Facility We have a large playground, with a “park-like” quality play structure that addresses many areas of physical development, and is used by both the preschool and grade school. We also have three other areas designated for play for the Elementary and Jr. High school. Our Classrooms are developmentally age appropriate from Preschool to Jr. High and meet the needs of the whole child, spiritually, physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, creatively, and with language development, from a Christian perspective.
Grace Christian Schools facility is tucked away in a beautiful tree-lined area that backs up to a nature trail and creek.
