Great Lakes Christian High School
  1. Shadow Day: Friday, November 24th 8:00am-3:15pm. Students come for a day to experience what high school is like as a Great Lakes Laker! (Lunch provided). To register: Click Here.
  2. Pirates of the Great Lakes is a 5-act family friendly comedy. Set in 1784, some wayward pirates take some wrong turns and find themselves in the strange waters of Lake Ontario near the great cataract of Niagara when the peninsula we all know was still part of the English controlled Providence of Quebec. Pirates of the Great Lakes is mostly a silly and hilarious journey that will have children and adults laughing as this farcical adventure unravels. We hope you will consider joining us on the weekend of December 8-9, 2023, for what promises to be an enjoyable start to the holiday season.
