Portrait of a Graduate
When choosing a school, families have many things to consider: location, quality of education, safety, extracurricular offerings, and much more.
But what really sets one school apart from another? At Grand Rapids Christian, our mission is “preparing students to be effective servants of Christ in contemporary society,” and we take that calling seriously.
Through our mission statement, vision for the future, core value statements, and daily goals both in and out of the classroom, we aim to mold students into the kind of servants who will care for and restore God’s world.
Yes, we educate students at a high level. Yes, we coach them on the field, direct them on the stage, and travel with them around the world. Many schools do these things well.
But what really makes a graduate of the Grand Rapids Christian Schools unique? Our Portrait of a Graduate describes just that.
By using their unique gifts to glorify God, pursue personal faith, and bring about shalom in the world, graduates of Grand Rapids Christian Schools will be...
