Genesee Country Christian School is a non-denominational Christian school that was founded in 1996. Susan Teitsworth and other members of the Christian community initiated the idea for the school. The school began with 6 kindergarten students, a principal and 1 teacher in a rented room in Groveland Federated Parish. Friends of the school built a schoolhouse and Genesee Country Christian School added one grade per year until the first kindergarten class reached the sixth grade. In 2010 the board voted to add a middle school program. The school added a seventh grade in 2011 and an eighth grade in 2012.
For more than a twenty years the school has depended on God’s faithful provision and has remained debt-free operating in the black each year! The board, parents, and faculty work together to help students grow in Christ and relate Christian truth to all aspects of life. We strive to work hand in hand with parents and local churches to instill within students the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and living a God-centered life. GCCS presently educates more than 70 Nursery through Seventh grade students.
