Grace Prep’s Living Letters Event!

racetracksmallHey Faithful Fan of Grace Prep,

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 a Live Auction. 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.

Here’s what you can look forward to……

6:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. Fun Center Games & Silent Auction

7:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Welcome & Buffet Dinner

7:30 p.m. -8:00 p.m.- Sharing Our Living Letters

8:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. – Live Auction

8:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m. – Program Concludes

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.

Remain faithful!

Changing Education Paradigms

Why don’t we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies — far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity — are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. It’s a message with deep resonance. Robinson’s TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? “Everyone should watch this.”

Grace Prep Presents “The Race To Nowhere”

On April 24, 2012 Grep Prep High School sponsored a public showing of Race to Nowhere at the State Theatre in State College, PA.  Race to Nowhere is a documentary that points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace; students have become disengaged; stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.
