Admissions Team

Grace Lutheran School seeks to enroll students who are capable and committed to success in the total educational program of the school. Admission to Grace Lutheran School is based on factors that include previous school performance, teacher recommendations, testing results and a record of exemplary behavior. 

 

When should I plan to enroll my child? 

  • We begin accepting applications one year prior to the start of the school year in which the new student will be enrolled. It is best to complete the application process as early as possible to ensure you are eligible for enrollment before enrollment is opened to the community. 
  • We begin re-enrollment for our current families in January, admitting our applicants in February, then new students in March. We continue accepting applications through the summer, as class sizes permit.

Where do I begin?

The first step is to complete our Inquiry Form online, or contact our Director of Enrollment, Jennifer Beasley, (708) 320-3019. She will answer your questions, help plan your visit, and introduce you to our Associate of Enrollment, Annalise Nelson Balock, who will walk you through the application and enrollment process. Annalise can be contacted at (708)366-6901.

We encourage you to take a look at our view book!

We want you to see the many things our school has to offer. 

Join us on the third Friday of each month for a First Look Friday. Our next one is February 21, 2020 at 8:30 am. Register NOW!

After my visit to Grace, what comes next? 

During your visit, Annalise will provide an application packet and answer any questions. Once the admission packet and fees are returned the enrollment process begins! 

*** Our application packet can also be found online here.

Interviews come next! 

Every family applying for admission will meet with the school principal, Bill Koehne. Interviews offer parents and the principal the opportunity to ask questions and to determine if Grace Lutheran School is the best fit for the student and family. 

Admission decisions are made:

You’ll be notified in writing of admission to Grace Lutheran School.

  • Siblings of current students and members of Grace Lutheran Church will be notified by the end of February.
  • Other applicants will be notified of admission beginning in March.
