Early in 1977, the congregation of what is now Grace Bible Church began the ministry of Grace Academy. Construction started in May on a 10,000 sq. ft. educational facility. The Academy officially opened the following September with 85 students in grades K through 6. In 1978, enrollment increased to over 150 students, with grades expanding to include grades 7 and 8. Between 1994 and 1997 Grace Academy experienced a 40% increase in enrollment.
Enrollment has steadily continued and at present, now having been in operation for over 40 years, Grace Academy has more than 375 students in grades Kindergarten through grade 12. The facilities have grown as well. Today there are four educational buildings that include a 14-room educational facility, a computer lab, library/multi-media center, art room, music room, and a 22,500 square foot multi-purpose athletic, fine arts, and educational facility that includes a commercial kitchen that serves hot lunches daily.
