Welcome to Crusader Country!

Greater Beckley Christian School was established by Faith Baptist Church in 1973 as part of our commitment to Christian education. GBCS is committed to providing a biblical alternative to secular education from K-3 through 12th grade.

With a current enrollment of 287 students, we have been consistently growing over the last five years. As a school, we are Accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International. All of our teachers are certified through ACSI as well. Our motto is, “Quality Education in the Light of God’s Word.”

Superior College Readiness

GBCS students consistently outpace WV State averages for College Readiness.

GBCS offers two college preparatory diploma programs. The first requires students to take the advanced math and science courses of trigonometry and chemistry in addition to each of the general diploma requirements. A total of twenty-seven credits and a GPA that meets Promise Scholarship guidelines is required.

The second advanced college preparatory diploma requires the advanced courses of trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, and physics. A total of twenty-eight and a GPA that meets Promise Scholarship guidelines is required.

Seniors at GBCS are given the option of participating in a dual credit English and Bible program. Greater Beckley partners with Appalachian Bible College to offer college credit for English 101, English 102, Bible 101 (Bible Doctrine Overview) and Soc 103 (Foundations of Marriage and Family). If students choose not to attend ABC, credits can easily be transferred to the college of choice. Students are also given ACT and SAT preparation information beginning in their junior year. As seniors they also take a class devoted to scholarship and college entrance applications.
