“Thanks to Mother of Divine Grace and its caring and supportive consultants and teachers, our children are flourishing both academically and spiritually. [My son] has truly become an active learner and an independent thinker. Additionally, though no less important, his faith life has also flourished. He regularly shares what he learns with other teenagers and even occasionally helps in teaching our parish’s religious education program. All of our children are very active in our church and our oldest is often one to take a leading role due to strong communication skills. All those schooling years full of narrations, copious number of books, and challenging papers have led him to become quite a strong analytical thinker who can express himself confidently in almost any situation. Even my husband and I have grown through our years with Mother of Divine Grace School. At one time, we viewed our children’s success in life based primarily upon their academic achievements. Now, we realize there is so much more to that picture. Not only have our children been able to grow academically with this program but they have also become better individuals both in our family and as examples to others. They are clearly growing in their faith life and are learning what it means to truly be a child of God.”
