Our Mission Statement
Great Lakes Christian High School fosters excellence in education while equipping learners to seek, serve and become like Christ.
Meeting Our Goals
GLCHS is an independent not-for-profit Christian High School and a registered charity in Canada. On an annual basis, approximately 80% of the high school revenue comes from student fees, 15% comes from donations, and 5% from other sources (rentals, investments, solar panels, etc.).
Seeking annual donations provides a level of accountability to stakeholders, allows us to maintain a competitive fee structure, supports a robust financial aid program for qualifying families, and enables us to make strategic improvements to programs, facilities, and equipment.
Expenses at GLCHS can be broadly categorized into three areas:
employee remuneration and student scholarships,
bursaries, and financial aid
BRICKS & MORTAR
maintaining and improving upon facilities,
equipment, and property
short/long term investments, curriculum/service
development, debt reduction, etc.
When material needs are met, we are able to focus on delivering a program that is safe, qualitative, and Christ-focused.
Therefore, a donation to GLCHS, regardless of where and how a donor chooses it to be applied, is an investment that pays eternal dividends.
Approximately 60% of GLCHS Expenses are Wages and Benefits for Staff.
Our annual fundraising goal is $400,000. Thank you to all who make a commitment to supporting our school financially.
