At GHC, students participate in a variety of learning activities that meet their needs academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Our learning environment consists of small group lessons, large group gatherings, many hands-on activities, and traditional teacher-to-class instruction.
- We have a K-12 Director of Curriculum who oversees and develops our curriculum. We are on a five-year cycle of reviewing each of the curricular areas.
- We pride ourselves in academic excellence, while teaching and applying a Christian perspective inside and outside of the classroom. Standardized testing (ACT and SAT scores and other State and National standards) are used as we develop a Christ-centered and academically challenging curriculum.
- Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing: Standardized test scores support the fact that GHC offers a high-quality academic experience, as our students consistently score well above the national average.
A unique small-group activity is called family groups. A group is composed of fifth grade leaders and various students from grades K-5 which meet monthly. Students form bonds extending beyond their individual classrooms as well as building multi-age student relationships and developing leadership skills. Serving local children through Angel Tree, eating lunch with the principal, and going on a scavenger hunt are a few of the fun activities family groups enjoy together during the year.
