OUR FOUNDATION OF FAITH

OUR CORE VALUES

ROOTED IN CHRIST
 

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Developing a strong knowledge of God, a love for His word, and an understanding that all we do is for God’s glory is fundamental to a Grand Rapids Christian Schools education.

UNITED WITH HOME
AND CHURCH

Ecclesiastes 4:12

When churches, families and schools work in partnership, they create a rich atmosphere for faith to grow. 

EDUCATED FOR LIFE
 

Deuteronomy 4:9

Our passionate and dedicated teachers prepare students to enter today’s world through effective and relevant methods that engage students and instill a love for learning that is life-long. Our goal is that all students will learn and grow to their full potential as they prepare to transition to be effective servants of Christ in today’s society.

CALLED TO SERVE
 

I Peter 4:10

Excellence in God’s eyes is doing one’s best in Glory of Him. Service is an opportunity for Christ to be visibly revealed as the Lord of all things. Through service, we engage in worshipping God and extending the love of Christ in transformative ways.

CONNECTED THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS

Philippians 2:3-5

Developing a strong, personal relationship with Christ, as well as intentional, meaningful and respectful relationships with their teachers, other students, their parents, and their church are essential building blocks in a student’s education. It is through meaningful relationships, developed in a Christian context, that students mature in their faith and fulfill their God-given potential.
