Grace Christian Academy’s Upper School uses a modified block schedule. By more closely resembling the daily schedule students experience in college, we aim to ease that transition by varying the instructional activities offered on a regular basis. Students are on a traditional seven period schedule for three days a week, and block schedule for two days a week.
Another unique feature is our weekly Beyond The Classroom (BTC) program. This forty-minute period provides training in the “soft skills” that can easily be overlooked in a traditional curriculum. This may involve training in Microsoft Power Point or Excel, digital citizenship, learning a culinary art, or even wrestling with topics like anxiety and depression from a biblical standpoint. As students continue through the Upper School we seek to ensure they are intellectually disciplined, culturally engaged, and spiritually devoted.
