G R A C E F E S T was our first annual school-wide fundraiser and opportunity to show support for Grace Academy with an evening dedicated to family, food, fun, and community. 



G R A C E F E S T includes our first Cook-Off Competition, fun carnival games, kids activities, raffles, and auctions.  All chefs, bakers, and foodies are welcome to put their culinary masterpieces to the test and compete for the Fest Chef Award in each category and the overall Best Fest Chef award!  FestChef Contenders can enter in one of 3 categories: THE MEATS & MAINS, THE MAIN DISTRACTION, or THE SUGAR COATERS.  Guests can sample each and vote on their favorite.  While the "winners" in each category go home with bragging rights and glory, the real winners are our students and teachers! All who attend will have the opportunity to participate in our Vanishing Tuition, Parking Spot, and Wine & Dine Raffles and Silent Auction. While the kids and kids at heart will bounce, climb, and play the evening away on inflatable games and rides provided by our generous sponsors. 

*** Sign up as a Fest Chef Contender for FREE until October 8, 2022. Use code CHAMP.  **


All proceeds raised go toward the Grace Academy Annual Fund.  As is common in independent schools, tuition alone does not fully cover the costs of providing an exceptional education. The Grace Academy Annual Fund exists to help supplement tuition revenues and cover the true cost of a Grace education.  Your generous donations provide essential support for the core aspects of our school such as creative programming, robust tuition assistance, and dynamic faculty development. Our goal: $175,000. Any amount above this goes toward the capital campaign to finish funding the gym. 

There are no resources or collections to display

This year can be the year our community comes together , funds the Annual Fund through GRACEFEST, and then focuses on supporting the Capital Campaign for our first gym! Are these lofty goals?  Absolutely. If we have learned anything, it is that we are not afraid to do hard things. By God's grace, our relentless efforts to support this kind of education will change generations to come. But, this can only be accomplished if we all come together! So bring your kids, and invite your friends, family, and neighbors! Enter the cook-off or be a GACEFEST sponsor.  Let's all do what we can and see how the Lord blesses our efforts.
