Greater Things Christian School
Home of the WARRIORS
and the 4-DAY School Week!
The mission of Greater Things Christian School is to engage and educate the whole student: heart, mind, and will. We accomplish this mission by delivering quality academics with a differentiated approach to instruction from a Christian perspective.
Our Current Grades
- Elementary: TK*-4th Grade
- Middle School: 5th-8th Grade
- High School: 9th Grade**
*Transitional Kindergarten (TK) offers an additional year of pre-kindergarten for boys and girls who are not yet ready for kindergarten because they do not turn 5 before the August 15 cutoff or for other reasons as determined by the child’s parents.
**We are offering 9th grade during the 2023-2024 school year with a high school grade to be added each year. Our first high school graduating class will be in 2027.
Our unique 4 + 4 Schedule for grades K+ offers a 4-Day School week, Monday-Thursday, with 4 mandatory “FUN Friday” field trip days per year: one each quarter. Our days are slightly longer (7:45 a.m.-4:00 p.m.), but our weekends are longer, too, offering more family time.
Our Extended Care Options
We offer extended care from 6:15 a.m.-5:45 p.m. In addition to our four-day school week, we offer Focus Fridays with additional academic activities and projects.
