The reason for the existence of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy is to offer the parents and their children a Catholic school, a school where our Catholic beliefs and morals give direction to every part of what happens in the educational program. Our core belief is that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher. Christ is the model of our faculty and the inspiration of our students. Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy is an extension of the work of the Church to spread the teachings of our faith, so Christ is in the center of all we do.
Consistent with the mission of our parishes, our school strives to spiritually form your child by helping them…
To know Christ: through formal religious instruction as well as through the integration of our faith dimension into each and every academic subject area and extra-curricular activity.
To love Christ: through participation in the sacramental life of the Church, including school Masses every Thursday, as well as through the constant guidance of the Holy Spirit among us.
To bring others to Christ: through our witness as well as in answering the call to serve and help those in need within our community and abroad.
