19 GRCHS Awards and Honors

GRAND RAPIDS CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HONOR & CELEBRATE ONE ANOTHER.  

They are thoughtful, compassionate, and considerate towards the needs, values, traditions, and feelings of others; intentionally acting to make a positive difference in one’s own life, the lives of others and their surroundings. They understand and appreciate their own and other’s cultures, personal stories, and accomplishments.

As the year draws to a close we honor and celebrate students who achieved various honors at our Senior Awards Night and Honor Roll Celebrations.

2019 GRCHS Honor Roll Awards

2019 Senior Awards

The Senior Awards Night is unique because we don’t just celebrate our top GPAs or students who took the most difficult classes or the MVPs of our athletic teams. Our mission is to prepare students to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society. Our awards recipients tonight are being celebrated with what I might call our “mission accomplished awards!” Our Portrait of a Graduate is what “the product of our mission” could look like.  Students who are culturally competent, lifelong explorers, creative solution finders, thoughtful neighbors, communicators and collaborators, justice seekers, and most importantly, disciples of Christ.

Senior Award recipients are chosen by faculty and staff for the way they have discovered their gifts and started to live them out. So we are excited to celebrate and we are thankful to God for his faithfulness over the last four years.
