My son is a new student this year. I cannot say enough wonder things about the staff and administration at this school.

Genesee Christian was a terrible experience, far from pleasant . I came to the US with my family from Mexico and attended 2nd grade through 7th. I experienced many humiliations while attending this school. I was different from everyone, and NO ONE in the school system reached out to make me feel comfortable.
... Read more I was shy and reserved compared to the other kids. It seemed everyone was stuck in this weird persona of being outgoing, into sports, and "perfect". or else you were an outcast. No one knew how to deal with different personalities, absolutely no cultural competence. It literally felt like being trapped in a box full of clones.Thank God my parent's pulled me out after I had literally no friends or faculty I could rely on and fully developed social anxiety. I began attending Grand Blanc public schools and was exposed to different personalities, thoughts, experiences, and beliefs that helped me compare myself and find who I am. I made friends and had people I could relate to that helped me cope with my anxiety, I was accepted for being me. The public school system prepared me far better for the real world than this school.

My son has attended GCS for three years (since Kindergarten) and will be returning next year. The academic programs here are outstanding, and the teaching staff is very engaged. As a result, my son is farther ahead than his public school counterparts. I am thrilled that we chose this school, which has

It was important to me to have my child attend a christian school to support the morals and integrity we try to instill in him, and to have like-minded people (both other families and the staff) to support those efforts.

I attended GCS K-12th grade. I truly enjoyed my school years. I was more than prepared for college. I was able to test out of several classes and was even given an athletic scholarship. I truly believe I am a better person for attending this school.

We have three children attending GCS. I can only speak for the elementary, as that is where our children are in attendance, but I must say, every teacher we have had so far is superior. They are selfless in their giving to our children. It is most definately a ministry and that is evident as they

I attended GCS from sixth grade until graduation. GCS is a fine institution and definitely prepares students for life after high school as well as, and in most instances better than, public school systems. I was very well prepared for college after my time at GCS. In fact, I did well enough on my
