Grace Christian School started in the fall of 1979 under the leadership of Walter Lee Hodges, former pastor of Grace Baptist Church of Columbus, Georgia. We are happy to say that our doors have been open these many years to the greater Columbus area inluding Harris County, Muscogee County, and Ft. Benning, GA, as well as Phenix City, Smiths Station, and Ft. Mitchell, AL. GCS holds to the philosophy that education from a Christian perspective is the only true form of education. Two outstanding elements contribute to the schoolís philosophy of education: first, our curriculum is Bible-based and Christ-centered. Second, our staff consists of dedicated Christian teachers who are concerned about their studentís physical, mental, and eternal welfare.
The schoolís primary objective is to show children how to live rather than just how to make a living. The truths of the Bible are not substituted or separated from academics at GCS. Instead, they are integrated into the entire educational program. Standards of discipline and conduct are Bible-based to develop Christian character and sound values. GCS strives to maintain a truly Christian philosophy of education, high academic standards, and the proper emphasis upon morals, discipline, and social development.
