Grace Academy has been a wonderful place for our children, now ages 11, 9 and 7. It's academic excellence and biblical standards partnered with loving teachers who get to the heart of students is their central focus. We have been there 5 years and have seen the program immensely move forward positively due to the supportive leadership and staff at the school. The facility is beautiful and maintained with care. Technology is a huge focus with now Smartboards in most every room and online education is a requirement of its 2012 graduates. It is progressive and trying to offer academic rich opportunities for a smaller private school. Yes, a huge sacrafice to educate your kids privately but we only get one chance to raise children as parents. Highly recommended!
As a former teacher, I have only praise for Grace Academy. From the headmaster to the principal to all the teachers, I have great respect. The students seem happy to go to school each day to learn in a loving, Christian environment. I like the rigorous academic standards coupled with their impressive technology program. The extra offerings like Lego Club, Math 24 and Chess Club make it fun for the kids. Their "Christian Soldier" offering each month in which the students recite Biblical passages and poetry from memory is quite impressive. The fact that parents can keep tabs on their child's progress online through Edline is quite convenient. All in all, I think that Grace has earned an A+!
Grace Academy has been changing a lot and changing fast. Teachers are getting more and more professional development sessions and we are continuing to learn and grow in our professions. In the classroom there are hands-on acitivities, centers, high-interest novels, SmartBoards and other technology abounds, student clubs, and so much more are taking place at Grace Academy. The students and teachers are excited to come to school and to learn and grow in an atmosphere centered around God's word and love.
Several years ago, as "still" indicated on their website, they were stressing: "At Grace Academy, we realize that students grow at different rates. We utilize different models to help students grow. We draw upon the excellence and faithfulness of our staff to design reading models for each grade level and classroom needs every year. In designing our instruction, we always ask What is best for kids? " HOWEVER, this philosophy has since gone by the wayside! GA has succumbed to the temptations of the secular world, just as many of the churches of today. We, too, are searching for a CHRISTian school which sees our children as unique individuals and not walking dollar signs.
I have attended Grace Academy for 6yrs and currently am in 11th grade. We recently had an accredidation team from ACSI come to our school. They had almost all positive things to say. They said that the entire student body was surprisingly good.
Overall I believe Grace Academy is a good school. I would like to see more teacher to parent interaction. I should be informed if my child's grades are decreasing...it should not be a surprise at report card time. To be fair, this has happened with one teacher to date. I enjoy the fact that the kids have to wear uniforms. It is frustrating to see the tuition go up each year.
My daughter and son have gone to this school since they started school (8yrs for my daughter and 5yrs for my son). I have seen such great improvements in computer studies/Bible studies. I would like to see more school spirit when it comes to sporting events. After all the school has a great gym/soccer,baseball and softball fields. (Lets become more competitive!) I think the parents also need to become more involved to help improve all areas of the school. I know we pay tuition but, Its a known fact that children learn and focus more if they know their parents are involved.
I tend to agree with the previous parent about the uniforms. I agree they should wear the grace polo shirts, but as for the pants, as long as they are the proper color, I dont see why it matters where they are ordered from. The tuition keeps increasing, and that is frustrating, but the faculty is awesome and my child has learned alot there, including a love of the bible. I think more financial aid is needed, dfinately.
I know this school because I have a daughter that goes there. I really don't think they should have to wear uniforms next year because of how expensive the school already is.
my child has attended Grace for 5 years now & I love it, you will not go into any class room & see the kids ruling the teachers like in publc school, and all of the curriculum is bible based and that is the most important thing to us.
