Families can increase availability for ministry, business, or travel.
Families can develop student’s God-given gifts and talents.

>Q: How is Grace and Glory different from a California charter school?
>A: There are many differences….the top 3 are:
1 – CA charters are a public-school homeschool system, which accept government funds. Your child is considered a public school student, tracked, monitored, tested, and must be taught according to state standards, following state laws and health requirements for public education. Grace and Glory is a California private school and does not accept public funding.
2 – Because CA charter students are public school students, – under CA State Constitution Article 9/Section 8, students are not legally permitted to receive religious instruction or utilize religious materials while enrolled.
[even if parents purchases these materials, it is not legal to use them]
Grace and Glory students may legally receive religious instruction, using religious materials.
3 – Charter School students remain under the control and supervision of a certified teacher [this can be referred to as an Educational Supervisor, Educational Facilitator, Educational Consultant, etc.] who checks on instruction and progress regularly. Grace and Glory students are under the authority of their teaching parent.
>Q: Are Grace and Glory parents solely responsible for their child’s educational instruction?
>A: Parents are required to be in charge of atleast 51% of their child’s education at home or online. Support Groups, Co-Ops, outside classes/Tutors may be used for “select” subjects, enrichment and supplements.
>Q: Which school subjects are required to be taught?
>A: In the state of California, private schools must offer students instruction in the following branches of study: English (including Literature & Writing, Spelling & Grammar), Arithmetic, Social Studies & Geography, Science, Fine Art, Health and Physical Education.
>Q: Are there a required number of educational days/hours?
>A: In the state of California, there are no required number of educational hours for private school students, however, Grace and Glory Academy requires that all students complete between 155-175 educational “school days” (including field trips) per academic year.
>Q: How do families apply for Grace and Glory Academy?
>A: Contact us and arrange a time to meet with our leaders. All families go through an interview and probation period. New families should be prepared to provide a reference letter from a leader in your church.
We desire for all participating families to be bible-believing, church-attending members who agree with our Academy statement of faith.
>Q: Who should NOT apply for Grace and Glory Academy?
>A: Families who do not agree with the Academy Statement of Faith,
Families that want to practice unschooling,
Parents that are not available to oversee their student’s academics,
Parents that are not able to respectfully submit to leadership.
Founders: the Roekle Family
2019/2020 School Theme Verse: Psalms 128:2, “You will enjoy the fruits of your labor…how joyful and prosperous you will be”.
Statement of Faith: We believe there is only One True God, Our Father, The Creator of the Universe, Maker of Heaven and Earth, His Son and our Savior Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and Counselor. We believe in the entire Bible, Old and New Testament to be the inspired, Holy Word of God. We believe in God’s design for marriage, between one man, and one woman. We believe each person is created in God’s image for the purpose of worshipping and serving Him, following His commandments and decrees.
Our Leadership – Michaela Roekle grew up homeschooling from first grade through graduation. Throughout her youth and adulthood, she’s worked in children’s and ladies ministry, and homeschool administration for two schools. Michaela has been married to her husband Brad for 20yrs; they have three children…their eldest who graduated from homeschooling in 2019, their middle who is currently homeschooling in highschool and their youngest in elementary. They have been homeschooling parents for 12 years. In addition to running Grace and Glory, Michaela and her husband serve as Advisory Board Members for CHEA of California (www.cheaofca.org).
We believe each child is a whole person, uniquely created by God and should experience education in a whole-hearted manner for all aspects of life….spiritually, academically, emotionally, mentally and physically. We offer learning experiences as a community to interact with others and explore God’s great world.
Parents legally have the freedom to select faith-based materials and living literature for their students, as we promote the timeless educational methods of Charlotte Mason – a British educator who believed that education was about more than passing an exam or getting into the right college. She said education was an atmosphere, a discipline, and a lifestyle.
Above all, it is our prayer that children graduate from Grace and Glory with not only the abilities, but the desire to read God’s Word, share God’s Word and know Him as their personal Lord and Savior….having exposure to His people, His creation, and His promises for us. May everything we do, be done for the glory of God. [1 Corinthians 10:31]
