In addition, students complete one semester of student teaching and enjoy many opportunities to observe experienced education professionals, thanks to our connections with nearby private, charter and public schools.

Education with a Biblical Worldview
At the heart of a Grace education are academically challenging courses that are specifically designed to foster a thirst for character, competence, and service within the hearts and minds of our students.
