My twins started kindergarten at Grace and are in their senior year now! Every campus at Grace is special! I was an elementary classroom teacher in public schools for 4 years, and it was important to my husband and me to have our kids attend a school where the teachers are free to teach Jesus at the same time they are teaching them reading, writing, math, science, and etc. The teachers and staff at the campuses are all wonderful and helped us to reinforce the foundation in Christ that we were instilling at home and gave our kids a wonderful foundation in education that has been built upon at every campus. One special memory we will always cherish from our time at the elementary campus is the first day of school when my daughter was in 2nd grade, she came home and told us she prayed with her teacher that day to ask Jesus to be Lord and Savior of her life. We highly recommend Grace Community School, all campuses!

When we moved to the area three years ago, we found GCS extremely friendly and accepting of our two children. The academics are solid and we really wanted an education rooted in the Scripture. I''ve never seen a school more committed to teaching "Christianly" than GCS.
