Est. 1996

GCS is an ACSI member school, recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education, with well-qualified certified teachers all dedicated to our students’ success.

GCS is a non-denominational Christian school.

Below is a list of our core beliefs.

We believe the Bible is the only written Word of God. It is inspired by Him and is wholly trustworthy and authoritative.

We believe in the resurrection of all persons – those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in one God, eternally manifested and existent as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit by whom the believer receives sanctification and the power to live a godly life.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory.

We believe in the spiritual unity of the believer in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in the necessity of salvation through regeneration by the Holy Spirit because of man’s sinful nature inherited from Adam. We believe that man is justified only through God’s grace by personal repentance and faith in Jesus Christ and his shed blood.

“[Our son] is valued, nurtured, granted grace when he errs, encouraged, held accountable and truly loved [at GCS]. Yes, they have challenging curriculum, small classes, etc; but most importantly, they breathe Jesus into the very soul of my child.”

“GCS Students are challenged in all aspects of the core curriculum; as well as being taught character traits that are not only biblical in their foundation, but are exemplified in the adults who teach them.”
