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 we can get to know them better. Preschool and Prekindergarten group visits last approximately 40 minutes; Kindergarten visits last approximately one hour; and Grade 1 visits last approximately two hours. Applicants for Grades 2-5 visit from 8:30 a.m. to noon. We will contact you to schedule a visit once we have received your application.

Parent conversations take place during your tour or your student’s visit, and they are a wonderful way for us to get to know each other.
