Ask anyone who knows Grand Rapids Christian Schools. They'll tell you that our schools' influence reaches far beyond the classroom. At Grand Rapids Christian Schools, we want students to not only learn, but to serve, with classes that are as spiritually rewarding as they are academically challenging. We're developing leaders: young people who openly share their faith and values.
Today's students are tomorrow's strength: entrepreneurs, doctors, teachers and pastors. At Grand Rapids Christian Schools we're preparing young people with skills, knowledge and values that will last a lifetime. We're preparing them to learn, to serve, to lead.

GRCHS Chapel Note 12/10/13:
Students were challenged to consider Advent as a time of waiting, a time of hope and anticipation. Senior Bastian Bouman shared his essay on vigilance. Students were encouraged to contemplate the fulfillment of God’s promises through Christmas, and to grasp how great God’s love is for us.
Christ was born in a dirty stable. Let Jesus into the dirty places of your life so he can pull you out and make you clean.
