Students participated in a Walk for the Homeless to support the Alive! House. Alive! is the largest private safety net for the needy in the city of Alexandria. In an effort to show awareness of the need to help those less fortunate, students walked 3 laps around the school.
Founded in 1959, Grace Episcopal School provides an academically challenging and developmentally appropriate education for children in Preschool through Fifth Grade.
Our strong academic program emphasizes the basic tools of learning: reading, writing, and mathematics. Students receive personal attention in small classes, and learn to be critical thinkers and successful problem solvers.
The curriculum is varied - rich in music, literature, art, history, science, physical education, and spiritual development.
