With every blessing comes responsibility. The greater the blessing, the greater the responsibility. Here at Grace Christian University, the blessings of God are everywhere…both the student growth and the student’s growth.

Excellent Christ-centered education has a cost and as we strive to achieve the highest standard we work smart and hard to narrow the gap of the cost and what the student pays. We need your partnership more than ever; more volunteers, more prayer partners, more of your financial participation.
