Grace Episcopal Day School Admission Process
Finding the right school for your child is a journey for the whole family. At Grace, we are here to guide you through that journey by making sure that you are supported every step of the way, from your research, to your student visit, to experiencing the warmth of our Grace community once you have made the decision to join us.
Visiting our school should give you a snapshot into our community and a chance to imagine your family joining it! We invite prospective parents to come to one of our Information Sessions (children welcome) and/or for an individual tour (adults only, please).

4 Student Visit and Parent Conversation
Grace invites all prospective students to visit so that they can experience what it’s like to be a part of the Grace community, and so that we can get to know them better. We will contact you to schedule a visit once we have received your application.
Parent conversations are one-on-one and happen either during your student’s visit or shortly after you submit an application.

6 Optional: Apply for Variable Tuition
New for fall 2018, Grace is replacing our financial aid program with a Variable Tuition Model. Rather than offer financial aid packages to families, we will offer a range of tuitions. Our ideal is that each family’s tuition -- a figure that represents the portion of the full cost of a Grace education that a family is required to pay -- be in line with what a family can afford to contribute.
For more information about Variable Tuition, and instructions on applying, visit our Affording Grace page.
