Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Grace Lutheran School! At Grace, we seek to educate the whole student—mind, body, and spirit—and to develop in students a lifelong love of learning. We strive to provide an intellectually challenging environment that is responsive to the needs of all students. We believe that learning occurs in the classroom and beyond—on the playground and playing field, in worship, in song, and in service. 

We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our school community. Contact us today!

Admissions Process FAQs

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 school office  at (708) 366-6900. We will answer your questions, and walk you through the application and enrollment process. 

How can I see the school?

We want you to see the many things our school has to offer. We have a Virtual Open House available on demand. Contact the Director of Enrollment, Jordan Easton, at 708-366-6900 to discuss other tour options.

After my tour what comes next? 

We will provide an application packet and answer any questions. Once the admission packet and fees are returned the enrollment process begins!

Is there an opportunity to meet the principal?

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. 

When will I know if my child has been accepted?

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.
