I attended Grace Baptist Academy from 7th to 12th grade, and I can confidently say that it was the best education and experience of my life. The teachers truly have a heart to serve God and the students. The emphasis of the school is college preparatory, which I have received such preparation from the school, as I have finished my first year at college and was fully equipped for college academics. I am a living example that Grace had fully equipped a person to be ready to face the challenges of college. The academics I received at Grace has helped me and has even surpassed that of most other schools that I have encountered. Grace is an excellent school that strives to equip the next generation of Christians for service to God and the local church.

We have had children at the school for over 13 years. We have seen a steady decline in both academics and caring attitudes among the teachers. They have girls volleyball, and basketball for both boys and girls. It used to be a school where parents were welcome and their input valued. Now parents are merely the ones who pay the bills. None of our children will be attending Grace Baptist Academy beginning Fall of 2006

The core curriculum (Abeka) was excellent; the school basically had a very good educational agenda. My problem, however, was the lack of programs. (The only sports available were volleyball for the young women, and basketball for the young men.) The combining of grades was a bit startling (grades 7-12 were put into one Bible class, grades 9-12 into one government class, etc.) In the first semester, every child in grades 7-12 took a choir class together, while in the second semester drama was taken by the same group. The school is the equivalent of a Catholic school in regards to their discipline system (listening to different genres of music is an offense punishable by nearly two detentions). If you want your child to learn his book smarts, by all means, send him there. But if you want your child to succeed, send him somewhere else (and save yourself some money) ($2000/yr.)

My Children get one on one attention. This is the best thing that has happened to my children. They get a good moral base with a excellent education. My oldest daughter went to school for a year in Maine and is in the seventh grade. She tested at the 9th grade level there. Grace Baptist Academy is one of the Best places to educate your child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
