Organization Information

Mission Statement

Covenant Prep (all boys) is working with a team of community leaders to open an all girls' school - Grace Academy - in 2010. Grace Academy and Covenant Prep are members of the highly succesful NativityMiguel Network of schools. Our tuition-free schools serve inner-city students living in the vulnerable neighborhoods of Hartford. The schools provide a rigorous academic program and supportive learning environment, in partnership with students and their families, where motivated students are offered an intellectual, ethical, physical and cultural education.

Description

In the tradition of the NativityMiguel Network of Schools, Grace Academy will:

  • Promote the development of the whole person in a caring, faith-based environment.
  • Engage students in a rigorous, supportive academic program that motivates graduates to succeed in high school and to pursue higher education.
  • Challenge students to use higher order thinking skills, especially critical and creative thought, to adapt to a world of change.
  • Build a strong school community by partnering with the parents, guardians and other caregivers in their child's education.
  • Create role models by teaching students to set examples for others and reach out to the broader community through service.
