Our Mission...Our Story

The mission of GRACEPOINT School is to equip dyslexic students with the skills needed to develop into independent and confident learners through sequential, systematic, and multisensory instruction.  Our goal is to instill in each child a lifelong desire for growing in wisdom and gaining knowledge of the Lord so that each may fulfill God's purposes and bring glory to Him.

How it all began...

 Paul and Sawyer

The first seed of GRACEPOINT was planted in 2012 when two mothers, Molly Holm and Angie Strack, found themselves searching for the best school to serve their dyslexic sons.  As overwhelming as starting a school seemed at the time, with the leadership of Brenda Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Georgia Educational Training Agency, the doors of GRACEPOINT opened just six months later with a mere four students, and by October, there were eight.  GRACEPOINT is now in its 12th year, serving 135 students in grades 1-8.  Ms. Holm, Ms. Strack, and Mrs. Fitzgerald currently serve on the Board of Directors.  Dr. Ansley Daniel is the Head of School.


Our location...


the next chapterGRACEPOINT opened its doors in August of 2012, holding classes at Riverstone Church in Kennesaw.  After four years of steady growth, GRACEPOINT outgrew the space and accepted a generous offer from Piedmont Church to occupy a stand-alone building on their campus in exchange for renovating it.  This building served GRACEPOINT well from 2016 to 2023, increasing enrollment to 135 students.  After the recent purchase and renovation of the former MUST ministries building, GRACEPOINT now has a 30,000-square-foot home of its own, located at 1407 Cobb Parkway North in Marietta.  



Our Beliefs...


GRACEPOINT welcomes families from all faith traditions, believing that God has given each of us talents and abilities to use for His glory. We believe

  • all students, given the right opportunities and techniques, can be successful learners.
  • all students can develop their talents and leadership qualities while learning.
  • our students will progress by incorporating a multi-sensory approach to learning and being prescriptive in planning for each individual student.
  • in being open to the power of the Holy Spirit as we instruct our students in truth and love.
  • our students will be more than able, after completing the program to transition back into public/private educational opportunities.



Our Statement of Faith...


At GRACEPOINT, we are dedicated to educating dyslexic students in a Christ-centered environment. We will work to develop each student's God-given spiritual, physical, and mental gifts to the fullest.  With God's grace, we are committed to loving and glorifying God in everything we do.  We believe that there is one God who is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ, God's one and only son, is our Lord and Savior.  We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God.
