School Notes

  • Your preschooler will learn and grow at GraceWay Academy through music, art, early reading and math skill building, playground, Bible, Spanish, family chapel, library, and engaging learning centers.
  • Your K - 6th grade student will develop a love of learning through interactive teaching methods that engage students in a meaningful, teacher-guided journey of discovery. They will focus on digging deep into "How?" and "Why?" questions that spark their curiosity and encourage critical thinking in a natural way that flows from classroom activities. Elementary students enjoy core academic subjects such as Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, in addition to Spanish, Bible, music, physical education, art, recess, library, and family chapel. Technology is included in ways that increase learning. Before and after school programs are available.
