Statement of Non-Discrimination
Grace Cascade Christian Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color or national/ethnic origin in the administration of admissions and/or educational policies. As a religious, private institute, however, it does screen students on the basis of academic ability, conduct, and compatibility with the religious goals, purpose, resources, and philosophy of the school. As a discipleship school, Grace Cascade Christian Schools does seek to enroll students from families who are actively involved in a Bible-believing local church which supports the Grace Cascade Christian Schools’ Statement of Faith. However, families are evaluated on an individual basis and those who are open to seeking God’s truth and learning more about Him may be considered for enrollment as well.
