Mission Statement:

The mission of GRACEPOINT School is to equip dyslexic students with the skills needed to develop into independent and confident learners, through sequential, systematic and multisensory instruction. Our goal is to instill in each child a lifelong desire for growing in wisdom and gaining knowledge of the Lord so that each may fulfill God's purposes and bring glory to Him.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: GRACEPOINT welcomes families from all faith traditions, believing that God has given each of us talents and abilities to use for His glory. We believe that all students given the right opportunities and techniques can be successful learners. We believe that students can develop their talents and leadership qualities while learning. We believe that our students will progress by incorporating a multi-sensory approach to learning and being prescriptive in planning for each individual student. We believe in being open to the power of the Holy Spirit as we instruct our students in truth and love. We believe that our students will be more than able after completion of the program to transition back into public/private educational opportunities.
School History: The first seed of GRACEPOINT was planted in 2012 when 2 mothers, Molly Holm and Angie Strack both found themselves searching for the best school to serve their dyslexic sons. As overwhelming as starting a school seemed at the time, with the leadership of Brenda Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Georgia Educational Training Agency, the doors of GRACEPOINT opened just 6 months later with a mere 4 students. GRACEPOINT is in its 8th year with an enrollment of 123 students. Ms. Holm serves GRACEPOINT as a board member and Ms. Strack as the Middle School Director and a Morphology teacher.
