Grace is the best private school in Marion county. I feel that my child is prepared for high school and beyond. Not only is he academically prepared, but he has also had the unique opportunity to be a part of a close school community that reinforces volunteerism and becoming a responsible citizen. What Grace has is unique, you won't find it at other private schools--we are a family.

My two sons both attend Grace Christian School and have for the past 4 years. My wife and I love the fact that the school keeps class sizes small, allows teachers to focus on each child's individual needs, and has the structure and discipline that allows all children to learn. Grace has the fine arts, athletics and academics that we know will lead to our kids being successful in life. We love courtyard and the other school traditions. I highly recommend Grace Christian School to anyone looking for a private school in Ocala / Marion County that will treat every child as an individual and allow them to learn and succeed.

Grace has a differentiated program that meets the needs of the individual student no matter where they are. Nurturing staff provide a well rounded program of academic excellence in a Christ Centered environment. Students are not only taught the core subjects but all children have classes in Spanish, art, music, physical education, technology and as they go up in grades they can participate in a wide variety of ativities. There is an award winning band, athletic program, drama, chorus, and a variety of after school activities. If you want a secure future for your child, Grace is the school.

GCS offers an overall balanced approach to education for the ''whole child''. The school is more that just a building with people, it is a community that works together to sow and reap great things within its walls and beyond. Moving to Ocala, Florida from another state in the middle of a school year could prove to be a devastating change for later elementary and middle school children, yet GCS enveloped our entire family and provided academic, spiritual and social encouragement that has continued to prove great success for our children.

We have had 3 children go all the way through Grace School (K-3 - 8th) and have seen the many changes that have taken place there for over a decade. My children were well taken care of and properly prepared for a competitive HS environment. I''m sorry that someone felt like it was an elite school, there are certainly some that are wealthy, but most struggle to make the financial/educational choice for their child to attend. The preschool and elementary teachers are nurturing, caring and prepare the children well. The middle school is better than most and seems to keep the kids engaged in extracurricular activities while maintaining high academic and personal standards. The teachers, staff, parents and students become like family and overall, our experience at Grace has been wonderful. I will forever be grateful for the positive Christian environment they provided and how they loved and took care of my children.
