School Reviews

Grace Academy is a small private school that, considering it's size, has a lot to offer: warm family environment, small classes in a college-like schedule, caring teachers who know each student, administration who truly care about the students, a few sports for student camaraderie, performance arts, creative art classes, a chance for every student to feel noticed and be valued for who they are. At Grace, you will find students from many different backgrounds, but what they all have in common is a strong focus on education and their shared faith. Note that student's behavior is expected to be good at all times (it's a small school after all and people notice everything) - but most families feel that's a good thing! We love the idea that there is no "slippage" at this school: the school day is condensed into what would be considered half days at other schools. There are no Friday classes. And the students can still take classes at CPCC in their Junior and Senior years. Our family feels very comfortable here and our children have thrived at Grace Academy.
