We believe that the best way to regain influence over our culture is to provide our children with the best Christian education possible. For more than 30 years, GICS has been acting on this belief and making a positive difference in Grand Island. Operating as a private, non-profit corporation, we are Grand Island’s only independent Christian school approved by the state of Nebraska.
Three decades ago, God raised up A Beka Book to provide Christian schools with God-honoring, high-quality textbooks and aids to help each school fulfill the goal of its ministry. The hundreds of traditional Christian materials developed by A Beka have been developed and refined over a period of 50 years in the classrooms of Pensacola Christian Academy. At GICS we have been using A Beka Book for more than 20 years.
Our staff is made up of committed Christians from various conservative Christian denominations. In addition to maintaining the highest personal standards, teachers are expected to be fully supportive of the school’s mission and statement of faith.

The mission of GICS is that we exist to train students to see all of life through the truth of scripture while deepening their desire to love God with their whole heart, soul, and mind. For over 30 years we have provided a distinctively Christian and academically excellent education and look forward to serving the Grand Island community for years to come. Did you know that:
- GICS opened their doors for the first time in 1979
- We began with 2 teachers and 19 students
- Our first school building was located outside of city limits
- We outgrew our rural building and met for 1 and ½ years at the Berean Church
- The Westlawn building was purchased from GI Public Schools in 1996
- The Community Redevelopment Authority awarded us $209,000 in grant money for a major renovation in the fall of 2010.
- Our renovation project was completed September 2011
- The current building was sold to True North Church in December 2016. True North has graciously allowed Grand Island Christian School to continue operating as a Christian School rent free and utility free for a five year period! God is Good All the Time!
We appreciate the countless businesses and individuals who have been a part of our history and because of their prayers, time and contributions we are still going strong today. Thank you!
