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. Spiritual Development represents half of our mission and includes character as well as behavior. Students are challenged to follow Christ and become like Him. Daily Bible class and weekly chapels are the primary avenues of spiritual training, but the Bible is integrated throughout the curriculum. Likewise, all the faculty are committed to guiding the students toward maturity.
Grace Academy trains young people so that they are able to succeed in the area of God’s calling. Those who are college-bound are given the training they need to be accepted to the school of their choice and succeed once they arrive. Our faculty offer continuous encouragement to students so they grow intellectually. Our current course catalog may be viewed here. Those who enter the military or the workforce upon graduation are likewise trained for success.
A school like Grace Academy offers the best opportunity for students to be involved with clubs, athletics, leadership, and fine arts. With a smaller student body, virtually everyone may participate in the activities of their choice and develop skills that will be useful later in life. The students receive excellent coaching and training. Our choirs and drama productions are first-rate.
Students have the option to participate in athletics with the WIAA in soccer, volleyball, basketball, golf, cross-country, and track.
Students have leadership opportunities through the Student Leadership Council and the Grace Academy chapter of the National Honor Society. There are several clubs as well. There is a book club (Knights of the Granite Table) and a Spanish club.
Grace Academy sponsors a Historical Tour of Great Britain and Normandy every other year. All high school juniors and seniors are invited to participate providing that they are not on academic or behavioral probation. Those that have been able to take this trip have said it was the highlight of their high school experience. The next trip is planned for March 2017.
