About the Initiative

The “Forever Grace Initiative” at Grace Christian School of Ocala aims to expand our facilities due to unprecedented growth and increasing demand in the Ocala area. This expansion will allow us to accommodate more students and enhance our educational offerings, ensuring a blend of academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment. 

The initiative started in spring 2022, targeting a $4.5 million fundraising goal for Phase 1, which involves constructing a new building for preschool through 4th grades.

A Vision Taking Shape

Our current facilities have served us well, but they can no longer accommodate the growing number of students seeking a transformative education at Grace Christian School. The Forever Grace Initiative will bring our vision of a modern learning environment to life. Imagine bright, spacious classrooms equipped with the latest technology, dedicated spaces for fostering creativity and innovation, and inspiring spaces for collaboration and exploration.

Investing in a Bright Future

The Forever Grace Initiative is a chance to leave a lasting impact. Your contribution, no matter the size, will be instrumental in shaping the future of Grace Christian School. Together, we can build a school that inspires, empowers, and propels our students towards a bright future.
