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.
