Granger Christian School exists to educate the whole child – mind, body, and spirit (Luke 2:52). In middle school students are given opportunities through 21st Century strategies and methods to discover who God created them to be. Differentiated coursework provides maximum benefit and challenge to every student while ensuring Indiana state standards are met. Students are not limited by grade level standards; these standards are the floor, not the ceiling, of education.
Middle school students join their high school peers for chapel services, and participate in community service projects that enhance and reinforce the tenets and principles instilled in the classroom. Service projects are borne of student initiative as much as school mandate. For example, a discussion about slavery in one history class yielded discussion of today's human trafficking epidemic. One student sought a way for her classmates to help alleviate the plight of the victims of the trade, and a relationship with Women at Risk was founded. Today, the school partners with Women at Risk for fundraisers and other support activities. These kinds of projects taken on by students are not only allowed by GCS, but are encouraged.
