The church continues to grow and expand its various ministries not only in the community and surrounding areas but also globally as well.  Established over 35 years ago, Grace Baptist Church seeks to meet the spiritual needs of its members.  Our school is part of this endeavor offering a balanced program geared to preparing young people for college.  Using the Word of God as a foundation for academics, we strive to teach the students to be Christ-Like in all areas in their lives.  Partnering with parents is vital to this endeavor, and we accept the challenge to help prepare and impact our students for future success in their lives.
