I believe Grace has influenced all of my children to be hard workers, polite, and caring of others. I love that they have the older kids to look up to with their poise, service projects, and academic achievements.
Grace Episcopal Day School has a unique and exceptional way of caring for and loving all of the students and families. The faculty and staff take a personal stake in the success of each child, often going above and beyond to meet individual learning needs. The campus provides a safe, secure, and uplifting environment in which to grow and learn.
Grace Episcopal Day School has been such a good fit for us. Our daughter started school here in 4th grade and we absolutely love it! The school employs a wide variety of staff who are well educated, well grounded, and eager to assist. The school is small; the school and Grace Episcopal church staff all have a genuine concern for each child. The school is small and offers an excellent scholastic program, with help available as needed. The teachers all go above and beyond the call daily. Overall, the atmosphere is inviting and enjoyable for both children and parents. We feel very blessed to have found Grace Episcopal.
We initially chose Grace as a loving preschool when our oldest was three. When the time came to begin kindergarten, we couldn’t imagine leaving. As public school attendees ourselves, we hadn’t planned on an independent education for our children; we just absolutely fell in love with Grace. We have been so blessed by teachers who love our kids enough to push them academically, all while helping them grow spiritually and further develop their character. As someone who grew up attending church on Sundays, it has always amazed me how seamlessly Grace weaves God into every part of our children’s life. Rather than being segregated into a once-a-week experience, Grace kids are able to learn to rely on God throughout their work day. This sort of foundation is irreplaceable. Even better, such a strong foundation is accompanied by rigorous academics. Small classroom sizes mean individual attention, and a child who excels is given the opportunity for further critical thinking and growth. This academic foundation has given our three children a love of learning and an excitement for their academic future. We are so grateful for the gifts of Grace for our children.
For us as parents, Grace means the comfort of knowing that our children are loved during the day, that they are safe, and that we have a loving community of other families who also love our children. The Grace community extends far beyond the years during which children attend Grace and gives Grace families lifelong friends and extended support as we strive to be the best parents we can be.
We give to Grace in thanksgiving for the joy it has brought to our lives, and because we are convinced of the good Grace is doing in our children and our community. As Grace continues to grow, we will continue to develop even more compassionate student leaders with servants’ hearts – what a gift we can give our community and the world!

We are a military family and have been to five preschool / elementary schools and Grace is by far our favorite.
Grace is like a family to us. I love how the teachers instill kindness, politeness, and love into our children. The teachers are very dedicated and many have been there for many years. I love the individualized attention all the faculty and staff provide.
The kindergarten program is extremely creative and keeps the students engaged and learning. The reading and writing program is outstanding and cannot believe how much my child progressed in just the first couple months.
I first found Grace as I was desperately searching for a school that would do nothing but wrap my little blessing from above with LOVE, and be a second family. I am a single mom and wanted him to have a family away from home. We sure were blessed and still are.
