Read here as a GRACEPOINT parent shares her appreciation for the GA Goal Scholarship fund.

"My daughter spent the first part of her 2nd grade year crying every morning when she had to go to class. She had always loved school but now she had fallen too far behind. During this time, we discovered she has Dyslexia and in turn, we heard about GRACEPOINT. We had never planned on private school. We had never even thought about it. I was a public school teacher for 12 years. But through the process, we learned she needed GRACEPOINT, a private school with private school tuition. I was just a public school teacher and our family did not know how God was going to make a way, but we knew He would. The Georgia GOAL scholarship for our family was an answer to prayer. The Georgia GOAL scholarship is the ONLY way our daughter could attend GRACEPOINT. It was the way God showed us we were on the right path, His path and plan for her. She has been at GRACEPOINT for almost a full calendar year. She is reading more than I ever imagined and is so confident. GRACEPOINT is the school environment she needed to thrive, and she is thriving! She just spent a snow day begging to go to the library to get new books and wanting Mommy to give her a reading lesson and practice math. She loves school again and I am so thankful.  Dyslexia affects the entire family. There are so many worries and concerns, and it has many challenges along the way. I am so thankful that people participated in Georgia GOAL because it helped our family through a challenging time in our journey. GRACEPOINT has been life-changing for my daughter and our family, and it was all made possible because of people who participated in Georgia GOAL."
