Grace Christian College (Traditional 繁體字:菲律賓基督教靈惠學院/ Simplified 简体字:菲律滨基督教灵惠学院), formerly known as Grace Christian High School (GCHS), is a Born Again Christian school that caters primarily to Chinese Filipino students and provides education from Pre-Nursery to College. It is situated in Grace Village, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Its current president is Dr. James L. Tan.[1]

History[edit]

Grace was founded on July 5, 1950 [2][3] at Nagtahan Street in San Miguel, Manila, by a Chinese educator Mrs. Julia L. Tan and American Baptist missionaries Dr. and Mrs. Edwin G. Spahr. Few years after, in 1966, Grace moved to its current location in Grace Village, Quezon City, to accommodate an increasing student population while donating the Nagtahan location to Grace Bible Church for the Christian Academy in Manila. Inauguration for the new campus was held on August 2, 1966. Two years after, the school bought more properties inside Grace Village for further expansion.

The school uses the A BEKA Curriculum in English, Science and Bible.[4]
