School Notes

  • At Grace Academy, being a Christian school does not mean merely that students are required to take a Bible class or participate in a weekly chapel service. Rather it means that every aspect of education, both inside and outside of the classroom, is guided by a Christian understanding of God, human beings, and the world around us. For example, given the nature of the creator God, the ultimate purpose of education is to lead students toward the knowledge, love, and worship of him. Given that the created universe reflects the nature of God, we teach students to view creation as intrinsically good and to study creation with an attitude of inquisitiveness and awe. Given that humans were created by God as holistic beings, students are educated in a way that trains not only their minds but their bodies and hearts as well. Given that all truth has God as its single source, we view knowledge as a coherent whole, and the study of God and his creation through the different disciplines is undertaken as a unified enterprise. Math and science, for example, are not viewed as wholly distinct from the humanities such as literature and history. Rather all the disciplines are taught in a way that recognizes their dependence upon each other and their shared goal of coming to understand the nature of God and his creation.
  • Grace Academy is a classical school in that we pattern our education after the classical model of education which was the dominant educational paradigm from the time of the ancient Greeks up until the end of the nineteenth century. While throughout these centuries education was conceived of and practiced in a number of different ways, there nevertheless were certain core beliefs about education that served as a common foundation for this variety of educational theory and practice. For example, classical education takes the purpose of education to be the cultivation of whole human beings, not just the preparation of students for a particular job or function in society. It is called a "liberal" education because it makes men free: It equips them to live and to continue learning. (The Latin word libermeans "free.") The goal of classical education, in other words, is not to teach people how to do a job but rather to teach them how to be human beings. Given this view of education, classical education values not only students` mental training but their physical and moral training as well, and its goal is to form people of piety and virtue whose physical and mental abilities are directed and controlled by a mature moral compass.
  • At Grace Academy we recognize that no matter how much education we pack into the 13 years that students spend with us, there inevitably will be more that they need and want to learn. Thus while some people in our contemporary society view education as a finite process directed toward a specific goal (college acceptance, a job, financial security, etc.), we view education as an ongoing process that never ends. Thus we strive to equip students with the habits, dispositions, and skills that they will need to keep learning as they adapt to whatever situations they face in our rapidly changing world. We work to develop in them the mental and moral muscle that will enable them to continue growing and flourishing as human beings for the rest of their lives. While it is certainly true (as our graduates demonstrate) that a Grace Academy education is highly beneficial for success in college and for acquiring meaningful and productive jobs, we conceive of the goal of education as something much broader and long-term. We care about the people our graduates become, not only as college students and members of the work force but also as parents, grandparents, citizens, church members, leaders in their communities, and servants to those around them. At Grace Academy we thus are planting educational seeds that will bear fruit for years to come as we equip students to live well and to continue learning for the rest of their lives always for the glory of God.
