The Drumline at GRCHS is open to all students (including non-music students). This is a high-energy performance ensemble, which provides entertainment at GRCHS home football games and other select school events. Students will learn how to play and march with the snare, tenor, and bass drums with proper timing and technique.
Open to all students who are interested in supporting and spending time with students with unique needs. Share in the opportunity to encourage each other by engaging in activities and games during Focus/Lunch break. Eagle Links partners will also be encouraged to attend school activities and extra-curricular events together.
Students interested in developing, refining, and testing their public speaking and acting skills are offered the opportunity to be involved in the forensics program. The forensics team also competes competitively against other schools. Learn more here.
Do you consider yourself to be a good friend? Are you looking for a meaningful way to be involved this year? Well, there is a new leadership team forming here at GRCHS, focused on friendship & community building. Club meets meet during lunch on Tuesdays and works alongside Inclusive Education students on creative projects that will benefit others.
Students meet every Thursday night at school to develop and practice their improvisational acting skills. The team learns fast-paced, short-form improvisational comedy and performs three public shows during the school year. This is a “try out” group, but students from all grades are invited to the tryouts in the fall.
This group is focused on reaching out to our neighbors in the refugee/immigrant community through service, advocacy, prayer, education, and hospitality. We will seek Christian social justice through events such as hearing testimonies, tutoring students, welcoming families, and visiting churches together. We are working with Bethany Christian Services, the CRC Office of Social Justice, and other local organizations.
National Honor Society (NHS) was established in 1921 to recognize outstanding high school students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character. Juniors and seniors at GRCHS who have a GPA of 3.7 and above and have interest in serving the school community are strong candidates for membership. NHS consists of a student-lead executive board that plans monthly meetings. Members of the general body participate in service opportunities and activities within the school community. Applications are available to students in the spring of their sophomore or junior year. Learn more here.
Students may apply to become Peer Listeners. Students accepted into the program receive special training and refresher course work during each school year. The program is supervised by staff and is open to juniors and seniors. Peer Listeners are a group of students who serve our campus in a variety of ways. They welcome new students, they provide support for students during difficult times, and they are available to listen in confidentiality to students who are struggling.
The Puzzle club is open to all students who have an interest in working on jigsaw puzzles. Working alongside other GRCHS puzzle lovers will not only sharpen your memory, improve your brain function, but the clarity of mind and thought helps you clear out the clutter in your mind and the cobwebs accumulating over years.
Each year students nominate members of their grade to the slate of candidates for student Congress. They then vote for those they wish to represent them in this form of student government. The incoming ninth grade class members are asked in September to volunteer for membership. Each grade has ten to twelve members in the congress. Those members are responsible for grade level special activities, for involvement in a variety of school committees, and for taking leadership roles within the school.
Each year students have the opportunity to try out for parts in the theatrical production. Auditions are open to the entire student body. Besides being actors, students are able to participate in a wide range of related crews and committees, which are essential to the production including student directing, makeup, lighting, set/props collection and construction.
The Vex Robotics club at Grand Rapids Christian High School is about building, programing and driving remote controlled robots. The club provides an engaging and fun student experience that enables individuals to reach their full potential in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, while they develop the knowledge and skills vital to success in the 21st Century. There is a new challenge each year. Students start building their robot at the beginning of the school year. Starting in October there are matches against other schools.
Open to all students at Christian High, this group meets together for Christian fellowship and faith enrichment. Young Life provides students an opportunity to share their faith with one another, talk over issues or concerns, and develop special bonds of friendship through the group’s various social activities.
