The classical curriculum at Grace Academy is rich and academically challenging, taught from a Biblical worldview. The Grammar Stage, grades K through 5, is characterized by instructional methods such as singing, memorizing, and reciting as students lay a firm foundation of the facts in each subject they study.  Study of the structure of language is emphasized, including Latin, which is introduced in the second grade. The curriculum for the Logic Stage, grades 6-8, is designed to teach students how to analyze, reason, question, evaluate and critique through the study of Logic, the art of arguing correctly, and more critical thinking and deeper analysis in all subjects.

Throughout both of the grammar and logic stages, other content unique to the classical approach includes the interdisciplinary study of literature and history. Taught within the framework of a Biblical worldview, history is taught chronically from Creation to today in each of the stages above.
