We believe in providing education with integrity by eliminating learning gaps. Our admission of a diagnostic test allows us to help a child fill in any learning gaps he or she may have. We also require mastery of new concepts before progressing to new concepts.
We believe that there are 5 basic laws of a learner:
Students must be at subject levels where they can perform.
Students must set reasonable goals.
Students must be controlled and motivated.
Learning must be measurable.
Learning must be rewarded.
These laws guide our entire academic program.
/ THE FIVE LAWS OF THE LEARNER
ABOUT GRACE ACADEMY
GRACE ACADEMY is a Bible-based international preparatory school serving K4-12 grades. We also accept international students of all ages seeking to learn English as another language for Winter and Summer Sessions.
Our individualized program provides the freedom to children to learn at their own paces insuring that no one gets left behind and students wanting to work ahead are encouraged to do so.
We provide a well-rounded education experience by promoting opportunities and excellence in academics, arts, and character development.
GRACE ACADEMY is also a proud participant in International Student Convention held annually in the mainland. Students prepare all year long to represent Guam while competing with other students from around the globe in athletics, academics, and the arts.
"Formed in the spirit of personal excellence, mastery learning and character development."
We believe the Bible to be the true, accurate, and inspired word of God which is why the curriculum we use is Bible-based. Character training using Jesus Christ as our example, Scripture memorization, and weekly chapel also play vital roles in our education program as we seek to see and understand the world around us with a heavenly perspective.
/ CORE VALUES
GRACE ACADEMY, like many noble endeavors, started out as just a dream. A philanthropic businessman by the name James G. desired to provide quality, Christian-rooted education that prepares students for higher education, quality careers, compassionate citizenship and beyond to the children of Guam and international students from around the world. His dedicated efforts is what has made GRACE ACADEMY become a reality in 2013, and his continued support is what allows it to be a blessing to families who want the very best for their precious children today.
In 2015 Grace Academy was obtained by Providence Intl. Church Ministries. Grace is now Providence Intl. Christian Academy DBA Grace Academy.
GRACE ACADEMY is operated by Pastor Bill and Mrs. Paula Schmidt who together bring over 30 years worth of experience in the field of education.
GRACE ACADEMY is providing quality K4-12 grade education to students from Guam and English education to international students.

/ THE FUTURE
We believe that each child is created as a unique individual with special strengths, abilities, talents and needs. Because of this we tailor-make a learning plan of success for each and every child that will best serve his or her needs. Each child has the opportunity to move at a pace that is right for him with the active involvement of an educational professional who provides one-on-one assistance.
