Our Vision

Loving: All Squires will strive to love God with all their heart, mind, and body and will love others as Christ loves them. GCCS strives to be a compassionate Christian community that provides care to the hurting, both in our community and around the world.

Learning: Each Squire will be a passionate and curious lifelong learner. Each student at GCCS is prepared to serve God in a global community by being proficient in the skills of critical thinking, digital media literacy, collaboration, communication, and innovation.

 Serving: All Squires are guided to discover their unique gifts given to them by God, are encouraged to develop them and are given opportunities to serve God and others in our community and around the world, now and always.
