Affording GRACE

GRACE Christian School is a loving community. This opening phrase of our mission statement says much about our identity. As a community, we join together to celebrate success, confront challenges, and grow together, both inside the classroom and beyond our school walls. Our students are known, valued, and loved by their teachers.

As you will learn during the admissions process, GRACE desires to partner with families to equip your students for life.

GCS Class of 2020

Private, Christian education is an academic, spiritual, and financial investment in your child’s future that requires a big commitment. We understand this and know that the decision to attend a private school does not come lightly. We encourage you to prayerfully consider if GRACE is the best school community for your child. If, having done so, you would like GRACE to partner with you to equip your student for life, please complete our online application.

To facilitate the process, GRACE uses the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment online application for processing requests for Tuition Assistance.
