GCS Serving Others


Grace Christian School is committed to teaching our students how to serve others.  In addition to many service opportunities for the elementary students, the middle school is required to complete 10 service hours and the high school is required to complete 20 service hours each school year.

The picture above is a recent 9th and 10th grade service project to the Raleigh Food Bank.  Students sorted over 5,000 lbs of potatoes to serve over 4,200 meals to the homeless.

We are proud of our students and their service to our communities.

Upper School Update


The GCS Quiz Bowl Team did outstanding with a second place finish in the Lee County Competition on January 30th.  GCS Teacher and Coach Crilly was especially proud of our young team and the way that they handled the pressure of the competition.

From Mathematics to Literature, from Sports to Music, the Quiz Bowl competition left no category behind.  Chase Erford and Colin Crilly co-captained the GCS Team this year.  Members of the team also included Caleb Robinson, Megan Swindell, Mario Ji, Brennan Shapiro, Danny Lee, and Chris Gilgis.

After success in several rounds, the GCS Quiz Team made it to the final round and eventually achieved a 2nd place finish.  The team is already preparing for next year and an opportunity to place 1st.  Congratulations GCS Quiz Bowl Team!

Elementary Update


The Elementary School at Grace serves Kindergarten through 5th grade.  As Christian educators, our first responsibility is to present the Gospel clearly and provide opportunities to understand a Biblical worldview.  The curriculum is designed to provide a Biblically-centered, challenging program taught in an age-appropriate manner. Consideration is given to the development and nurture of the whole child – spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. Academic standards are raised, but not met or demonstrated in exactly the same manner by all students.  Grace Christian School also offers music, art, physical education, computer, library, and other enrichment opportunities.

GCS Scholastic Book Fair —  Thank you to each family who supported our very FIRST Scholastic Book Fair.  The sale totaled over 6K which will help provide many library books and classroom improvements.
