We have loved our experiences at Grace Episcopal School. Our child has been there since first grade and will be graduating this year. We love its "small by design" approach and feels that has had great benefits for our child. The teachers have been able to tailor their teaching to the dynamics of the class and address specific needs of each student in ways that wouldn't be possible in larger classrooms. The head of school is fantastic - completely approachable and kind, yet laser focused on creating the best environment for the kids and faculty. We're proud to be a part of the Grace community!

My two daughters have attended Grace Episcopal from kindergarten through fifth grade. It is a warm, nurturing environment that fosters character building. The school`s faculty is outstanding - the majority have advanced degrees - and staff retention is high. The class sizes are small, ensuring the students get the attention they need to be able to master a subject. My oldest daughter was fully prepared for the transition into middle school and continues to excel, drawing on the solid educational foundation build during her time at Grace.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
