'Acorn to Tree' is the theme for our second annual Grace Give Day. As a continuation of our year-long exploration of the word 'wonder', we asked our students to imagine where they might be and what they might be doing many years from now, when they are grown from a tiny acorn into a mighty tree.
A Grace education is only possible because of the generosity of our parents, alumni parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends. Your gift will help nourish the growth of our students so they might achieve their most ambitious dreams. Every gift goes directly towards supporting our current students and faculty and improves the quality and accessibility of a Grace education.
