OPPORTUNITY:

 Smaller enrollment provides opportunity. Participation in multiple sports is available and even encouraged.  Athletes that would be “lost in the shuffle” at bigger schools in the area may have the chance to excel at GPA.  

LIKE MINDED INDIVIDUALS:

At Grace Prep our task is to partner with parents to develop students’ spiritual growth and leadership skills through extra-curricular activities. We use athletics as a tool to teach our student athletes the lessons of life.  We use our sport as a method of teaching leadership.  Most importantly, we aid in the spiritual growth of our student athletes.  


Hosea 14:9 “For the ways of the Lord are right, and the upright walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.”
