Welcome to Upper School from Mr. Bob Ateca, Principal

Grace Baptist Academy Upper School is a setting in which any student can flourish. At the fore front of our program is our gifted, experienced faculty who challenge learners in a comprehensive,college-preparatory environment, using the latest methodology and innovative technology, within a 21st century curriculum, all based on a biblical foundation. The aim of our faculty is to empower students to think critically, problem solve, and analyze information. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to provide personal attention and establish lifelong relationships with their students. 

In addition, our greatest desire at Grace is for our students to find fulfillment in living according to God's Word. To this end, we guide young minds to know and believe His truth, knowing that this truth will lead them to achieve excellence and to find God's 

purpose for their lives. Every day, we plan out activities with the mindset of discipleship, mentoring and prayer. This is accomplished through our Bible courses, mentoring program, chapel and small group setting, all of which enhances each student’s Christian walk. Through these efforts they are taught to respect each individual, help those in need, and to serve others. Each year our students are engaged in their local community, making a difference in the lives of those around them, while also mentoring, guiding, and encouraging their classmates.

Lastly, our students have the opportunity to be immersed in a variety of endeavors in the arts and athletics. In our comprehensive fine and performing arts curricula and in our competitive athletic program, each student has the opportunity to develop an understanding and true passion for the area in which they excel. 

I would like to personally invite you to visit our campus and to experience all that is Grace Baptist Academy. We are very proud of our traditions and so excited about our future!
