Academic Emphasis

At Grayson Christian School, we do not make unrealistic promises, but we do promise to give your child a high level of academic excellence nurtured in an environment that is distinctively Christian.  We believe this will provide your child with the strength and ability to lead a godly, fruitful, and happy life.  We offer a comprehensive curriculum combined with a strong foundation in Christian and moral teachings.  Students gain hands-on experience with today’s technology through use of our computer and science labs.

 

What is the key to a good education?  All aspects of training are important, but a child’s ability to read is fundamental to all other learning. Constant strengthening of basic reading and comprehension skills continue throughout the elementary grades. The sooner a child masters basic reading skills, the sooner he or she will achieve and enjoy learning. At Grayson Christian, the emphasis on reading skills begins in kindergarten with a strong phonics program that equips a child for excellence in all areas of academics. The combination of excellence, traditional education, spiritual training, and opportunities in computer, foreign languages, fine arts, and athletics provides your child with the building blocks necessary for a strong educational foundation.

 

We strongly believe that God has a specific plan for each one of our students, and it is our goal to prepare our students for whatever the Lord may call them to do. As Christians, we do not want our young people to ever be hindered in the work of the Lord due to a lack of education or preparation. Grayson Christian enjoys working with families to ensure a quality education to further the minds of our students and the kingdom of God.  Our academics are enhanced by the following:

 

Student to Teacher Ratio

Our ratio is approximately 12:1. The small class sizes allow our teachers to conduct experiments, teach individually, and to work more one-on-one with students. The teachers at GCS are dedicated and willing to offer help classes and even private tutoring outside of the traditional class time.

 

Technology

Our campus is equipped with wireless networking, an up to date iPads, Chromebooks, SmartBoard technology, and is improving in technology every year.

 

Strong Curriculum

Starting in Pre-K3 our students are challenged daily to stretch themselves to become the student God would have them to be. Our Kindergarten programs have a strong focus on Phonics skills to give our younger students a strong foundation of basic reading skills to build life long learning. As students enter into elementary they are challenged to develop writing, arithmetic, computer, and reasoning skills. Upon entering the upper school, students are challenged to hone the skills and stretch the learning through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum.

 

At Grayson Christian School, your child can have an excellent academic preparation along with the extra advantages of Bible instruction, and every subject taught from a God-centered point of view.
