Greater Things Christian School is a Christian school, located near the corner of Hwy 96 and White Bluff Road in Burns, Tennessee.
Our K-6th grade school week is from 8:00 a.m.-3:45 p.m. Monday-Thursday. We offer 6 a.m.-6 p.m. extended care and Focus Friday attendance options. Focus Fridays offer students the opportunity to focus on special projects and re-enforcement activities. GTCS Little Warriors is a full-time, 5-day per week, year-round preschool for children over 18 months old.
The mission of GTCS is to engage and educate the whole child: heart, mind, and will. The Gospel of Christ changes their hearts. The introduction to and examination of the body of knowledge educates and forms their minds. Teacher mentoring and discipling forms their will to engage in those activities and choices that help them grow into responsible adults. We strive daily to individualize and differentiate instruction in order to help students engage higher levels of thinking and learning. We promote an inquisitive and fun pursuit of knowledge and wisdom through classroom instruction, chapel, hands on learning, and field trips.
All our classes promote quality academics. Subject matter is taught from a Christian perspective, and biblical truths are integrated into each academic subject. Our elementary curriculum resources include DeepRoots Bible; Mosdos and Journeys literature; Abeka phonics, McGraw-Hill My Math/Glencoe Math; Studies Weekly; etc. GTCS Little Warriors utilizes Saxon Early Learning, Positive Actions for Christ, BJU Press, etc.
We offer low student-to-teacher ratios. God has gifted our school with an experienced, degreed, and caring faculty. Our teachers are passionate about helping students excel in gaining both knowledge and wisdom, while ensuring that students understand concepts and make correlations to other subjects.
