Mission, Philosophy, Purpose and Design
Grace Christian Schools exist to help Christian parents fulfill their divine responsibility of educating and training their children. The school is dedicated to providing a high quality, Christ centered educational program. Continuous since 1969, it has served Long Beach and the surrounding areas by providing a strong core curriculum for K through 6th grade.
Faculty, Staff, Students
Our dedicated Christian faculty and staff help students achieve a quality education in the core curriculum. Our ethnically and economically diverse student population is encouraged and expected to achieve to their fullest potential in basic skills.
With encouragement, children are guided to maximize their gifts and talents. Computer education, hands on math, and science, field trips and writing across the curriculum are all used to enhance and provide a creative learning environment for each child. Application of biblical truths ensures an environment enriched in opportunities to develop leadership skills. Students are encouraged to glorify God with their choices. A strong music program and chapel performances help students to develop an appreciation for the fine arts.
Our class sizes are small and manageable. Classrooms are spacious and beautiful allowing for a variety of student activities, displays of work, and projects.
After School Activities
Students participate in our EDC program which includes free play, organized activities and a one-hour staffed homework room.
Parent participation is a definite part of our program. Parents have the opportunity to participate in the school's affairs through our PTF which meets monthly. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to join with the classroom teachers to provide a more enriched classroom environment.
Grace Christian Schools is a ministry of Grace Brethren Church of Long Beach, CA. As a continuous member of the Association of Christian Schools International, students participate in Spelling Bees, Band Festivals and Speech Meets.
