Athletics Philosophy

The mission of GLS is to educate students for Christian service and leadership. The athletics program of the school assists in this mission by developing outstanding student-athletes who embrace these values. This is accomplished by employing dedicated Christian coaches and professional staff who embrace the values of Grace by providing sports events around which alumni, friends and students can rally.

The goal of our athletic department is that every Grace student has an opportunity to play sports in a Christ-like environment. I know many parents desire to place their children in a sports environment where the same principles and values are being reinforced on the field. We also believe that most parents would like to have their evenings open to once again have family time. Following is a list of the sports, grade levels and seasons in which they participate.
