The entire Grace family comes together every Tuesday for chapel. To build relationships and foster friendships, our oldest students are paired with our youngest students as chapel buddies. Each class will lead chapel once during the year, and parents are always invited to join us. PreK and Kindergarten meet quarterly for a special praise service geared for young children, and middle school students meet for devotions and praise every Friday.
We believe in a well-rounded education that strengthens the mind and body. Students participate in art, music, library, health, and P.E. Technology is integrated into the curriculum, and computers are used daily. All resource classes are taught by teachers who specialize in their field.
Quest is a pullout enrichment program for students who excel academically, demonstrate responsibility, and think creatively. Students meet once a week and participate in a project- based curriculum that encourages teamwork while allowing students to pursue individual interests.
Clubs and Intramurals
Starting in elementary school, students can participate in afterschool clubs and intramurals. Led by teachers and volunteers, clubs meet monthly and allow students to try new activities and find new passions. Middle School students can run for a position on Student Council or join Excel, a service club sponsored by the Downtown Exchange Club of Jacksonville. Advanced art classes and a spring play presented by the Middle School Drama team allow our students to grow through the fine arts.
Starting in 4th grade, students can show their leadership and love for service by joining safety patrol. Patrol members work with the principal to help our youngest Eagles arrive safely in class.
5th and 6th grade students have an opportunity to join GLOW, a worship team that takes a leadership role in our chapel services. Members of GLOW work together to enhance our worship by presenting skits, creating videos, and using blacklight performances to share the love of Jesus.
School begins at 8:30 and ends at 3:00. Morning care is available starting at 7:00 a.m., and our afternoon extended care program closes at 6:00 p.m. Parents of VPK students who need a full day preschool program can enroll in Encore. Monthly rates apply.
