Impacting for Eternity
The mission of Grace Academy: “Grace Academy impacts students by moving them toward knowledge and wisdom: educating from a biblical worldview for this life; evangelizing and equipping for eternal life.”
Our Motto: “Educating for Life; Impacting for Eternity.”
Grace Academy seeks to make an IMPACT:
Integrity- The man of integrity recognizes that he must have exclusive allegiance to God and does not try to love God and the world at the same time.
Ministry- Grace Academy supports the local church, training students and sending them back into their local churches where they will be able to exercise their spiritual gifts and make a difference for Jesus Christ.
Purity- Purity must first begin with salvation. The redeemed student will seek to live for and love Jesus Christ with all his heart, soul, and mind–resulting in a right and moral life.
Accountability– Accountability requires openness between two or more people who agree to share personal victories and to question one another when they notice sinful tendencies. This is in reality, biblical edification: the ministry of stimulating one another to love and good deeds.
Conformity- It is our desire that every student at Grace Academy live a life of total dependence on God while being conformed to His image.
Teachability- Teachability requires humility; there is always more to be learned than we already know. Learning is a lifelong process; it is a spiritual discipline that characterizes the truly wise person.
The philosophy of Grace Academy is based on the truth of the Word of God, and we believe all things can be understood only in the light of its relationship to God in Christ. We contend that Jesus Christ is the integrating principle of all knowledge because He created and sustains both mankind and the world in which He lives.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is God’s infallible, verbally inspired Word and is our supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
“The philosophy of Grace Academy is based on the truth of the Word of God, and we believe all things can be understood only in the light of its relationship to God in Christ. We contend that Jesus Christ is the integrating principle of all knowledge because He created and sustains both mankind and the world in which He lives.”
Grace Academy is a Christian school with a Christian mission and statement of faith. As a result of this philosophy, mission statement and statement of faith, all students have the opportunity to participate in chapel, Bible classes, and prayer. The Bible is the center of our curriculum and subject matter. Children learn Bible stories and how to apply them, Christian character building, and Scripture memorization.
The Academy holds three different chapel services each week. These services include grades K-3, 4-6, 7-12. Pre-Kindergarten does not participate in chapel services, though parents are welcome to accompany their pre-kindergarten child to elementary chapels. The purpose of chapel is to provide an opportunity for the students to worship God and to grow spiritually. Chapel provides a variety of activities directed toward worship through singing, guest speakers, testimonies, puppets, and storytelling. All parents are welcome to attend any of our chapels.
Grace Academy ministers to local churches by teaching students the Bible and teaching them the importance of serving in their church. The curriculum is designed to teach students the Bible content, interrelation, and application.
The teachers work both individually and collaboratively to ensure that their curriculum includes the spiritual truths that relate to every class they teach. Grace Academy works to take advantage of every opportunity to teach the Bible and to teach it accurately.
Because the students spend so much time at school, they have the opportunity to interact with the godly teachers on a daily basis. Teachers are selected for their desire to impact students both formally in class and informally through relationships. Sports teams, clubs, Student Leadership Council, etc. present opportunities for more interaction and input into the lives of students.
For me, Grace Academy is not a school; it is my home. I know that in times of peace and in times of trials I will always find love and support here.
The Christian worldview that is woven into all subject areas. Every square inch of the universe, including education, belongs to God.
I have one child attending Grace Academy and I couldn't be happier with the results. My child is getting a much stronger education than at the previous private school.
The administration believes that this school is a high priority ministry of spreading the gospel plus having an ever-increasing desire to give the best biblically integrated education.
As a former parent of students at Grace, now a grandparent of current and already graduated students, and as a staff member, I know first-hand what wonderfully gifted teachers are employed at Grace. It is much more than a job to them, it is a calling that they take very seriously.
The school's quality of education is amazing and we have found no other schools comparative in this aspect.
Wonderful education, security for our children. Teach morals and values.
High education level, nicest teachers and staff, Biblical teaching, great security. We have had a great experience with Grace Academy and would not place our children anywhere else unless we were to move far away.
It is a safe environment where she is learning biblical truths along with academics which is so important to us. I have loved both her teachers so far and love how friendly and helpful all staff are.
I believe that all the staff truly care for each student and that the lessons they are teaching them will impact them for the future.
