Welcome to Grace Academy
Grace Academy is a classical Christian school located in Boone, North Carolina, serving students in grades K-8.
While not affiliated with any particular church or denomination, Grace Academy is distinctly Christian in its worldview. Its doctrinal commitments are consistent with those expressed in the early ecumenical creeds of Christianity and those arising out of the Protestant Reformation of the 16th and 17th centuries.
From its beginning in 2008, Grace Academy has defined its educational approach as “classical,” following the form of education described by Miss Dorothy Sayers in her 1947 essay,“The Lost Tools of Learning.” This approach embraces both a proven methodology, tailored to a child’s development, and an educational content which prepares the student to understand, articulate, and critically engage the many ideas that have shaped Western civilization.
The class schedule consists of three essential parts – the school classroom, the home classroom, and the extended learning classroom. Professional teachers present lessons in the school classroom Monday and Wednesday. Families can choose to complete school assignments on the remaining days of the week in either the home classroom or the extended learning classroom. On home classroom days, parents oversee the completion of school assignments that reinforce and extend lessons. In the extended learning classroom, teachers oversee the same assignments at school.
