About Us


Board of Directors
Over the years, God has blessed Goodpasture Christian School with godly leadership whose goal has been to build confidence, intellectual growth, and spiritual strength in every student. While many aspects of our school have changed, others have remained constant such as a family atmosphere, daily Bible study, the modeling of Godly values, lasting friendships, and strong preparation for higher education.
