Their senior year is well under way, and our seniors are very excited to share the opportunity that they are most looking forward to before graduation. From March 8-15, our seniors will be serving with La Mano of Hope in Quito, Ecuador.
Our senior missionary team will be working with La Mano of Hope to support and encourage the community of El Ejército in the Southern Andes region of Quito, Ecuador. Each day they will build relationships and share the gospel with the children of the community while assisting with a local soccer camp. They will also work alongside local pastors as they collect and distribute basic necessity items to the surrounding Quichua tribe. With each day that passes our seniors are growing more excited to go and serve the Lord by caring for these people in a small but crucial way.

On September 22nd, we had our fourth annual Grace Academy golf tournament. It was a great success, as we sold out for the second year in a row reaching 30 teams. This year we raised over $19,500.00. Of that, $6046.00 was raised for the staff Christmas Bonus.
Grace Academy is seeking applications for the 2023-2024 school year for a Substitute Teacher. Substitutes are need for all grade levels. Applicants should be professionally qualified candidates, willing to invest in the lives of their students, and who, by the evidence of their lives, are Christian role models.
Recently the class of 1993 planned their 30 year reunion. One of their classmates, Todd Carver, arranged a tour for the class at the Old Broadway School. It was the first time the class met together in 30 years.
Grace Academy was established on December 1, 1976, in the four-room Downsville schoolhouse. With only five students enrolled, Mary Michael set out to develop a school where academic excellence and Christian character were a priority. Within six years, five students multiplied to over one hundred, and more students called for more space. In 1983, Grace Academy found a new home at the "old Broadway School," giving Grace the room it needed to expand and include all grades from K-12. The '83-'84 school year began with much anticipation as Grace Academy opened its doors to high school students for the first time, and it was in that year Grace Academy would hold its very first graduation ceremony. We recently had the privilege of interviewing Grace Academy's first graduate, Pamela Baldacchino (Crowner).
