How to Apply

Submitting an Application for 2020-2021

Welcome to GRACE Christian School and thank you for your interest! We are accepting applications for the current 2020-2021 school year. If you are applying for the 2019-2020 school year, please inquire, as some grades have reached capacity. 

While our GRACE family is engaged in Virtual Learning off campus, we are devoted to making sure we carry out the Admissions process as close to normal as possible! 

Please know while there will be some delay in the admissions process, the decision for your child’s future is one that we do not take lightly! I pray that you will have peace of mind knowing we will do everything in our power to carry the process to completion via virtual admissions! 

  • Once you have submitted your application, a GRACE Admissions team member will reach out to help you navigate the admissions process virtually from start to finish! 
  • If you are applying for 1st grade or 2nd grade, we are currently collecting waitpool applications. We want to encourage you to submit your application, there is always movement and possibility, as we strongly desire to open additional sections in waitpooled grades given sufficient demand!
  • If you are applying for the LEAP program, please inquire about availability for certain grade levels.
  • Specific instructions on how to submit an online application including a list of required documents can be found in the 2020-2021 Application Process & Required Documents. These documents are for reference only and do not have links to the online application.  

 In the meantime, if you’d like an inside look at our school community, we invite you to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages. We’ll be posting fun videos, hosting live chapels, and providing engaging activities your family can do together at home to stay connected during this season of life. We are happy to answer any questions you may have! Please Request More Information or send us a virtual chat on our website and our Admissions Office will contact you. Thank you for choosing GRACE!

Waiting Pool

Waiting Pools will be started when a grade reaches capacity. To secure a spot in the waiting pool, a $50 non-refundable deposit is required. This deposit is applied to the application fee when an opening becomes available. Historically, during winter and spring months, there is movement in our enrollment numbers and many students are accepted from waiting pools.
