Grace Church has long been committed to Christian education, rightly noting that it is through education that knowledge can turn to wisdom under the Word of God. Many students today face uphill battles in their formative school years as too often what they receive in education is a world away from wisdom. The elders of Grace Church understand the concerns of families as they endeavor to find viable education alternatives that accentuate rather than contradict the influence of Christian parents. For it is parents whom God has instituted as the primary teacher of wisdom to their children. Yet, obedience to the biblical commands on parenting (Deut. 6:7; Prov. 23:13; Eph. 6:4) can look many different ways in regards to education. And so, different education options are preferable to different Christian families. In considering these challenges and needs, Grace Church is involved in several important educational programs that provide multiple pathways to raising children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. For the 2023-2024 school year, Grace Church is leading three exciting schooling options:
Historically, parents had to choose between public schools, private schools, or homeschool. In fall 2022, Grace Church launched Grace Academy, an innovative schooling model combining the best elements of private Christian education and homeschooling. Grace Academy is currently halfway through the first academic year and will begin enrollment very soon for grades K–10 for the 2023/24 academic year. Grace Academy's inaugural year has been very successful and a blessing to the families and staff involved.

Since 1998, Legacy Christian Academy has earned a reputation for being a faithful Christian school that offers a premier education, with notable awards including a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence designation and national rankings for academic achievement.
In response to Grace Church’s leadership and initiative for Christian education, Legacy Christian Academy approached the elders of Grace Church in last year to consider providing oversight and leadership for Legacy moving forward. Accordingly, Grace Church responded with eagerness to this opportunity to preserve Legacy’s impact for Christian education, with Legacy Christian Academy in the process of coming under the leadership of Grace Church.
For families looking for a full-time private Christian school with an excellent academic reputation, Legacy Christian Academy is an attractive option.
Faith Christian School, led by Rick and Julie Simpson, provides a homeschool option for families of Grace Community Church. Successfully operating for many years, this option offers one day a week of on-site co-op instruction led by parents, support groups for moms, chapel time, record keeping, curriculum guidance, and field trips.

These multiple educational programs provide a rich variety of options for our families to consider how best to instruct their children. In spite of many challenges, it is heartening to witness an enthusiastic commitment by Christian parents to their God-given responsibility to raise children well before our Lord. Effective, biblical education requires nothing less than steady parental involvement in the worthy task of shepherding children into greater knowledge and commitment to Christ by God’s grace, and Grace Church looks forward to partnering with families in this worthy work ahead.
Partnering with families to provide accessible, professional, Christian education.
