OUR CORE VALUES

G – God Centered

Our school is based upon the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17).  The primary objective of GCS is to work together with parents and local church to train our students to develop and live according to a Biblical worldview.

C – Character Focused

Character training is an important aspect of GCS.  We desire to see our students grow in their God-given talents and abilities and use them for His glory.  (Romans 12)

Purpose & Philosophy

  • “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, He will not depart from it.”  (Proverbs 22:6)
  • The purpose of Grandview Christian School is to provide quality education in a Christian context.  We provide academic excellence for each child through a basic fundamental curriculum.  The curriculum is based upon the foundation of God’s truth to promote Christian character, conduct, and patriotism.  Grandview Christian School continuously seeks to bring glory and honor to God through assisting parents and the church in the preparation of young men and women who will touch the nations of the earth by doing all they were created to do to the best of their ability.
  • The mission of Grandview Christian School is to educate students who will serve God and impact the world through biblical thought and action.
  • It is a God-given responsibility of parents to educate their children. Sending a child to a Christian school does not shift that responsibility. Neither does it lessen a parent’s role in the educational process. It is our position at GCS that it is our job to “Come along side” our parents in the education of their children.
  • Since all the truth belongs to God, God should be honored in every field of study.  God’s revealed Word, the Bible, is the standard by which all claims to truth are measured.  It is our prayer that any child attending Grandview Christian School will develop and grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

Statement of Faith

  • Grandview Christian School (GCS) is a community Christian school focused on those beliefs which Christians share in common.  Our statement of faith is as follows:
    • We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:15, II Peter 1:21).
    • We believe there is one triune God who is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
    • We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
    • We believe that all have sinned and are in need of salvation through acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior.
  • GCS believes that the above precepts are basic to the Christian faith.  It is not our intent to promote the doctrines of any one church or denomination. Matters of doctrinal differences or personal interpretation are to be left to the parents of the students and the churches they attend.  Student enrollment is open to all whom subscribe to the four above stated precepts of the Christian faith, and who abide by the guidelines and policies set forth in the Parent/Student handbook.

Non-Discrimination Policy

  • Realizing that the scripture makes clear that Jesus has won for Himself a people from every tongue, tribe and nation, Grandview Christian School will strive for an intentional diversity in both staff and student body.  We believe that we honor the Lord when we actively seek to live in unity with all members of the worldwide Body of Christ.
  • Grandview Christian School admits students of any gender, race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school.  We welcome students of all races and nationalities who willfully submit to the statement of faith.
