Below are some of the things people are saying about Growing in Grace.
Growing in grace is the best school any girl could ever attend! I learned so much about Jesus, and the teachers were so encouraging and so helpful! If there was anything you needed help on or even if you just needed to talk to them about something they were there to listen! So, I highly recommend going to Growing in Grace and I cannot wait til next year!!
• Chloe C. (Current Student)
The teachers here are helping my daughters thrive in their education! They are encouraging and supportive.
•Lauren S. (parent)
Growing in Grace has been such a great blessing to my girls. They absolutely love all the teachers there. If you want your girl/girls to be taught academically and spiritually this is the place for them.

As a former student of Mrs. Laura May, I can attest to the fact that this woman genuinely cares for her students. Mrs. Laura is the epitome of love, humbleness, kindness, and service. She is a woman after God’s own heart. She seeks to develop her students both mentally and spiritually. She works hard, not only to provide an excellent education, but also to make young people into young adults, equipped with Truth and prepared for the world. North MS Curriculum Services is more than a homeschool service. It’s an organization that provides kids the opportunity to make lifelong friends, learn useful home skills, and learn from Christian-based materials. It’s a great way for parents to be involved in their child’s education, while still allowing them to make friends and partake in social events that most homeschoolers never get the chance to be a part of. I would not be who I am today without Mrs. Laura and her investment in me. I would absolutely recommend this service to any family interested in homeschool. It’s an honor to have been taught by Mrs. Laura May.

Where do I Start as a Parent of an autistic child of coming from public school. After three years at GIG, SHE HAS CHANGED FROM NIGHT TO DAY in an ABSOLUTELY GODLY WAY. I will never forget the visit I had with Mrs Laura before my daughter attended GIG. When I left her house I knew the PRAYERS that we had been praying were ANSWERED. I know if you are looking for a home school program for your daughter you will not find a better place for her to grow spiritually and academically.
• Jeff R. (parent)
Every sweet moment now carries a little pain with it. Teaching at this school has been one of the sole sources of growth in my Christian walk, and watching girls understand the Bible and the Gospel is something that continues to bring life to me.
Seeing the seniors graduate, knowing I’ll be passing this role onto someone else, has given me a sober realization of the way our God intricately works. He doesn’t need me, yet He uses me.
My bible class will continue, with another vessel whom God chooses to use and He will glorify Himself immensely through it. Students will come to know and understand, while I will have moved to the next venture the Lord has.
I will save my tears for the last school day, but I don’t think my boss or coworkers or students will ever truly know the passion in my heart for this opportunity, and the thankfulness I have to God for giving it to me.
I sit here tonight and literally count — every student, every blessing, every classroom in the last 3 years where God gave me a blank canvas to display His majesty for all who had eyes to see. There has been no greater privilege.

This is my first year and Growing in Grace Homeschooling Tutoring Services. I was nervous when first coming to the school just because it was a new school and all but right when I got there, I felt so welcome and and everyone was sooooo kind. This school is definitely a spiritual based school. I would definitely recommend this school to others.
• Hope L. (Class of 2021)
My daughter learned social skills along with book skills, she came away equipped with courage and transparency in knowing who she was . She found her true identity as she grew in grace along with other young ladies that were led to come out of their shells by Laura May as she is led by Christ Jesus! My daughter was even able to start college early and also got a job at the college! I am ever so thankful for the take aways, wisdom and relationships that will last a lifetime! Thanks be to God for this ministry, I mean, Homeschool Tutoring Service!
• Tonya S. (parent)
I am proud to say I’ve known Laura May for many years. When I first moved to the area she was a great encouragement and highly knowledgeable about many things. Her guidance and friendship where an asset to my family successfully completing our homeschool experience. I have 3 grown children who have all gone on to college and have blessed lives. Laura has a servants heart and very compassionate at what God has given her to do. Her knowledge in the curriculum world and people skills are very valuable and I believe will be a great help to many.
• Patti G. (friend)
One of the many great things about Growing in Grace is the fact that not only does Mrs. Laura and all of the teachers focus on the girls growing academically, but spiritually. Sadly, I was only able to go one year due to me starting my senior year, but just in that one year I grew in ways that I truly never thought I could. The community within Growing in Grace is unbelievable. I created relationships that I will be able to cherish for the rest of my life. Growing in Grace was such a huge blessing in my life, and I know it will be for others as well. I would definitely recommend this program to others!
• Laney C. (Class of 2021)
Growing in Grace truly is a great school, the teachers will always be there to help you with anything you need, whether that is school related or just something personal. They apply Christ to our weekly classes and genuinely love all the students and make you feel comfortable. Mrs. Laura May has helped me beyond measures💕
• Betsy L. (Class of 2022)
Growing in grace is not only a learning environment, but a loving one. I learned so much about Jesus and met the best friends I’ll ever have. I never felt judged by the teachers or anyone else. Very welcoming! Couldn’t think of a better place to go to school.
• Kara G. (Class of 2020)
I was homeschooled through Mrs. Laura and it was very educational! I also had fun with classmates and we had deep discussions in what we were learning. I would highly recommend this program!!
• Delaney W. (Class of 2018)
Honestly wouldn’t have graduated without Mrs. Laura starting this for us! My best high school days were in her house with my sweet lifelong friends. I miss high school so much because of this school and all the precious memories that I could never replace.
• Kalyn C. (Class of 2015)
We have only been homeschooling for 2 years, but Laura May has been a tremendous help. If it wasn’t for her encouragement it may not have made the leap of faith. Everytime we have had a question she has gladly answered them. If anyone comes to me with questions about homeschooling I will guide to Laura.
• Renea M. (parent)
Mrs. Laura is a joy to be taught by! I absolutely loved every day we spent together and wouldn’t want my senior year to be any different!
• Garrian B. (Class of 2019)
My 2 girls LOVED growing in grace. This was our first year. My 12th grader made some awesome Godly friends & she was pushed out of her comfort zone on so many levels (which she needed) !! My 7th grader was so sad that school was ending & is looking forward to 8th grade!
• Casey W. (parent)
Mrs. Laura is such a precious and Godly woman, and I am so thankful to have been taught by her the last 2 years. She started Growing in Grace to help teenage girls focus on the things that matter: necessary academics, life lessons, and most importantly Christ. She makes sure every one of her students is welcomed and loved and is pointed toward Jesus. • Brooke C. (Class of 2022)
What a wonderful place for our daughter! These teachers invest in your child. It’s not only about the academics, it’s about building character. I am so thankful we were able to leave public school and place our daughter in a safer, genuinely caring environment She thrived, made great friends, and had a great experience. We recently were relocated due to our job but we miss this school and I’m grateful to Mrs. Laura for investing in our daughter. She communicates to parents, doesn’t not allow bullying, and runs a great program. Mrs. Tracy is an amazing math teacher! She’s passionate about math but also her students. She is brilliant! Thankful for our time at Growing in Grace. • Brandi B. (mom 2022)
