Welcome to the CCRC Page! At Gallup Christian School we are doing our very best to provide our students, no matter the age, with the best in Christian Education and preparation for the future. So, as our GCS juniors and seniors approach some weighty decisions on college and career, we offer CCRC (Career and College Readiness Course) *free of charge to better help them solidify these new and hopefully rewarding paths! (*made for Jrs. and Seniors BUT open to all those interested in the beginning stages of mapping out the future... not just having an "idea").
CCRC will continue to be headed up by our principal Eric Taylor and his wife Dr. Felicia Taylor, who, just last year, helped Gallup Christian's biggest graduating class get out to an amazing start with real plans and not just dreams or wishes concerning the future. As the Taylors have run their own outside business doing much the same work successfully, we know that our students are uniquely poised to succeed!
GCS, welcome to your future!!!
WE BEGIN: MONDAY 1/23/2017 (2:30-3:30PM), next meeting time posted after class today.
