"My daughter spent the first part of second grade crying every morning when she had to go to school. 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. 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. GRACEPOINT is the school environment she needed to thrive! She loves school again and I am so thankful. She is reading more than I ever imagined and is so confident. 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."
