Overview

Overview

Grace Church School says

Grace Church School aims to establish in its students firmly rooted confidence in themselves and their abilities. Because we believe that the early school experience sets the foundation for lifelong intellectual and social growth, we strive to develop in each child mental keenness, physical confidence, pleasure in learning, and the skills basic to understanding one's self and the world. Our structured curriculum, enriched with broad opportunities for creative expression, assumes as fundamental the mastery of a specific range of academic skills, especially the ability to express one's own ideas and to appraise those of others. Yet the educational goals of the school are broader than intellectual and social development. We nurture in our students a steady, affectionate trust in themselves and their world, made resilient by the interaction of different ethnic, religious, and socio-economic influences. We strive to help each child develop an active ethical consciousness, supported by close acquaintance with Judeo-Christian beliefs and enhanced by the beauty and faith inherent in Grace Church. We encourage a mutually supportive relationship between family and school. We aim to have children leave Grace Church School with a strong sense of self, able to think clearly, function well academically, and embrace coming challenges with confidence.
