“GracePoint is more than a school, it is a community,” says Joy Wood, head of school. “We are intentional about ensuring that our students reach their full potential and develop into life-long learners, as well as understand God’s purpose for their lives.” GracePoint is a transition school for students with dyslexia in grades 1-8, where students are typically enrolled for three to four years. The school offers a comprehensive transition program in order for each student to return to either a public or private school environment after remediation.
Students are taught utilizing the Orton-Gillingham method, which is woven into all subject areas. Students receive an hour of specific reading instruction daily by a certified Orton-Gillingham teacher; the student-teacher ratio for reading is 5:1, while all other classes have a student-teacher ratio of no more than 8:1. “With a low student-to-teacher ratio and highly trained educators, our students are successful and confident,” Wood says.
