What we strive for.

Faith-focused

We center our lives around God’s grace and love. We worship God in daily devotions, prayer, and weekly chapel services. Children learn the story of Jesus’ love for us in religion classes. We put our faith into action in service projects and in the way we live with one another every day.

Academically rigorous

We provide challenging academics in an environment responsive to the unique needs of our students. Through individualized attention and support, our students consistently test well above national averages and are admitted into prestigious, college-preparatory high schools throughout the area.

Service-minded

We teach children to care for one another and for our world. We support and encourage them to be servant leaders, always striving to be an example for others. Whether in the classroom or on the playground, we guide our students as they learn to serve, stand up for each other, and take responsibility for their actions.

Testimonials

Grace has been an amazing school for my three children. We have found that the school is very collaborative and parents, students, teachers, and other staff work towards maximizing the student experience. There is a focus on hard work, character, and faith development and all staff is there to make sure no one slips through the cracks. The teachers love what they do and bring energy, compassion, and excellence to the classroom. I am blessed to have found this wonderful school for my children.

Marni, parent

Grace offers a loving and nurturing school environment for its students. From faith formation and character development to Christian teaching and challenging academics, we really couldn’t ask for a better school for our kids. The extracurriculars are outstanding as well, with music offerings, no-cut sports and after-school enrichment programs. But probably what we enjoy the most is the family-like community that is Grace.

Esther, parent

Even though we live in a highly regarded public school district, we have never regretted the money we give to send our kids to Grace. My husband and I are both teachers ourselves and can’t say enough about having our kids in an environment that is small enough to individualize instruction, tend to their spiritual selves, and encourage their participation in everything from basketball to handbells. I can’t say enough about the top-notch teachers who set high standards while also loving our kids fiercely.
