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, especially during this time when in-person connections are difficult to accomplish.

Although the deadline for admission for the 2021-2022 school year has passed, we are still accepting applications for some classes. Please contact me directly at karen@geds.org to find out more, or with any questions you might have.

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. Then enjoy some video clips on our Vimeo channel.

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.

We are eager to help you get to know as much about Grace as we possibly can. We 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.

2Apply for Admission

The deadline for applications for the 2021-2022 school year has passed.

Please get in touch with me directly at karen@geds.org to find out more about late admissions for the 2021-2022 school year.

Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will open in late September 2021.

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. 

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. Our student meeting may take the form of a Zoom session with a member of our admission team or materials submitted by parents. Everyone’s safety and comfort is the highest priority, so we will contact you to discuss options once we have received your application.
