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, having now been in operation for over 35 years, Grace Academy has more than 250 students in grades Pre-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.
