We believe every student should seek the wisdom and grace of God, discern the truth, and believe with courage.

Spirit and Grace Academy is rooted in the Catholic Faith where parents are the primary educators and involved through volunteering in a variety of ways. Classes are instructed to encourage hands-on work, critical thinking, and problem solving.


Rooted in the Catholic Faith

Spirit and Grace Academy tailors the curriculum to prepare our students to be successful in core subjects, deeply understand their Catholic faith, and broaden their education through exploratory Freedom Fridays, equipping our students to think critically and problem solve.

Our students are enrolled through the Nebraska Homeschool Rule 13. This rule applies to all “home schools” and allows parents to educate their child at home or with a group of families by electing not to meet State approval or accreditation requirements.


Religion, Math, Social Studies, Health, and English Language Arts. Additional subjects include Science, History, Foreign Language, Leadership, Art, Physical Education, and Wellness.


Once per week, we start the day with Mass at St. John the Evangelist in Valley, NE followed by thirty minutes of adoration and reconciliation.

What are Freedom Fridays?

By way of patience, hard work, service, and ingenuity students develop a sense of the natural world on Freedom Fridays. Parents and teachers together guide and model our children through their hands and hearts. Organically, this leads students to see the true, good, and beautiful in the world. We form students to be good Catholic citizens and continually strive for Sainthood.

Our Teachers

We are blessed with talented, faithful teachers to guide our children. We now have 22 teachers and staff members which includes full time, part time, teacher assistants, an office manager, and Director of Curriculum.

SAGA is always searching for high character, Christian teachers and staff. If a specific job is not available now, please contact us.


The Secret of Success

In addition to following the Lord’s teaching and the Holy Spirit’s guidance, parent involvement is key to the success of our school and our students.


We encourage volunteering at lunch/recess and helping with our Freedom Fridays.


We have monthly parent socials to continue to build the connection within our school community.

School Community

We feel it is important to foster a sense of community within the school and between different classes. The entire school gathers for community circle to start and end each day. Additionally, we have opportunities for students to grow in their leadership skills through various projects, initiatives, and mentoring younger students. There are many ways for our students to learn from and interact with those not in their exact age group.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not
depart from it.
