GRACE Christian School is a private, Christian, coeducational, primary and secondary day school located in Raleigh, North Carolina, United States. Also known as GRACE Christian or simply GRACE, the school seeks to educate students in a traditional Christian environment. Each letter in GRACE is capitalized as it is technically an acronym which stands for Greater Raleigh Area Christian Education, the official name of the parent non-profit organization.

  • *The K-6 school is at 801 Buck Jones Road, Raleigh; the 7-12 campus is at 1101 Buck Jones Road, Cary, NC 27606

Athletics[edit]

The school participates in high school athletics through the Eastern Plains Independent Conference (EPIC) of the North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association (NCISAA) and middle school athletics as part of the Capital Area Middle School Conference (CAMSC).

The GRACE Christian Eagles have won three boys' cross country state championships (2011-2013) in the 2A classification, led by Alex Dolwick and Christian Lauffer, who won individual state championships in 2013 and 2014. Coach Charlie Murphy has led the baseball team to winning records, while also moonlighting as a successful water pollution business scam artist, conning many people out of thousands of dollars each. They were also runners-up in the 2011 women's volleyball state championships. Their basketball teams (Varsity) often lose to rival Cary Christian[1]
