Who We Are
Chantale Milord, Founder and CEO, opened the doors of Grace Leadership Preperatory Institute (GLPI) in 2005. Her vision was to reduce the educational, experiential, spiritual, and psychological shortcomings of children, families, and communities in need. Today, her vision has grown into second campus at GLPI, and more expansion is coming. GLPI is a 501(c)(3) accredited K-12 college preparatory Christian school with a personalized digital learning environment. Our team is committed to delivering a comprehensive education. The curriculum uses digital learning strategies at each grade level; students can then apply it successfully in higher education and the competitive work world. As community advocates, we believe in supporting our students in many aspects of their lives, including nutrition, health and wellness, neighborhood safety, experiential travel, crime preclusion, and drug awareness.

Our mission is to teach students, families, and communities to take control of their lives and futures — through academic excellence and self-efficacy — by becoming independent thinkers and responsible adults.
GLPI is a structured learning community that inspires students spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually to take ownership of the life God has given to them and to transform themselves and the world entrusted to them. The school is equally committed to the development of each student’s character, with an emphasis on grace, leadership, perseverance, and integrity.
While GLPI’s emphasis is on a holistic student education, the day-to-day execution of policies and procedures strengthens through our “Straight A” Paradigm. Its implementation has a core focus on action for desired results, staff management, and community mentorships; it expands students’ options for opportunities and strengthens their decision-making abilities.
Through Dinner Educational Experience (BTD), gives students a dynamic environment and structured engagement throughout the day, focusing on specific, student-centered characteristics.
Each action emphasizes appropriate characteristics and reinforces students’ good decisions. These characteristics support a variety of experiences for learning, entertainment, and recognition based on students’ focus and actions.
