About Grace Academy
When Grace Academy approached Rocketship for a website redesign, they were facing several critical challenges with their existing online presence. The website was outdated, difficult to manage, and did not reflect the institution’s forward-thinking approach. The key issues were:
- User-Friendliness: The original website lacked an intuitive user interface, making it challenging for visitors to find essential information and navigate through the pages effectively.
- Outdated Branding: The website featured outdated branding elements, including images of former students, which did not align with the academy’s vision of modernity and progress.
- Platform Limitations: The existing website was built on WordPress, which posed limitations in terms of scalability and customization.
- Content Disorganization: The content structure was not optimized for user experience, leading to difficulties in finding relevant information, particularly for prospective parents seeking the best education for their children.
