Imagine a School

WHERE the defining characteristic is love for Christ and others that is evident the minute parents, students, staff members, and strangers enter the building.

WHERE children learn at the feet of teachers who are dedicated to seeing students grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man.

WHERE students receive an outstanding education; not just learning facts or how to perform well on a test, but rather how to use their minds to explore truth and to unlock the mysteries of God’s creation.

WHERE the whole student is developed according to his or her gifts, talents, and passions and equipped to discover and live out God’s unique purposes for his or her life.

You don’t need to imagine; this Christian private school exists across two campuses in the heart of Tyler, Texas.

“Dakota has thrived at Texas A&M University both academically and spiritually. The math and science foundation that he received thru Grace has enabled him to be especially successful in his Civil Engineering curriculum, while his fine arts and athletics experiences helped build a healthy, God-based confidence over the years.”

Elementary School

Viewing life from the Creator’s perspective.

For 40 years, Grace Elementary School students have been educated from a Christian worldview – not just personal relationships and character, but in math, science, art, music, social studies, reading, and language arts.

Middle School

Navigating life’s most curious years.

The middle school years mark an amazing transition in a child’s life. The transition can be challenging, as minds and bodies grow from young children to adolescents. The Grace Middle School program is designed to meet children where they are, and to prepare them for this time of dramatic development.
