Specials play an important role in the total learning process for students at Gaarde Christian School. Students K-8 partake in music, art, drama, Spanish, science lab, and PE classes. We believe children are created to worship God through these avenues of expression and fun.

Grades K-8 yearly take part in the following Creative Art Productions:


Gaarde Christian School is dedicated to giving each student a Biblical worldview. Gaarde strives to do this through Bible classes and weekly Chapel.

Chapel is a time for K-8th to come together for worship, prayer and message. The goal of chapel is simple: to strengthen each student’s faith.
