We are a specialty school.

All of the spiritual, intellectual, athletic and social developments that are part of the profile of a GCS student are directed towards a singular end: helping each student become an influential leader for Christ in whatever way God may call each student according their varying talents and abilities that He gave to them.

We design to cultivate 21st century learners who can think both critically and creatively.

Grove Christian School was established in 1978 as a ministry of Grove Avenue Baptist Church. Located in the church’s modern facilities, the school was created so that students would be taught the same Christian values at school as instilled in the home and the church.

“We are One,” is our school’s theme. It is incorporated into every aspect of a Grove education – academics, athletics, biblical training and student life.

We are accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancED, ensuring that we meet and even exceed state education requirements.

From The Head of School, Julia Lloyd

My Prayers for GCS:

  • That each member of the GCS community knows the only true God and the one He has sent – Jesus Christ. (John 17: 3)
  • That each member of the GCS community keeps the Word and brings glory to the Father.  (John 17: 6)
  • That each member of the GCS community is protected by the power of the name of Jesus Christ and that not one is lost. (John  17:12)
  • That each member of the GCS community is sanctified by the truth. (John 17:17)
  • That each member of the GCS community be completely one so that the world may know Jesus and know the love the Father has for each of us. (John 17:23)


Grove Christian School exists to partner with Christian parents by providing a Christ-centered environment that integrates learning with biblical faith so that students can achieve God’s purpose for their lives—spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.


At Grove Christian School, we equip servant leaders to follow Jesus to transform generations and nations and impact the world.

Statement of Faith

Grove Avenue Baptist Church and Grove Christian School uphold the following doctrines of Christian Faith:

  • The inspiration of the Bible, equally in all parts and without error in its origin
  • The one God, eternally existent Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created man by a direct and immediate act
  • The preexistence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutional death, bodily resurrection, ascension to Heaven, and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • The fall of man, the need for regeneration by the operation of the Holy Spirit on the basis of grace alone, and the resurrection of all to life or damnation determined by each individual’s personal decision to receive Christ as Lord and Savior
  • The spiritual relationship of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, living a life of righteous works, separated from the world, witnessing of His saving grace through the ministry of the Holy Spirit
