Grace Christian Center

Tel: (719)846-6133
Grades: K-12 | 32 students
Grace is a non-profit private school offering an advanced academic program thanks to the A Beka Book Curriculum.
We pride ourselves on the excellent academic and social environment we are able to offer students through our independent Bible-based operation.
Stanford achievement tests are administered at the end of each year, showing a consistent two-year minimum gain on public school scores for the same grade level.  Because we maintain high standards of behavior, students feel safe and welcome inside the classrom and out.  Students also receive a biblical education that is non-denominational and is applied to their academics and behaviors in the classroom and on the playground.  We teach students how to respect themselves and each other on a daily basis, which gives all of our students the freedom to learn in a bully free environment.  Registration is open for the 2015-2016 school year.  Call for more information or to visit the school.

School Notes:

  • We understand that public school is a tradition in some families and it's availability is important to others.  However, we also see the difficulties facing students, families, and teachers at public school in regard to misbehavior, bad influences, and a general lack of respect for each other.  This is something that we feel is a major, not minor, problem facing our young people. That is why we are here.  We want to give our children the best education available in an environment that builds their character and gives them a safe place to learn and grow.  In order to build a bright future for our children, they need good influences, good direction, and good examples of the kind of people they should become. 
  • High School students have many opportuinties at Grace to play in sports at the public school, take courses at Trinidad State Junior College, and many other organizations in the community.  We support our students in their endeavors and work with them to help them achieve their goals, both inside the classroom and out. 
  • Students receive a diploma at the completion of High School Credits.  Because we use A Beka Book Curriculum, which is accredited and recognized worldwide, all credits are transferrable to any school or college in the nation. High school Juniors and Seniors who perform well may take concurrent college courses at TSJC for high school course credit which will also apply to their Associates Degree.
