THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — TRIANGLE NC | VOLUME 17 — ISSUE 1 78 GRACE Christian School When families at GRACE Christian School are asked what they like best, overwhelmingly their responses include "loving, challenging, caring and warm." From the first greeting, to the state-of-the-art campus, these adjectives accurately describe GRACE. Dedicated teachers encourage students to grow and develop through experiential teaching methods. GRACE offers the advantage of small class sizes, a technology driven curriculum and a rigorous course load that challenges students through faith-based Christian principles. GRACE is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement.

St. David's School St. David's School's prestigious academic reputation is enhanced by the way it answers the question Aristotle posed centuries ago: "Ought education to be directed more towards the intellect or towards the character of the soul?" Chairman of the Board Joe Knott answers that question by explaining that "St. David's School is not an 'either-or' choice; it is a 'both-and' proposition." St. David's students graduate as critical thinkers who embrace who they are as whole people. Students do not have to check their faith at the door to engage academically, and conversely, they do not have to leave behind academic excellence to engage spiritually.

We strive to help produce the mind of Christ in our students and establish a well-grounded biblical world view.
