Passionate Teachers Inspire Success

Engaged Learning

Knowing how to put classroom lessons to work in real-world applications is crucial to college and career success. That’s why GCS faculty engage students with hands-on learning opportunities throughout the year. Projects can include working in the garden during their Environmental Science class, constructing and launching 2-liter bottle rockets in Physics class, flying kites built by students in Honors Geometry, writing letters to residents at an area rest home, and many high and middle school groups/clubs volunteer to pack shoeboxes at Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan’s Purse Warehouse. 


Prepared For College

High school students at Gaston Christian School benefit from rigorous academic courses that include opportunities for 9 advanced placement classes and a wide array of electives in visual and performing arts and more.
