Curriculum


seal for headerSince its inception in 1974, Grace Christian School has emphasized academic rigor, while teaching from a biblical worldview.  GCS provides engaging and creative learning, combined with a structured and caring environment.  As a learning community, we encourage each student’s intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, and emotional growth by applying biblical truth in the context of real life.

The lower school primarily uses A Beka books in the delivery of coursework . The Middles and Upper School uses A Beka books, as well as, BJU press textbooks in conjunction with the latest educational technology to deliver a rigorous academic program that empowers our students to excel in higher education.

High school students are required to complete the following courses for graduation:
