Welcome to Upper Elementary (4-6)
"We believe in the verbal inspiration of the sixty-six books of the Bible, that is without error and that it is the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. We further believe that the Scripture reveals God, the fall of man, the way of Salvation, and God’s plan and purpose in the ages."

Philosophy Of Education
All wisdom and knowledge come from God; therefore man’s education is complete only when God and His Word are at the center of learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Proverbs 1:7a
Educators are concerned with the total person: his intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social development. We believe the needs of the total person can be met only when approached from a Christian or Biblical philosophy. But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by Him. I Corinthians 8:6
We direct one’s attention to the various concepts of Christian education by apportioning education to three factors—the student, the curriculum, and the teacher.
  • The Student
  1. Created by God in His image, the student is of inestimable worth, possessing an eternal soul that shall either inherit everlasting life or everlasting damnation.
  2. Because of sin, he is unable to reach God. His nature is totally depraved, and foolishness is bound in his heart. (Proverbs 22:15)
  3. Faith in Christ Jesus is the only way of establishing a right relationship with God. Reality in life’s purposes and values can be ascertained in and through Christ alone.
  • The Curriculum
  1. God is the source of all wisdom and He has revealed Himself specifically in the Bible; thus God’s Word is the basis of all our studies and should be correlated with all experiences that the child has under the auspices of the school.
  2. Christian education should aspire to train a child in such a way that he will have a sound, practical working knowledge of the Word of God and be able to evaluate every circumstance of life from a Christian perspective.
  3. The home and church, ordained of God, and charged with the responsibility of training and teaching, (Deuteronomy 6:6, Matthew 28:20) should work together with the Christian School in promoting the student’s growth.
  • The Teacher
  1. The teacher in the Christian School must of necessity give evidence of knowing Christ as personal Savior.
  2. The teacher must be wholly committed to following and obeying Christ, thus wholly committed to a life of service to man for Christ’s sake.
  3. The teacher is to be faithful in executing their responsibilities as entrusted by God, the church, and the child’s parents.
  4. The teacher is expected to be able to present the Plan of Salvation when called upon to do so.
Parent Involvement
  • The PTF is a volunteer organization of GCS parents and teachers who have established the following goals:
    1. To serve Jesus Christ by working in accordance with the Mount Olive Ministries
    2. To foster fellowship of the GCS community
    3. To raise funds for school improvement
    4. To provide support for teachers, parents, and students
    5. To provide community goodwill
    • We hope all parents will make an effort to be involved with our PTF program.
