biblical truths. We prayed for guidance, and through others He brought us to GCS.”

Vision for Grace’s future?
“My vision for Grace Christian School is to continue to provide a strong biblical education that nurtures each student to develop into the person that God envisions.”
