Admissions

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)-366-6900. She  will answer your questions, help plan your visit, and walk you through the application and enrollment process.

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  will be held October 18, 2019 at 8:30 am. Register NOW!

Plan ahead to attend our Open House in January 2020. Invite a friend or neighbor. 

After my visit to Grace, what comes next? 

During your visit, you will receive an application packet. Complete the application, along with fee, and all required forms found here.

Once completed, we will get busy assisting you in getting your school records, transcripts, etc. to be reviewed. At this time, we will  also schedule a student visit and assessment for applicants for first through eighth grade.

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.
