Welcome to the website for Grove Christian School.

GCS offers a challenging academic environment with an emphasis on discipleship, all in a personalized, family atmosphere. GCS is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) ensuring that we meet, and, in many cases, exceed state education requirements.

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. Glorifying God for Life is our school’s theme. It is incorporated into every aspect of a Grove education - academics, athletics, biblical training and student life. Our goal is to partner with you in building a Godly foundation in your child.

At Grove, we offer an outstanding academic program for grades K3 through high school. Personal attention is given to each student as we assist those with individual needs and challenge those who excel.  Biblical applications are incorporated into every subject, every day, and our students see these principles exemplified in the lives of their teachers. At every grade level, our degreed and certified teachers continually challenge and engage our students in learning. Our goal is to prepare your child for whatever journey God has planned.


Announced 04/20/2015

The Grove Christian School Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Julia Lloyd as Head of School at Grove Christian School. This is the culmination of a search process bathed in prayer and blessed by God with several highly qualified candidates. We are doubly blessed to be able to announce that Dr. Bruce Hunter will also be joining the leadership team as Academic Dean.

Mrs. Lloyd brings many gifts and a breadth of experience in teaching, education administration and curriculum development, staff development, ministry, management, and budgeting at many different levels. She holds a bachelor's in English, a master's in Curriculum and Instruction, and is a current doctoral candidate in Education at VCU. She has a passion for digital teaching and learning, organizational development, and change management with a desire to "raise up a generation of leaders...to impact the world for Christ."

Dr. Hunter comes to us from The Woodlands Christian Academy in The Woodlands, Texas, where he has held a similar position as Academic Dean.  He has almost 30 years of experience at all levels of Christian school administration and brings with him an uncommon level of wisdom and experience.

Please join us in welcoming Julia and Bruce to GCS as we raise prayers of thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father who has brought such a dedicated and gifted leadership team for our school.  We look forward with great anticipation to what God has in store for Grove Christian School!
