GCS is a blessing to my family! GCS is training my children in a challenging academic environment, while nurturing them spiritually. The values that my children learn at home are reinforced during their school day. My kids like the soccer and basketball programs, as well as the student worship team. I do not know what we would have done without GCS!

I have two children who have graduated from Grace Christian School. I am so thankful for the Christ centered education that my children received. The teachers and staff were not just there to do a job; they became like family to my boys. The 12 years that we spent at the school gave my sons a foundation to go on to serve the Lord as men of God! We highly recommend Grace Christian to any family considering a Christ centered education!

Wonderful school. They go above and beyond in every way for the kids' intellectual and spiritual development. They were extremely gracious and generous when it came to financial difficulties we experienced. Truly Christian in both words and actions in how they conduct business.

We have been extremely blessed by our children attending Grace Christian. The school has wonderful and qualified teachers, great staff, involved parents and strong academics, but most important it is God-centered. Our children are growing each day in their walk with Christ and we could not ask for more than that. God Bless.

My sons were students at Grace from it's first day back in 1997. They enjoyed a challenging academic program that prepared them well for college. They also enjoyed great relationships with Christian teachers and role models who encouraged them to think and to articulate their beliefs. The mentoring they received from coaches and dedicated teachers helped both of them become compassionate leaders in their respective universities and work places. I will always appreciate Grace Christian School and highly recommend it to any parent seeking a quality, caring, Christian education for their children!

Grace ChristianSchool is a wonderful place that nurtures each student and encourages them to become the person God has called them to be. The close, family atmosphere makes it easy to incorporate the school's mission to partner with parents to provide an exceptional spiritual and academic environment consistent with Biblical truth in all aspects of school life!

An excellent school! The high school has dedicated staff. Advanced Placement courses are available through the Seven Star online program, and the core courses will help your student grow academically. The spiritual life is excellent. As a teacher, I am blessed to serve here! Congratulations of joint ACSI and NEASC accreditation & the celebration of 15 years of service!

Grace Christian School is not only a school to my son, but a loving family to my family. The teachers are kind, loving and excited about teaching our children of every age. Even the school lunches are well thought out and prepared with love! This is definately a school that you will enjoy and that will make impressionable memories on you and your childs hearts.

I love this environment for what it doesn't have. It doesn't have student fights, smoking, drinking, foul language, all the norms of a larger school are non existant at Grace. It leaves room for so much more character growth from the child, when those barriers are not a factor. Wonderful, caring staff and parents make the whole package a must.

Not only a great school from a parent perspective, but my kids love attending. As a parent I chose Grace for its small class sizes, challenging academic programs and biblical teaching perspective. My kids, on the other hand, rave about the fun stuff at school - like field trips, pottery, skiing, great cafeteria food and special friends. This school is a gem in Southern Vermont!

I have an elementary student and a high school senior. Grace Christian has provided an academic environment that has allowed both to excel while gaining in confidence and character development. I am strongly recommending Grace Christian as a parent, as a local pastor, and as a board member at the school!

I graduated from Grace Christian School and am very thankful that I did. The teachers are excellent due to their love for teaching, the students, and Christ. If a student is struggling in a certain area, the teachers will always be willing to go the extra mile to help encourage and teach them what they do not understand. For the students who are more advanced, the teachers find ways to challenge them in their coursework. They want their students to reach their full potential. You will become so close to your classmates that many times you feel like famly. I have met some of the most important people in my life through going to this school. It encouraged me in my faith. There is always someone to speak to (teachers, staff, etc) about any struggles you have whether it be spiritual or personal.

Grace is a fantastic educational facility! I have had children at Grace since the first year of the school (1997) and I couldn't be happier. My oldest is succeeding at an academically challenging university and my youngest will be graduating soon and has already received early acceptance to the college of his choice. I believe that Grace is the reason they have been able to succeed academically. Spiritually Grace has nurtured them along their Christian walk from the time they accepted Jesus as their Savior into young adulthood. Five words: Worth every penny of tuition!

Grace is a great school. My oldest just graduated from there in June and is doing well in college. She started going to Grace in 1st grade. She just recently wrote a blog about how much the school family meant to her through all the years and how much she loved it there. Both my girls love the close knit family environment. They also enjoy having so many international students in their school. I encourage everyone to come check out the school and meet the staff!

Both of my children have graduated from this school and are very thankful for their years at Grace. The school prepared them very well for college and now one has a Master's degree (and a good job!) and the other one is a third grade teacher in a Christian school overseas. This school is a very special place and my whole family has been richly blessed by it.

Best school I've been to, compared to one of the other schools I've been to. I'd tell you to go, although the teachers have no degrees, so they're horrid at grading. The administreator is the best person I've known, and she's very nice. I left because of bullying, and I still get bullied here, but it's only because I'm a little differant than the students here. My hair, my clothes, all that is different from what they dress like, other than that they're amazing/

Anyone thinking of starting your children off at GCS should do it, Mrs. Perry is the BEST kindergarten teacher anyone could ever have!! My children both attended GCS but my son left for high school but when it came time for my daughter to do the same she made a deal wtih us that she would pay half her tuition herself if we let her stay at GCS, that is how desperately she wanted to stay! Some of my daughter's friends have left and have attended public high schools and it has been sad to see that most have caved under peer pressure, GCS is a haven for our children, positive peer pressure and encouragement to do good! My husband and I are releived that our daughter made the choice to stay at GCS we could not ask for a more Christ-centered teen!

Grace was an fantastic educational experience for our children. We were there a bunch of years. It is a great environment for learning. The teachers are creative and challenged the children. There were standardized testing but also access to Chapter reading service for my child that needed it. They had band, plays and a choir. They are respected in the Bennington community and drew from a bunch of different churches. Go into the teacher's room at any time and you don't get the negative feelings I would get when I was in a teacher in the public schools. It is very spiritually nurturing for kids which helps the intellect to be free to thrive. We miss Grace and had to move due to my husband's work.

Grace Christian School has been such an amazing experience for our children. On the last day of school last year, two of my boys came home and started playing school. Recently in the car, my 4th grader said spontaneously, 'I love Grace.' They administrators care about the whole child. They have been responsive and flexible to the needs of our family. Issues come up but they are dealt with. The environment is warm and friendly. There are around 70 churches represented from the staff, faculty and children. Our three children come home with a thirst for scripture and a desire to learn spiritual things for themselves. I love the hunger for learning and the hunger for God that our little ones come home with. The facility is beautiful. It was the old Ramada before being transformed to school that it is. I am so grateful for the sacrifice of the founders.

We have been extremely pleased with the pre-k program at Grace Christian. The teachers are warm but firm and give gentle guideance. The childen are also given ample opportunity for both structed and unstructed play. We get weekly bulletins letting us know what is up at school and how the children are doing.
