Together Time and Music Time

Grace Church School offers two additional programs, Together Time and Music Time, for children not yet old enough for preschool. Enrollment in these programs does not constitute enrollment in the School; you will need to apply separately for admission into the Twos or Threes program. See information on these programs, including how to apply.

Financial Aid

Grace Church School invests a minimum of 6% of its tuition income in providing financial aid each year.  In addition and thanks to a very generous gift in memory of former Grace Church School teacher, Betty McDonald, the School is also able to award financial aid each year from the Betty McDonald Scholarship Fund.  Financial aid applications are available upon request. The deadline for applying for Financial Aid for current families is December 15, 2014.  The deadline for applying for Financial Aid for prospective families is January 16, 2015. See Grace Church School class and tuition schedule.
