Who We Are


Greater Portland Christian School (GPCS) is an independent, multi-denominational, college-preparatory day school for preschool through twelfth grade.  We are a Christian institution, founded and maintained for God’s glory above all other considerations. To achieve our highest goal of directing our students to worship their Creator and Savior through learning, we partner with Christian parents and churches in training our students to view every subject and every aspect of life through the lens of God’s Word, the Bible—to think biblically about their world, and then to live in harmony with that biblical perspective.

GPCS parents choose this school for their children because of our Christian worldview; our competent, caring faculty who share their biblical values; the strong academic program; small class sizes; extracurricular opportunities; and supportive community atmosphere.


Greater Portland Christian School provides a distinctively Christian education which complements the home and church, brings a biblical perspective to every subject, and helps parents prepare their children for a God-glorifying life.


Founded in 1973, Greater Portland Christian School is recognized by the IRS as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. GPCS is recognized by the Maine Department of Education and is actively preparing for the accreditation process. We are a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Maine Principals’ Association (MPA).


Greater Portland Christian School is a distinctively Christian institution dedicated to biblical principles of fairness and equality (Proverbs 24:23; Acts 17:26; Galatians 3:28). Therefore, GPCS welcomes students of any sex, race, color, and national and ethnic origin, providing them all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students in the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
