Our Community

“…so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” – Romans 12:5

We Love Being Community

It is intentional that the word ‘Community’ is a part of our school’s name; it is an intrinsic part of our school’s identity. Our identity as a school is deeply rooted in the idea of togetherness, and it’s important to us that you know how much we value every single person who makes up our student body, faculty, staff, parents, grandparents and alumni families.

As we teach and encourage our students to develop a sense of compassion and understanding for each other and the wider community, so we too seek to embrace and serve those around us; within in our school community, in the city we live and beyond.

Community times together include:

Thoughts from some of our families


We chose GCCS because we wanted to offer our daughter the opportunity to learn in a school environment that upholds the value of nurturing children to be the people God intended. Truly impressive is the devotion and passion of knowledgeable staff, alongside opportunities for children to excel in music, art and sports. We appreciate chapel times, occasions to meaningfully support the broader Guelph community, and the wealth of options to be involved as parents. We are proud to be a part of a school that continuously points our precious daughter to knowing her worth as a child of God.

Current Parents

As new parents to GCCS, we have come to appreciate the sense of family throughout the school - from the staff, to the parents, to the kids. We also appreciate how special it is to have a parent-led school and having a wonderful Principal who has a wealth of experience in Christian education and who takes a well-considered approach to all aspects at GCCS.

Our son joined the preschool program in the fall of 2021, after a great experience there we had him continue on to JK for 2022/23. Being new to the area I felt a sense of community right away, I love sending our son there and he is learning so much! God and faith is incorporated into daily learnings. I was also blown away by their Christmas performance, their music/arts program is amazing and I look forward to seeing my kids explore those areas of learning.
