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.

Dear Grace Christian Family and Kathy Rouse (Heritage tour coordinator), It was wonderful to see all of you and share my experience at the Naval Academy with such a bright group of (8th grade) students... Thank you for the guiding light you all have been and the moral foundation you instilled in me at a young age...You all are amazing and without wonderful role models and teachers like you the world would be a much darker place. Keep shining for the Lord!

As we passed an ambulance on our way to school this morning I found out that when the kids hear one going by the school they stop class to say a prayer for the person in need. Just one more thing that I LOVE about our school.

(Our daughter) enjoyed her visit very much...the atmosphere is much more laid back and friendly than (her other) high school. The Honors English teacher made a lovely impression on her and so did the cafe lunch...One of the other things that made a big impression on her was the fact that students were openly talking about church and which ones they attend.

Cascade has built who I am today. My life can be divided into pre-Cascade and post-Cascade periods. Cascade is where you can find your true spiritual identity with the Lord.

I am deeply thankful to have grown up at Grace Christian School. Looking back, I realize more and more how blessed I am to have attended. Now 28 years old, I am teaching English in (the Middle East). So many projects and activities, the impressions my fruitful and faithful teachers had on me, continue to inspire me today. Thank you Grace! Praise the Lord :)!
