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.

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year will be opening soon. Our Admission Team will continue to review applications for the 2022-2023 school year on a space available basis. Please see our Dates & Deadlines page for more details about the admission process and upcoming events or contact Melissa Lafionatis at with specific 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. 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.

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are open! Applications can be submitted through Ravenna. We will continue to review applications for the 2022-2023 school year on a space available basis

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 and grade. Details to schedule your student's visit will be sent once we have received their application. Everyone’s safety and comfort is the highest priority, please contact the admission office with questions regarding visits.
