Register to attend HERE. Please contact Jill Anderson in the GRCHS Counseling Office if you have any questions.

GRCHS Summer Session – Incoming Freshman!

At Grand Rapids Christian Schools, we believe a student's learning and growth do not stop when the second semester ends. Summer Session is an exciting way at GRCHS for students to participate in fun enrichment and immersion activities during the summer and earn high school credit. Incoming 9th – 12th-grade students can participate in courses, workshops, college prep activities, and driver's training.

There are many great reasons to take a class during Summer Session:

  • For new students: get a taste of academics at Grand Rapids Christian High School! Make a few friends before high school starts!
  • Get ahead on graduation requirements
  • Make room in your normal school-year schedule for electives and Advanced Placement classes.
  • Take unique classes that aren't offered during the school year
  • Demonstrate to colleges that you invested in summer enrichment
  • Prepare for college entrance exams

All summer offerings are posted online at, and registration will begin on March 3 at 8:00 am.

A Note From Outdoor Education

Our 6th-graders visited Bridge Street Ministries last week and we were all impressed by several points:

  1. The good work BSM is doing on behalf of urban students involved in their Ressurgence Program.
  2. The amount of needs these students face daily that we so often take for granted.
  3. The stories of God at work in so many ways.

I share this with you because Bridge Street Ministries is our recipient this month for our Pop Can and Spare Change Fund proceeds. Currently, we have $35.60 on hand. Keep it coming! 

Last Friday, our middle schoolers had the opportunity to meet with Justin Ulberg, a Michigan Conservation Officer. Justin shared with us a bit about his work and its importance. One of our standards as Earthkeepers is conservation, taking care of our natural resources. I am always grateful and look forward to Justin's voice in this discussion.


Our next PTO meeting will be on Tuesday, February 21 at 6:30 pm in the RCS staff lounge, near the gym entrance. Please contact Lindsey Toth if you are interested in joining or have questions about serving.

It's Auction time! Mark your calendar now and plan to attend the RCS “Race for the Roses” Auction on Saturday, April 29, 2023. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to benefit the Christ-centered and nature-rich education at RCS. This money will be used to enhance outdoor learning spaces, create a nature-based early childhood playscape, and fund new outdoor recreation experiences for our middle school students. 

Please consider sponsoring our auction or donating an item/service. Please contact Allison Breuker with any auction-related questions.

RCS TRIP Office 

The TRIP Office is available on Tuesday mornings in the RCS Office!

New to TRIP? TRIP allows you to reduce the cost of tuition by purchasing gift cards and gift certificates for things you buy every day from hundreds of national and local vendors.

How does TRIP work? When you purchase gift cards at face value, a percentage of your purchase is credited to your TRIP account. Two times per year (November 1 and May 1), the accumulated TRIP credits are applied as payment to your tuition account, or donated to the tuition account you have designated.

Parents in Prayer

We have a unique opportunity to gather as moms, dads, and grandparents to pray for our school — little siblings are welcome too!

Parents In Prayer will be meeting on Wednesday mornings after drop-off. We will again be meeting outside and walking around the campus. We will follow the guidelines given by the Moms in Prayer organization. You can find the resources that we will use here.

We look forward to having many parents join us this year!
