After Grace

Grace Episcopal Day School has an extremely strong and supportive outplacement program, and our small class size guarantees personal attention from the Head of School as students prepare to apply to other schools for either middle school or middle and high school.

Schools that have accepted recent Grace graduates include Barrie, Bullis, Christ Episcopal, Edmund Burke, Holy Child, Landon, Lowell, Maret, McLean, National Cathedral School, Norwood, Sandy Spring Friends School, Sidwell Friends, Siena School, St. Albans, St. Andrew’s Episcopal, St. Anselm’s, St. John’s Episcopal, St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School, Stone Ridge, Woods Academy, Washington Episcopal School, and Washington Jesuit Academy. A number of our students also attend a variety of public schools across Montgomery County.

Class of 2021:

We are exceedingly proud of our 2021 Grade 5 class for their many acceptances to independent schools across the area this spring. Our students received acceptances to the following schools: Bullis, Christ Episcopal School, Edmund Burke, Georgetown Day School, Connelly School of the Holy Child, Lowell, National Cathedral School, Norwood, St. Andrew's Episcopal School, Sidwell Friends, Sandy Spring Friends School, Washington Episcopal School, and Woods Academy.

In an unprecedented format for applying, our students impressed admission officers during their many Zoom interviews and assessments. We look forward to celebrating the many accomplishments and contributions of this special group throughout the coming months!

Grade 5 Chapel Prayers

Every year, our Grade 5 students write a personal prayer for our final Chapel of the year, reflecting on their time at Grace, what they have learned, and their hopes and dreams for the future of their beloved elementary school. We hope you enjoy these multi-media presentations from the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2019. Stay tuned for the Class of 2021!
