I’ve been a student at Grace for about 3 years and I can honestly say I love it. I initially chose Grace because of how close it was to home and how inexpensive it was. The reason I chose to stay, however, was because of the great people that make Grace an amazing experience. Grace really makes an effort to make students feel welcomed and at home. This is a wonderful community and it has opened many doors of opportunity for me. Thanks Grace!
