Our Mission 

The mission of Grace Academy is to provide guidance, resources, and educational experiences that support and encourage home-centered education.


Our Vision

To create a faith-filled learning community of homeschooling families who understand that their choice of education is a valid, beautiful, and holy one and as such, Grace Academy will provide a secure, orderly, and warmhearted place that will:

  • spark and develop a love of lifelong learning.
  • equip students with strong foundational academic skills.
  • furnish a safe and nurturing meeting space for our affiliate programs.
  • provide information about field trips, cultural events, and community service activities.
  • maintain controlled social opportunities for our children.
  • offer innovatively designed enrichment programs.
  • inspire service, expand minds, and grow faith.

In essence, Grace is a place to know, love, serve and learn.


Our Foundation

The Apostles’ Creed

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.  Amen.


An Ecumenical Calling

Grace Academy was founded by Catholic families and is guided by ecumenical Catholic principles, which should be respected, but need not be accepted. Our classes are open to all students, regardless of religious affiliation.

“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” ― Mother Teresa

 

It is our firm belief that God is eager to see every Christian brother and sister join together to celebrate all that they hold in common.  Jesus prayed that all of His followers “may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You.  May they also be in us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.” (John 17:20)

Saint John Paul II wrote, “Indeed all the faithful are asked by the Spirit of God to do everything possible to strengthen the bonds of communion between all Christians and to increase cooperation between Christ’s followers” (That They May Be One, 101).
