The Annual Gala
“But from everlasting to everlasting, the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children.” Psalm 103:17
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating our students at GPA. In other words, gifts given at events such as the Gala, on top of tuition, enable Grace Prep to balance the school budget, making up for the shortfall between the actual cost of education and the cost of tuition. In past years, the Gala has allowed us to hold tuition increases to a minimum, therefore keeping the cost affordable for most families. A gift of any amount helps Grace Preparatory Academy continue its commitment to fulfill its mission – helping parents disciple college-worthy character witnesses for Christ.
The Annual Auction
The Auction is an annual dinner, silent auction, and live auction. The purpose of the Auction is to raise money to cover the cost of purchasing a much-needed specific item or items useful for enhancing the education experience at Grace Prep.
Shuttle buses, computer lab equipment, digital overheads, projectors, wall screens for classrooms, accounting software, a beautiful playground, and an alarm and intercom system to ensure our students’ safety as well as protect our school’s physical assets are just a few of the items we have been able to purchase with funds raised over the last six years.
