Hear from Our Families:

“I have found Mother of Divine Grace School to be a support both academically and spiritually. As a distance learning school, Mother of Divine Grace offers a quality Catholic education that rivals the top local private schools. As our children are each unique and have their own optimal learning style, the individualized classical curriculum offered by Mother of Divine Grace School was instrumental in facilitating their academic progress. We took advantage of Mother of Divine Grace’s Teacher Assisted Program and Learning Support Classes. Our children were able to have a teacher objectively evaluate their progress through phone consultations/conferences and written assignments. This accountability required our children to be responsible in meeting deadlines and in some instances, correcting work and sending it back to the teacher. Mastery of the material was the focus.”
