Shine - \shīn\ - v:
1. To be bright by reflection of Christ’s light.
Welcome to Grand Haven Christian School, a place where God is glorified, parents’ Christian values are reinforced, and all children are nurtured in their faith. We seek to help each child, no matter what their ability, reach their full potential in all areas of their lives – in their minds, hearts, and lives of service. In short, we want our school and each student to SHINE for Jesus Christ.
Located in beautiful Grand Haven, Michigan, Grand Haven Christian School offers the most comprehensive Christian day school program in the area. Teaching from the Reformed perspective that emphasizes Jesus as Lord of all areas of life, we offer classes for students preschool through 8th grade in all regular academic disciplines as well as physical education, band, choir, music, visual arts, computer technology, and introductory Spanish.
Grand Haven Christian School is a part of the Western Michigan Christian Schools collaborative (www.testingyourfaith.org), a joint effort to elevate and sustain quality Christian education throughout western Michigan. After graduating from GHCS, many students continue their education at Western Michigan Christian High School (www.wmchs.net), a key member of this effort.
Life at GHCS...
This year’s school theme is “Growing in God’s Garden”. The theme comes from the words of Colossians 2:6-7:
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Last year’s theme was “Dig”, and encouraged students and staff to dig into God’s creation, to dig into God’s Word, and to dig into trying to know God’s will for our lives. This year flows out of the “digging”, into the idea of putting down deep roots in Christ and his Word, growing strong branches of faith, and bearing much fruit as an expression of our thanks.
