Mission Statement

Grace Episcopal Day School will provide every student the opportunity for academic excellence in a caring, nurturing, moral environment that embraces diversity and promotes creativity, self-confidence, and service to others. 

School Philosophy

Grace Episcopal Day School serves students age three through grade five. Our rich and challenging curriculum provides a thorough foundation in fundamental academic skills, and our students develop a deep appreciation for music, art, literature, science, athletics, and language. Grace respects, supports, and values diversity of culture, race, faith traditions, and learning styles.

Our caring, nurturing, and supportive atmosphere allows Grace students to feel safe while being challenged and taking risks. Our school develops leadership, self-confidence, and poise. We believe in empowering our students in the formation of logical and meaningful rules that promote respect, foster personal responsibility, and strengthen our community. Our school is designed to celebrate childhood at each developmental stage, from early childhood through elementary school, and our class sizes ensure each student is known, nurtured, challenged, and loved.

As a ministry of Grace Episcopal Church and grounded in the Episcopal school tradition of inclusivity, Grace welcomes students of all faiths. We consistently work to build and serve our community, both in and out of school, where God’s love and grace are modeled through our interactions with each other.

DIVERSITY MISSION STATEMENT

Grace Episcopal Day School is a community of students, teachers, parents, and administrators that cares about and respects all people within and outside the walls of the school. We model and teach love for all humanity, and we value the contributions and perspectives of each individual. Our community welcomes all who share these values regardless of differences such as race, ethnicity, religion, gender, family composition, sexual orientation, disability, and socio-economic status. Grace Episcopal Day School is committed to preparing students to live, work, and thrive in a diverse America and a global society. 

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY

Grace Episcopal Day School does not discriminate on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation in the administration of its education programs, admission policies, employment practices, financial aid programs, or any other school programs or activities.

MISSION

Grace Episcopal Day School will provide every student the opportunity for academic excellence in a caring, nurturing, moral environment that embraces diversity and promotes creativity, self-confidence, and service to others.
