Middle School
Great Commission Middle School is one of the three schools of Great Commission School. The middle school includes grades 6 through 8, as well as a team of dedicated staff members. We are centrally located in Altoona, with transportation available from neighboring school districts. The curriculum and extra-curricular activities are tailored to meet the specific needs of the middle school student.

High School
Great Commission High School is a place to call home where students, teachers, staff and parents are like family. We envision our students excelling in serving God and others not only while enrolled in GCS but after they graduate as well. Students describe our school as a place where it is easy to build student/teacher relationships and where the teachers and staff are caring and helpful. Students who transfer in regardless of the grade level indicate that GCS is a place where they feel accepted. When asked how he would describe GCS, one student simply said, “Wonderful.” With our small class sizes, teachers have the opportunity to really get to know and care for their students. Above and beyond the day to day tasks and teaching that occur at GCS, we are a Christian School where the core of our ministry revolves around our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Perhaps that is why we all feel like a family…because we truly ARE a family of believers.
