The Grand View Christian School Foundation (GVCSF) has as its main purpose to support the purpose, mission, support and development of Grand View Christian School (GVCS).

The original guiding principles are: “To provide high-quality Christian education and the opportunity for students to develop as biblically defined holistic persons for useful, productive, sustainable, meaningful, and joyful service in all areas of life – the glory of God and to the good of all people. We want to prepare the paths for our students futures with the help of our Bible-based education and our three pillar-based philosophy of:

  • Academic excellence
  • Integrated diversity through a common bond in Christianity
  • Opportunity to excel athletically and in the fine arts.

Why our school mascot is the THUNDER

2 Samuel 22:14 (ESV)
“The LORD THUNDERED from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.”

In Scripture, THUNDER is frequently employed to describe the awesome and unparalleled power of God. 

  • THUNDER is used as a figure of speech to communicate the power and potency of God’s voice (Ps. 29:3). 
  • God often announced His holy presence with THUNDER (Exodus 20:18). 
  • God used THUNDER as a weapon for war (1 Samuel 7:10). 
  • THUNDER emanates from the throne room of God in heaven (Revelation 4:5). 

To us, whether it is a deep penetrating rumble or a sudden deafening crack, THUNDER is an awe-inspiring reminder of the ultimate power of God and an emblematic expression of His universal supremacy. 

As the GRAND VIEW CHRISTIAN THUNDER, we desire to know, serve, worship, and proclaim this thunderous God. He alone is mighty to save!
