Our dedicated campus security team, comprised of both students and staff, diligently monitors our well-lit campus around the clock.

Chapel serves as a pillar of our campus community, providing a sacred space for collective worship and spiritual growth. At Grace, we prioritize spiritual development through three weekly chapel events, commencing at 9:45 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. While attendance is mandatory for all students, allowances are made based on each student’s class load. Off-campus students are required to attend chapel only on days they have classes directly preceding or following the service.
