High School Academics and Curriculum

Grand Rapids Christian High School provides a strong preparation for college and career. Our rigorous curriculum includes math, science, English, social science, foreign language, religion, art, music, computer training, physical education, business education, applied technology, and family and consumer sciences — all taught from a reformed Christian perspective.

Grand Rapids Christian High School is committed to integrating faith and a Christian worldview into its academic program. Accredited since 1926, we provide a robust, liberal arts-based curriculum that has recently expanded include the common core state standards.

We believe that high school education should not only focus on mastery but also encourage exploration. The curriculum of Grand Rapids Christian High School includes a wide array of elective classes in addition to core subjects. Requiring a full four years of high school ensures depth and breadth in the student’s high school experience.

Our teachers are highly qualified, with many holding a master’s degree in their discipline. Our teachers:

  • Hold current State of Michigan teacher certification.
  • Hold credentials as being highly qualified in their teaching assignments.
  • Fulfill their continuing professional development expectations for the State of Michigan and Grand Rapids Christian Schools.
  • Develop annual professional goals and professional learning plans. 


We expect our students to demonstrate knowledge of our Christian perspective and to utilize this understanding as they are challenged to make decisions, raise questions, and examine real-life problems through the curriculum. We also expect students to be active participants in their learning, giving their best efforts toward developing a strong academic background for using their God-given potential to positively impact the world.
