Grace Academy recognizes the value of single-sex education for girls.
Students interested in Grace Academy can enroll in our two week Rising Star program. The objective of the program is to prepare incoming students for the rigors of the Grace Academy school day while instilling the core values. By the conclusion of the two-week program, students must demonstrate:
Growth in math, reading and writing
Improved ability to speak in public and make presentations in a clear, concise and confident manner
Positive behavior conducive to the moral and ethical philosophy developed at Grace Academy with its partners.
Academic progress is only one of the criteria that we review when deciding on an applicant. A great Grace Academy candidate has a positive attitude, the potential to succeed in an academically challenging environment, and possesses a curiosity and commitment to her studies. The ideal candidate also has the desire to pursue extracurricular activities, serve others, and show a desire to grow and mature outside the classroom. Enrollment in the fifth grade is contingent upon successful completion of the Rising Star program.
