Due to COVID, we enrolled our children at Grace Classical Academy. Both of my children have blossomed at this school due to the small class sizes and amazing teachers. My son who complained about homework in the past has not once put up a fight about doing his homework. He even requested that we never send him back to public school. We are truly thankful for GCA!

My son transferred into the school after being in public school. I have felt for a while that he had some type of learning disability but I couldn`t get any feedback from any of the teachers at the schools he went to. Within two weeks of being at Grace Academy his teacher had a pretty good handle on what the problem was and resolved to getting him help. The drastic change in my son is incredible. This kid went from absolutely loathing school to loving it!

This school is wonderful. Great students, teachers and staff. My kids went from struggling to excelling in less than a year. No worries about online learning either - they are committed to safe, in person school, which my kids definitely needed. One of my children has some special needs and they have gone above and beyond any hopes that I had.

Grace Classical Academy has been more than a blessing for my boys. I have an 8th grader, who began at Grace (formally Oak Grove Classical) in November of 4th grade. He was falling tragically behind in public school and we had to make a change. He was diagnosed with ADD and the 504 plan at public school was doing him no good. At Grace, he was flourishing within weeks with a learning plan that worked wonders for him. So many wonderful caring teachers with an impressive amount of experience with children who learn differently. I can't say how much of s difference the dedication of these teachers and administrators have made in the life of my child. The curriculum is challenging, but the students rise to it and it is amazing what can be achieved. Grace is a wonderful community, that will make you feel welcomed and your child feel loved.

My 1st grader has flourished at Grace Classical Academy. He transferred from public school this year and in one month he was writing in cursive and reading books! I was amazed! His teacher, Mrs. Hansen, and all the administrators and staff have been so wonderful to our family. It's a nurturing environment. The smaller class sizes and individual attention provided just what my son needs to learn and thrive. Thank you, GCA!

Oak Grove is a wonderful school. It is a small school that is able to focus more individual attention on each student. I have one child already enrolled and my other child starting in the fall and would highly recommend Oak Grove to anyone who wants their child to receive not only a top of the line Christian education, but to be a part of loving and nurturing community of teachers, students and staff.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
