Grand Rapids Christian Schools cares deeply about creating learning environments that welcome all God’s children as important members of this Christian school community. Support services as comprehensive as those we offer require additional funding beyond that provided through tuition.
On March 17, 2016 Grand Rapids Christian Schools hosted our annual Circle of Friends reception. Through this event and other efforts, over $173,000 has been raised to help underwrite our $1.5 million investment in the students we serve through Student Support Services.

At the 2016 Circle of Friends reception we heard from Michele Dykstra. Michele and her husband, Brent, are the parents of Case, Kendall, and Evan. Michele shared Evan's story of living with multiple "invisible" diagnoses and how he has been able to thrive due to the compassion and determination of his teachers and the support services staff. Michele was introduced by Sue Pluymert, Evan's teacher at the Iroquois campus of Grand Rapids Christian Elementary School.
