Core Values & Student Outcomes

GRACE ACADEMICALLY PREPARES STUDENTS FOR LIFE: GRACE is an academic institution that seeks to equip, challenge and inspire students to love learning, think critically, and apply knowledge, wisdom and understanding. GRACE utilizes diverse teaching methods, experiential learning and the latest technology to prepare all students effectively to succeed in college and career, while impacting their world for Christ. (Proverbs 2:1-11, Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 22:6, Proverbs 9:9-10 and John 17:15,18)

GRACE SPIRITUALLY EQUIPS STUDENTS TO LIVE FOR CHRIST: GRACE encourages each student to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, Christ-like love for others, Godly character, spiritual growth, discipleship and service as a high calling. GRACE students develop a thoroughly biblical world view that will equip them to evaluate and live effectively in their world. (Matthew 16:24-26, John 14:6, Mark 10:43-45, John 12:26, Proverbs 3:5-6 and Colossians 2:8)

GRACE SEEKS TO DEVELOP EACH STUDENT’S GIFTS AND ABILITIES: God has uniquely designed each student with various gifts, and GRACE strives to help its students identify and develop their strengths, and overcome their weaknesses, in order to prepare students fully to live out their faith, pursue their passions, and follow God’s plan for their lives. (Psalms 139:14,16, Ephesians 2:10, Exodus 31:3, Jeremiah 29:11-13, and Jeremiah 10:23)

GRACE IS A LOVING COMMUNITY WORKING TOGETHER IN COMMON PURPOSE: GRACE strives to cultivate a loving community in which each student is valued, nurtured and loved, and is taught to love and respect others. GRACE teachers are mature Christian role models who strive to teach effectively and love each student. GRACE partners with parents in the education and spiritual development of their children and actively encourages parental involvement. (Philippians 2:2-5, Jeremiah 32:39, Ephesians 4:32, I Corinthians 13, Matthew 18:15-16,20, Ephesians 4:29, Galatians 5:23, Luke 6:40, Titus 2:7, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, Psalms 78:4 and Psalms 133:1)

GRACE OPERATES WITH INTEGRITY UNDER GOD’S LEADING: GRACE adheres to biblical principles, demonstrates operational integrity, stewards all available resources, welcomes stakeholder participation, exhibits a Christ-like witness, and seeks God’s leading in all matters. Each trustee, administrator and teacher testifies to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and commits to serve faithfully at GRACE. (Matthew 6:33, I Corinthians 10:31, Proverbs 16:9, and Hebrews 13:18)
