Athletics at Grace Christian School 

The Grace Christian Warriors have excelled in sports for many years!

Athletics is an important part of a student’s school experience. Many lessons are learned which assist in the development of character and values. Through a student athlete’s participation, they will be challenged to grow and develop in numerous ways. The athletic program at GCS is designed to complement our commitment to academics and Christian values.  The purpose of the athletic program is to teach students to develop a Christ-like attitude and lifestyle. We will emphasize Christian character and expect our athletes to be a witness on and off the campus. We desire our students to see athletic participation as a means to develop and grow as part of a team effort and not for self-glorification.

 
Grace Christian is a Class B School and follows LHSAA rules and guidelines. Most sports have junior varsity and varsity teams, and many include junior high teams (5th-8th grades) as well. 
If your student is interested in participating in a sport, please contact the coach for details.
