CORE PURPOSE

Empower our community to joyfully seek the wisdom and grace of God, discern the truth, and lead with moral 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.

CORE SUBJECTS

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

WEEKLY MASS

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.

INSTRUCTIONAL DAYS

Monday – Friday
8:15 AM – 2:30 PM

FREEDOM FRIDAYS

The whole school participates in life skill, faith, community service, and team building activities.

UNIFORMS

All students wear a black or blue polo with khaki bottoms or for girls, SAGA plaid jumper or skort.

LUNCH

Students bring their own lunch from home each day.

Tuition assistantance may be available to those who need it.

What are Freedom Fridays?

We move from head (wisdom/knowledge) to heart (passion/virtue/purpose).

Students learn life-skills such as sewing on a button, how to compost, using a compass, addressing an envelope, baking homemade bread, chopping wood, caring for farm animals. We become the feet of Christ by serving the community including helping at the local food pantries, visiting the residents at the retirement homes, and doing park clean-up. We deepen our faith life through extended faith enlightenment on Holy Days, visits from those in the religious life, and unique faith experiences like Mass and Stations of the Cross at the Cloisters on the Platte. Both teachers and parents guide students to see the good in the world, outside the classroom, and home. We know and recognize this truth, because God created us in his image and likeness. We believe this wholeheartedly. Our children’s passions and purpose arise from this wisdom. They are confident in who they are and share this edification.

Our Teachers

We are blessed with talented, faithful teachers to guide our children. We now have 26 teachers and staff members which includes full time, part time, teacher assistants, 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.

PARENTS

The Secret of Success

Parents are the most important part of Spirit and Grace Academy. It is the parents who first teach their children virtues, morals, faith and love. We ask parents for continued involvement by joining community circle (all school prayer and announcements before and after school), weekly Mass, educating and guiding your child through volunteering on Freedom Fridays, Rosary Walk Wednesdays, and several parent led committees.

“Those in society who are in charge of schools must never forget that the parents have been appointed by God himself as the first and principal educators of their children and that their right is completely inalienable.” —John Paul II

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.

Proverbs 22:6
