Our Story

12 years ago, we started to wonder…

What would education look like if we combined faith and character values with a STEM-focused program?

What if we could truly inspire children to become compassionate, thoughtful students eager to engage with and change the world around them? Today, we do that in more ways than ever.

At Grace School, we’re a private school that believes that faith and STEM are not mutually exclusive. From ages 20 months through 8th Grade, we teach our students to think critically, make connections and be unafraid to pursue their ambitions despite their uncertainty.

STEM Education
About STEM

Founded in 1975, Grace School is leading STEM in the Houston area independent/private school sector; not only with a comprehensive curriculum, but with learning tools, technology, inspiration and a teaching staff dedicated to creating unique learning experiences for our students.

In the heart of West Houston, we’ve created an environment where students feel safe to explore, where they’re not afraid to take risks and where they develop the tools to figure out the answer for themselves. We’re preparing them for the future and exposing them to ideas that stretch their minds.

At a Glance

Imagine a school where effort is recognized; where each class is the epicenter of student collaboration. Picture a place where students and teachers will engage in interesting conversation about the refugee crisis long after the school day ends. Imagine a school where students feel safe to explore, where they’re not afraid to be wrong and where they gain the tools to figure out the answer for themselves. This is a typical day of learning at Grace School.
