Spiritual Life

At Calvin, we count it a weighty privilege to help your child grow intellectually, but also spiritually. Throughout their education, we aim to teach students a foundational Biblical worldview and a growing sense of discernment. Every subject is taught from a Christian perspective, as students discover, innovate, and create to proclaim God’s glory. Our bi-weekly chapels, cross-grade student life groups, Bible studies, service opportunities, and prayers teams foster an authentic Christian community and encourage students to develop their own personal faith. Ultimately, we desire for our students to live out expressions of gratitude as they seek to live a life of service and a love for Christ.

Prayer Room

In 2016, a team of students, faculty, and GCCS parents worked on overhauling the former Student Life Center into a prayer room. The prayer room is intended to counteract this emphasis on endless activity; instead of push notifications and alerts, the space will encourage mindfulness, self-reflection, and prayer.

Kenya Connection

Grandville Calvin Christian School has been in a cross-cultural partnership with The Reverend Murupus Academy (RMA) in Kapenguria, Kenya for more than a decade. Reciprocal travel has allowed us to meet one another face to face and to grow to care deeply for God’s people in Kapenguria.

We invite the Grandville Calvin Christian community to sponsor a child at the RMA, providing a staff member or a needy family with the opportunity to continue to provide quality Christian education for their child. Recently the RMA has begun to provide refuge for children from Uganda and other surrounding areas that are in turmoil stemming from corrupt governments and elections that have torn these countries apart. Children as young as three years old, have come to the RMA to find love, security, and an opportunity to know Jesus Christ.

Our goal for this partnership is to experience the richness of God’s love to all people no matter where He has placed us. Both school communities have been blessed by this partnership and will continue to seek God together as we work to guide children into a deeper relationship with God.
