We believe that the best way to regain influence over our culture is to provide our children with the best Christian education possible. For more than 30 years, GICS has been acting on this belief and making a positive difference in Grand Island.
Scholarships make a difference in the lives of students and their families. Last year's money made it possible for a grandmother who is raising her grandchild to send their grandchild to the school. The student has found haven in the midst of a chaotic home situation and has found a teacher who they really feel cares about them. They have begged to spend more time at school because they feel safe and cared for and enjoy the small class size and the attention they receive. It is the goal of Grand Island Christian School to provide not only a good environment to learn the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic but also a caring environment that children can feel loved and safe in a setting of small classrooms with caring teachers who are giving to the students sacrificially and not just as a job. Beneficiaries = families!
In the Fall of 1979, a handful of Godly men met together to discuss an alternative to public school education in the Grand Island Area. Having witnessed the gradual removal of Christian influence, including prayer, from public education, they felt it was time to form a Christian school that could be based on God'(tm)s Word. Shortly thereafter, Grand Island Christian School opened its doors for the first time, with two teachers and 19 students. As God has given the school growth, we have moved from a small, rural setting, to rented space in a local church building in 1994, to our current location at 5-Points in Grand Island in 1996. The school is private, state-approved and inter-denominational, operated under the charter of Grand Island Christian School, Inc. This corporation is made up of mature, born-again believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, giving the school quality leadership and guidance.
