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. Our intentionally small size and individualized approach carries through to our admission process, even -- and especially -- during this time when in-person connections are difficult to accomplish.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, Karen O'Connor-Floman, at karen@geds.org at any point during the process with questions. We look forward to getting to know your family!

1 Get to Know Grace

We invite you to spend some time looking through our website to learn about our approach to academics and learning, our inclusive community, and school life.

Ravenna manages our inquiries and applications for admission. You can log in, create a family profile, and choose Grace Episcopal Day School as a school you are exploring. Click below to visit the secure Ravenna website.

Since parent visits to campus are not possible while we are in Connected Remote Learning Mode, I am eager to help you get to know as much about Grace as I possibly can. I encourage you to schedule a time for an initial conversation with me via the link below. It will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and get answers, and to discuss what else we might do to introduce our community.

We will also offer three Admission Information Sessions via Zoom, which you can register for in Ravenna or here on our website (by clicking the date below):

Other questions? Please contact me directly at karen@geds.org

2Apply for Admission

Apply online via Ravenna by Friday, February 5, 2021 by 11:59 pm.

3 Apply for Variable Tuition (optional)

Rather than offer financial aid packages to families, Grace offers 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 that family can afford to contribute.

You can find out much more here on our Affording Grace page, including how to submit an application.  

Variable Tuition applications are optional and may be completed at any time. For new families, VT applications must be submitted no later than Friday, February 5, 2021 by 11:59 pm. 

4 Parent Conversation

We enjoy having a conversation with parents so that we can get to know both your family and your child better. This conversation usually lasts around 30 minutes. Once you have applied, we will send you a link to schedule your parent conversation. 

5 Student Meeting

Our Admission Team prioritizes meeting all prospective students. Visit formats vary by applicant age, grade, and which learning modality we are in. Everyone’s safety and comfort is the highest priority, so we will contact you to discuss options once we have received your application. During Connected Remote Learning, our student meeting may take the form of a Zoom session with a member of our admission team or materials submitted by parents.
