Grace Episcopal 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.

School Notes

  • Grace Episcopal School is a small school by design.  Its size and educational philosophy enables the faculty and staff to develop fully the potential of each student academically, socially, and morally in a loving and nurturing environment.  Our highly experienced teachers are committed to knowing each student individually, and their efforts extend beyond the classroom to our playgrounds and playing fields, our stage, our enrichment programs, and service to the greater community.  Grace Episcopal School educates the whole student - intellectually, physically, and spiritually.
