Special Consideration

We offer special consideration to children who meet one or more of the following criteria:

As admission decisions are based on a number of factors including a desire for balanced classrooms, special consideration eligibility does not guarantee admission to the school.

All parents, including parents of applicants whose siblings attend or have attended Grace Church School, must request an application online.

Age Cut-Offs

The primary point of entry to the preschool is the Twos program.

Together Time

Grace Church School offers a Together Time program for children not yet old enough for preschool. Enrollment in this program does not constitute enrollment in the pre-school; you will need to apply separately for admission into the Twos or Threes program. See information on Together Time, including how to apply. 

Financial Aid

Grace Church School is committed to making pre-school a viable option for all.  Financial Aid is available for students from Twos through Pre-Kindergarten and is awarded on the basis of need and availability of funds.

On your application, please indicate if you are interested in applying for Financial Aid. The deadline for applying for Financial Aid is Monday, December 4, 2023 for returning and special consideration families and Monday, January 11, 2024 for general applicant families.

Grace Church School sets aside 6% of its tuition income for financial aid each year. In addition, thanks to a 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.
