We Thrive on Diversity

In 1981 we began The Potter’s House with the intention of making a real difference in children’s lives. Class sizes would be kept small. Families would be involved. Lives would be changed. We would emphasize the principles of discipleship, stewardship, and decision-making in a Christ-centered atmosphere.

The Potter’s House has a unique approach: a truly Christ-centered education for a diverse student body.

Today we are fully accredited and have more than 530 students in grades PK-12 on two campuses. While many exciting things have changed about The Potter’s House since 1981, our mission has remained constant: making Christ-centered education available to all children.

You are part of The Potter’s House. We need you.

Thirty years ago we began The Potter’s House with the intention of making a real difference in children’s lives. Today, we see all of this taking shape in the Potter’s hands.

“Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Isaiah 64:8

The Potter’s House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nondiscriminatory organization.

This school is accredited by The Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation.

Senior Stories

    I came to The Potter’s House in Kindergarten as did all the kids in my family. Sometimes I think that if I’d gone to a bigger school I’d know more people. On the other hand, I know everyone in my class and the advantage of that is that I understand how to get to know people better- in a deeper way. I’ve also gotten to know teachers well and I can honestly say that every one of them has impacted my life positively, each in their own way. Next year I plan to attend Michigan Tech in the UP mostly because the academics are strong in engineering and I want to become a mechanical engineer like my dad.

    I came to The Potter’s House in Kindergarten. My brother and I were adopted but my sisters already attended this school and my mom wanted all of us to have a Christian education. Thinking of all these years, my first thought is the large number of classes that have deeply impacted me. I think the early years were the most formative because they helped me know who I am. Next year I plan to attend Grand Rapids Community College so I can save money and then I’ll transfer to either Grand Valley or Ferris to study Criminal Justice.
