We teach a curriculum with Christianity as our foundation, but wholeheartedly welcome
students of all religions.

At the Glenview New Church School, our goal is to create an environment infused with compassion and support to foster each student’s individual relationship with God.

We approach education through engagement and interaction, as we aim for our students to know God through their own unique perspectives. Our kids will hear bible stories in an age-appropriate fashion. We encourage prayer and questions and nurture a connection to the Bible through godly play.
