Grapeville Christian School Teaches with Internationally  
 Known Faith-based Curricula

When people talk about Christian faith-based K-12 school curriculum, there are a couple of names that come up time and time again – Bob Jones University and A Beka.


Bob Jones University and A Beka are well respected publishers of faith-based curriculum, and Grapeville Christian School, a K-12 school in Greene County, New York, two hours north of New York City on the north end of the Catskill Mountains, uses both. A Beka at the elementary level and Bob Jones University at the high school level. And students from the small Christian school are every bit as eager and ready to enter college – and many do – following their senior year at Grapeville Christian School.


Both Bob Jones University (or BJU) curriculum and A Beka integrate biblical stories and lessons and morals into every subject. Even math, which is not an easy feat. 


Bob Jones University publishes curriculum in every core subject and then some.

  •     Bible
  •     English, Writing & Grammar
  •     Handwriting
  •     Literature
  •     Math
  •     Music
  •     Phonics
  •     Science
  •     Speech & Drama
  •     Spelling
  •     Vocabulary
  •     Family Life Skills
  •     Foreign Language
  •     Heritage Studies


Both the English Language Arts and Mathematics standards contain an increased emphasis on deeper understanding of underlying concepts rather than on mere memorization of facts. They also emphasize critical thinking.  


School and Church


Grapeville Christian School can accommodate 84 students in grades K-12. It sits at the far end of the village of Grapeville at the edge of what is known as the east branch of the Potic Creek. It’s not only part of the 200-year-old Grapeville Christian Church, it’s adjacent to the church and the two are closely tied together. The school is a ministry of the church.


Grapeville’s students come from several surrounding school districts: Greenville School District, Cairo-Durham School District, Catskill Schools, Coxsackie-Athens Central School District.                            

Parents who want the faith-based experience for their children can relax as Grapeville's teachers provide both a rigorous curriculum and a character education experience based on the Christian faith.
