College Advising

Because we believe that college is a match to be made and not a prize to be won, our work with students is truly about finding the best fit based upon individual preferences, strengths, and goals. We recognize that higher education drastically influences who students will become (spiritually, socially, etc.), not just what they will do for a living.  The purpose of college is not merely vocational training but also the further development of one’s intellect and soul. Thus finding a good fit between student and college is our highest priority as we work with students through the college search and application process.

Over the years, Grace Academy students have been accepted to colleges and universities such as:

Abilene Christian University

Baylor University (Honors Program)

Biola University (Torrey Honors Institute)

Belmont University

Concordia University Texas

Dallas Baptist University

Gordon College

Hillsdale College

While our students’ final measure of success certainly does not lie in the awards they win or the money they are awarded, the class of 2018 was offered nearly $2.4 Million in academic scholarships. Graduates of Grace Academy have earned degrees in various fields including biology, business, engineering, English, and math. Since the first graduating class in 2008, three Grace Academy students have been named National Merit Finalists, and two have been recognized as Commended Scholars.
