GCS was very excited to announce the start of our capital campaign - The Next Level - Saturday night at the Fall Banquet. We are passionate about Christian education. Our first goal without looking too far ahead is to eliminate both campus mortgages and develop a contingency fund. Once this is established, we want to pursue building a gymnasium to hold our own sporting events, holiday programs and assemblies, so that we may be able to serve and be a shining light in our community more effectively.
We recognize that these goals are huge and seemingly impossible to achieve, but we serve the One True God who is the ruler of all. He has been faithful to provide needed funds time and time again throughout the history of Galesburg Christian School. He does this through the faithfulness of His people!
GCS uses A Beka (phonics based reading) and Bob Jones curriculum which provide an outstanding learning system built on a foundation of academic excellence and Christian character training. Our students consistently test above average in all grades and in all categories. Last year the average of standardized test scores for the top student in every grade was above the 83rd percentile and the average scores for those students who were attending for their second year improved by 7%. Beginning at three years old, each class studies the Bible, both as a personal application and also with extensive scripture memorization. Chapel is held weekly with times of worship, preaching and participation from visiting speakers and missionaries. Every child is loved for who they are, where they are.
