Hear What Homeschool Students Are Saying
"For my freshman year of college I attended a secular school as a student athlete. It was a huge breath of fresh air when I transferred to Grace College to focus on my faith and academics. I knew from the first day that I could call Grace home because of how welcoming the people were, and how open and passionate they were about their their faith. The teaching and culture at Grace blend seamlessly with my Christian homeschool background, and my faith has matured immensely because of my time here."
