2.  GCS will strive to cultivate a partnership with the families/ guardians of students through a shared commitment to support the goals/ core beliefs of the school, participate in the betterment of the learning community, communicate with each other according to the Matthew 18 principle, and heed to the biblical responsibility placed on parents for the education of their children.

3.  GCS will strive to recruit and retain faculty, staff, and administrators that demonstrate a commitment to godly character and professional preparation; as well as provide staff opportunities to learn and grow in their spiritual and professional pursuits.
