The Grace Parent Association was established to improve campus communication and to enhance a positive school-wide atmosphere. Their goal is to encourage and provide opportunity for our families to become vibrant school supporters through their words and actions. This active group of parents works with the administration to identify and coordinate volunteer opportunities for parents. 

Jason & Lisa Smith will continue this year as GPA Co-Presidents. Both attended Grace Academy when the school opened its doors in 1985 and are alumni. They have 2 children enrolled at Grace.

Chris Fisher will be GPA's Treasurer and Jackie Fisher will be serving as the GPA Secretary. Chris & Jackie have 4 boys. After 10 years of homeschooling senior Josh and junior Zack, Grace Academy has been a blessing in challenging the boys to continue to excel academically while offering them much greater independence. They have also been blessed by the sports programs at Grace, particularly the football program. The coaches care about their players and about what is going on in their lives, and inspire them to excel both on and off the field. They are so thankful for all the teachers at Grace and how they unselfishly pour into their kids. That’s one of the reasons why Chris & Jackie are in the GPA - to give back and say “Thank You”.  Chris and Jackie can be reached at or cell phone 423-834-2366 (Chris) & 423-834-6065 (Jackie).
