Philosophy & Educational Objectives

Philosophy

Grace Christian Academy seeks to lead students to become fully devoted followers of Christ. The mission of Grace Christian Academy is to first serve God in every thought and deed. And second, to serve families and children by giving them a Biblically-based education centered on a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, imparting a Christian world view, and emphasizing godly character and academic excellence.

Grace Christian Academy exists as an extension of the Christian home. We serve to educate, equip, and encourage the total child – spirit, mind and body – which can only be done in a loving atmosphere where God’s Word is given preeminence and is seen as the basis for all wisdom, all understanding, and all knowledge. Our educational plan is to determine students’ level of development, analyze their abilities and advance their education to their highest potential. We hold to high spiritual, academic and social standards specified in the Bible, both for ourselves and for the future leaders and citizens we are educating.
