An Episcopal Day School | Preschool–Grade 5

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.

1 Research and Inquire

Spend some time looking through our website to learn about our approach to academics and learning, our inclusive community, and school life.

Or simply submit an Online Inquiry Form to request a call from our Director of Admission.


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).

Please contact our Director of Admission to schedule an individual tour by calling 240-292-5237 or fill out the form below.


Families should submit an application through Ravenna. The deadline for applications for the 2018-19 school year is Friday, February 2, 2018 at 5:00 pm EST.

4 Student Visit

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.

5 Parent Conversation

Parent conversations are one-on-one and happen either during your student’s visit or shortly after you submit an application. We will contact you to schedule a conversation once we have received your application.

6 Supporting Documents

Please note: all supporting documents are available to delegate and print through Ravenna. 

Teacher Recommendations:

7 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.
