Eagles Always Rise

Eagles Always Rise! What an amazing evening it was as we celebrated 100 years of God’s faithfulness! From the opening reception to the closing song, from honoring Superintendent Tom DeJonge as the Richard M. DeVos Distinguished Alumni to looking forward to the next century as we welcomed Superintendent Elect Aaron Winkle, from the music of our students to the words of our leaders, the room was filled with joy and excitement.

We are so grateful for the Grand Rapids Christian Schools community - those who attended the event, those who gave a gift to support our students and families, and those for whom GRCS holds a special place in their heart. See below for photos and links to the videos that were shown at the event.

Because of the generosity of the GRCS community, over $660,000 has been given to the Eagles Fund! To join in honoring this significant milestone and invest in the future of our students, click on the link below.
