New to Grace

Welcome! Our Mission: To assist Christian families in educating, equipping, and encouraging their children to influence the world for Christ.

Welcome to the Grace Community School Family!

Grace Community School is a two-time National Blue Ribbon recipient, recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for high academic achievement. A primary goal of Grace is to provide an outstanding academic education, taught from a biblical worldview. Grace’s education is second to none. Our teachers teach and prepare our children thoroughly – not only for a particular test, or for college admission, but for life.

We hope you will find helpful information and links on this page. If you have further questions, please contact Kayla Franks, Admissions Assistant, at

“My husband met a few GCS high school students when our children were young, and he told me that he wanted our children to turn out like them! There is just something special about a Grace student.”
