Home School Students

At Grace College, we place a high value on students who have been educated at home.

One of every five students at Grace College has been home schooled.

Grace College also offers home school juniors and seniors (at least 16 years of age) the opportunity to take college classes on campus for credit at a reduced rate through the college's Jump Start Program.
