The HEART Program at Grace Fellowship Academy ensures an inclusive environment for learners of all abilities. Every child is knit by God and is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). As Christians, we all fit together like puzzle pieces to form the body of Christ. The body of Christ is made up of many parts; all unique, all needed for the body of Christ to be complete (1 Corinthians 12). At GFA, students are determined eligible for the HEART program through an evaluation process. Students may receive support through an Accommodation Plan or an Individual Support Plan.
Helping- GFA staff will support our students with their educational needs.
Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:11)
Everyone- We are better together!
But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. (1 Corinthians 12:18)
And- Our weaknesses help us grow in our faith as we depend on God and seek Him in our struggles.
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12: 9-10)
Reaching- Always try your best!
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. (Colossians 3:23)
Targets- God is working within us and forming us according to His plans.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6)
Although Grace Fellowship Academy follows best practice and earnestly attempts to meet students’ educational needs, we do not provide a “free and appropriate public education” (FAPE) as guaranteed by law in a public school. Therefore, the procedural safeguards that are provided to students with disabilities and their parents through IDEA do not apply.
