“Inquiry learning drew me in, and then the multi-age classrooms.
I value the idea of teaching how to think rather than what to think."
Evergreen Christian Parent
“The intentional integration of faith and learning is evident from the teachers at Grand Rapids Christian High School. The staff is very personable and very dedicated to their students and their calling as Christian educators.”
Grand Rapids Christian High School Parent
“As a 4th generation Grand Rapids Christian student, the mission and foundation of faith at GRCHS is something that is very important to my family. At Grand Rapids Christian, I have had the opportunity to learn in an environment that not only provides me with the best education possible but is also preparing me to do good in God’s world after I leave.”
Noah Nedd, Class of 2015
"I am totally 'sold' on Christian education. When we talk within our professional learning teams about essential understandings, it occurs to me that the most essential one is that all learning is most effectively taught under the umbrella of our Christian faith. I personally think our school system does that with integrity."
Nancy Knol, Retired Teacher
