Upon closer examination, you’ll discover what characterizes Grace’s University Model® education. You’ll get a glimpse of the heartbeat of Grace. We are, in fact, a unique private Christian school that utilizes a university-type schedule as well as a teacher-parent integrated instructional approach to produce a high level of academic achievement while enabling strong ties between parents and their children. Two proven elements of educational success — the professional classroom instruction of a teacher and the caring, highly individualized, at-home mentoring of a parent — blend as a single, unified, college-simulated program.

At Grace, teachers and parents serve together as co-educators, offering the best opportunities for educating as well as equipping students with leadership and independent learning skills necessary for success in their post secondary education as well as in the vocational marketplace!

Other proven elements of the school’s program include character education, low student/teacher ratios, hands-on learning, a strong work ethic, an effective college-preparatory curriculum, character-building student activities, and servant-minded local operation and management.
