According to the State of Pennsylvania, it takes $13,653 per school year to educate one student. At Grace Prep, we do it for $8,600.
Why? We believe in being good stewards of our resources. Over 50% of our students receive financial aid and, as stated in our Point of Grace #38, “we believe that families that can’t afford Christian education sometimes need it most.” How? Through creative and efficient use of our time and materials, and the faithful support of our Grace Prep fans, who we love to spend time with.
On Thursday, September 29, 2016, we’ll be hosting our Living Letters Event at Tussey Mountain Resort and we need your help! This is our primary Fund-Racing opportunity for the year. Living Letters 2016 is an adults-only evening, so leave the kids at home and come out and enjoy an adrenaline-packed night of free go-karts, batting cages, a driving range, mini golf, and good food. It will include a silent auction with a variety of gift baskets to bid on. And then, for the finale, you’ll get to hear from our very own living letters, including current and former Grace Prep students, parents, and teachers, sharing their own stories of how Grace Prep has impacted their life.
There are three ways you can help:
First, we’re asking you to prayerfully consider who you could invite to join us for this evening of fun and furthering the mission of Grace Prep. The evening will conclude with an opportunity for our guests to prayerfully and financially partner with the work God is doing at Grace Prep.
Second, we’re looking for table hosts. Table hosts are asked to fill a table with eight adults who might partner with Grace Prep through prayer and giving.
Finally, we’re looking for table sponsors. Table sponsors are asked to contribute $250 to pay for the table so that all of our guests can come free of charge. Please respond to Christa Oelhaf at 724-513-4377 or via email at email@example.com by August 26th if you are able to attend or host or sponsor a table. Please RSVP to Christa as soon as possible, as seating is limited and seats are first come first serve.
In true Grace Prep fashion, it will be a night to remember and a night you won’t want to miss. Though we may be a little biased, we believe we teach the most amazing students in the world, and we can’t wait to share our stories with you.

You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.- 2 Corinthians 3:3
