School Reviews

Grace Academy was one of the best experiences that I have had. As a student, I was challenged in the classroom, on the athletic field, and most importantly in my walk with Christ. The direction, leadership, and guidance that the teachers provided helped to make me the person that I am today. As an alum, I frequently stop by the school to check on teachers and coaches that invested so much into me as a student. I am encouraged to see the growth the school has shown over the last year or two. They are certainly headed in the right direction. I am proud to be a graduate of Grace Academy.
