Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a microschool?
    A microschool is a non-traditional educational setting where students are learning side-by-side with learners of various ages and abilities. Think of it like a one room school house. Microschools have become increasingly popular as government school failure has become more prominent. The students enrolled at Grace Grown Academy are considered homeschooled students or are students who are enrolled in a virtual school program, which allows parents to have more involvement in their child's education.
  • Where is Grace Grown Academy located?
    We are located at Rapidan Baptist Church in beautiful downtown Wolftown, Virginia (Madison County) and serve students in all surrounding counties! For reference, we are: -5 minutes from Sheetz & 6 minutes from Plow & Hearth (Madison) -8 minutes from The Greene Hills Club & 11 minutes from the Greene County Library (Stanardsville) -14 minutes from Lowe's & 17 minutes from Sheetz (Ruckersville) -20 minutes from CVS (Orange) -23 minutes from The Ole Country Store & Bakery (Culpeper)
  • What is the cost of tuition?
    Tuition rates vary depending on type of enrollment. We offer both full-time and hybrid (part-time) options to meet the varying needs of families. Please contact us for the most up-to-date information - we are currently offering our "Founding Families" a special discount for the 2023-2024 school year!
  • What if I want to enroll my child back into public school in the future?
    We offer an exceptional learning experience that will allow most children to excel beyond typical grade-level expectations. Enrolling your child back into public school is simple, and this experience will not negatively impact their ability to enroll in another educational setting in the future.
  • Will I choose my child's curriculum?
    Lower elementary learners in the K-1st cohort (Littles) utilize the curriculum "The Good & The Beautiful" for core academic skills. Upper elementary learners in the 2nd-4th cohort (Leaders) can either stay with this curriculum or choose the online learning or homeschool curriculum that works best for them. Our teachers build on to the curriculum and provide individual attention, support, and personalized planning for each child and learning style.
  • How are children graded?
    We measure our student progress through portfolios, projects, surveys, reports, and other evidence of mastery. No more stressing about tests and grades because we move forward based on mastery, not age or grade level! If your child is considered a homeschool student, you may opt to take a standardized test or to participate in an educational review to prove progress.
  • Is Grace Grown Academy a Full-Day Program?
    Our program runs from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Academic time is in the morning, with afternoons reserved for open-ended play and enrichment activities. We have options to meet varying family needs when it comes to enrollment! Both 2-day or 3-day options are available for those looking for hybrid (part-time) enrollment as well as a 5-day option for those looking for full-time enrollment. Learners are welcome to join us for as much as or as little of the day as they'd like. There are no attendance requirements or tardiness penalties. We will try to mirror the district calendar for the local schools in our area, however, our calendar may not match theirs exactly since all of the district calendars in the surrounding counties vary slightly.
  • Why choose Grace Grown Academy?
    At Grace Grown Academy, we recognize the need for students to learn core concepts and skills but we also value the importance of allowing children to learn many things beyond the traditional educational experience - something that is often left out or not given much attention in the traditional school setting. We offer small class sizes to promote individualized learning, advocate kindness in all that we do, and allow our students to experience life in a way that fosters the curiosity that occurs during childhood which is SO important! After all, they're only young for a short while!
