Why Choose Grace
For over forty years, Grace School has provided a distinctly Christian education to students from Preschool through 12th grade on three different campuses in the heart of Simi Valley, California. Home to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley is well known for its conservative family-oriented environment and is ranked as one of the safest cities for its size in the country. When asked why parents choose Grace, amongst their first response is a desire for their student to be educated in a loving environment.
Students at Grace are free to safely explore their spiritual growth and understanding. Largely ignored in the field of education today, an individual’s spiritual growth is vital to their future well-being and happiness. Instructors at Grace are all mature followers of Jesus Christ, who desire to share their faith as they educate their students. Yet, because the Christian faith teaches patient love and understanding for all, students are free to develop spiritually at their own pace.
Freedom of thought is vital to the culture at Grace as well. Grace School accepts no federal or state funding, and is therefore free to decide what to teach and which curriculum to use. Our goal is to expand the minds of young people by combining the most cutting-edge teaching methodologies along with traditional teaching modalities to academically prepare the next generation. In this way, instructors freely pray with their students, play with their students, cry with their students, and sometimes even hug their students; sharing the joys of life and laughter that are a real part of community living. Intimacy of this type has been stripped from the educational landscape, but at Grace, we relish in the ability to partner with families in a supportive environment that engenders real relationship.
Welcome to Grace!
With my husband and I both being in the education field, finding the right preschool for our son was important. We were looking for a place that was going to allow him to be inquisitive and adventurous while teaching him the skills to be a well rounded individual. With Grace School, we found much more! He has grown leaps and bounds in the past year, not only academically but socially and spiritually.
The teachers have created a place for them to grow, learn, and explore the world around them. Their play-based curriculum fit the needs of our son perfectly. We could not be happier with our choice. - Jenn Strickler
