About GRACE

Welcome to GRACE Christian School’s website. Our site is designed to introduce our school to families who are seeking an academically rigorous K-12 program taught from a Christian worldview. Our website, also, serves as a significant communication tool for our current school families.

For the 2013-2014 school year, GRACE has an enrollment of approximately 620 students. We continue to experience God’s blessing on our ministry. GRACE has accreditation from SACS/CASI, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Council on Accreditation and School Improvement and ACSI, the Association of Christian Schools International. Our athletic teams compete in the Eastern Plains Independent Conference (EPIC) in the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA). Our Mens’ Cross Country Team is the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Division 2A State Champions.

Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, GRACE introduced a technology program (internally referred to as E4) that provides students in 5th grade through 12th grade a MacBook for school and home use while fourth graders use MacBooks in the classroom. Each K-3rd grade classroom was equipped with SMARTBoard technology. For the 2012-2013 school year, the student MacBooks were upgraded to MacBook Airs, and every classroom in our elementary campus was equipped with SMARTBoard technology. This exciting initiative allows students to advance their education with the aide of the latest classroom technology.

“GRACE Christian School is a loving community that spiritually and academically equips, challenges, and inspires students to impact their world for Christ.” Our Mission Statement indicates that as an educational institution we are committed to preparing our students academically to enter into an excellent college or university of their choice upon high school graduation. We strive to develop students that are mature, highly educated, life-long learners who will lead and impact their world. In the elementary years, teachers emphasize experiential learning that involves many field trips, class demonstrations and labs. Our college prep program, which includes Advanced Placement courses, honors classes, college seminars and college writing classes is designed to prepare our middle and high school students to excel in a high quality academic environment.

As a Christian school, we endeavor to encourage our students to grow in their personal walk with Jesus Christ. GRACE is a loving community that genuinely cares for each and every student in a personal manner. Here, every student has worth and value. Our academic, fine arts, athletic and social programs are designed to challenge and inspire our students to develop their God-given gifts and talents as they develop into the young men and women God has designed them to be.
