I really love that Gravitas focuses on character building. My son has expressed to me great appreciation for the lessons in philosophy and I especially love the weekly chapels that students must attend as it focuses on building character in a world where character is being challenged all the time. I can see how my son’s thought process and views are evolving in ways that focus more on the bigger picture.

As a parent, I love the small size class instruction and the opportunities given by the teachers to get additional help and support when needed. After my son went through his first intensive, I realized that his previous school attended, which was a public school, must have glossed over the areas where my son has the most room to grow. Now that he is at Gravitas, the areas where he needs the most support have been brought to the forefront and Gravitas has provided support in areas of weakness so my son can improve as a student.

“Check out this school if you are looking for a safe place to send your kids for a Christian-based, first class education. My two oldest boys attend here and I could not be happier. We were drawn in by the academic reputation of SBS and the faith-based component. The flexibility Gravitas provides and the live instruction are terrific. The high level of engagement of the teachers sets Gravitas apart."

"I love the flexibility of Gravitas! I see my son really engaging deeply in his classes, thinking, asking questions, and debating about topics I didn't get to when I was his age. More than anything else, the one thing we want to give our son is Jesus...I am more than happy with the faith element of Gravitas."

“Gravitas is expanding [my child’s] worldview and conversation.  Her work ethic has improved as far as time management and staying on task go. The quality of the faculty and their teaching, support, etc. is fantastic. Public school doesn't provide the level of support she receives at Gravitas.  The support is great.  The teaching method is very engaging and encourages participation.  It’s really nice.”

My teachers helped me go above and beyond. Humanities 10 was considerably intensive compared to other classes that I have taken in the past-but, my teachers were very supportive and accommodating with the assignments/projects given to me throughout the week. And although at first, I was worried about the limitations of engagement in online school compared to in-person school, my worries became meaningless when I joined the first meeting for my class.

Gravitas is a place of learning and growth in all senses of the word. I have grown exponentially even in my short time here.

"My math teacher is extremely dedicated to ensuring that I am challenged and getting the most out of an exceptional course. She is an awesome teacher! I also greatly appreciate the scholarly approach of my Humanities teachers. All my teachers have been great.

It's a good balance between synchronous classes and the flexibility it affords to provide the opportunity to pursue other interests and passions outside of the school."

"My daughter is glad that she is one of the Gravitas students. Gravitas provides great teachers, curriculum, and lots of feedback. It shows how much Gravitas carefully focuses on students. I hope lots of students apply and have such a great experience at Gravitas!"
