Music and choirs

Music at Grace is an expression of faith, an opportunity to strive for excellence, and a source of joy and pleasure. Children sing for Sunday morning worship services several times each year and lead the early-evening services on Christmas Eve. Students in grades 6–8 may participate in the handbell ensemble.

Orchestra and band programs offer lessons and ensembles for students who play instruments.  Annual dramatic presentations involve students in other dimensions of performing. Weekly art classes during the school day offer additional opportunities for creativity and self-expression. 

Foreign language

German is taught at all grade levels, with twice-weekly classes for younger students and daily classes in junior high. Students enter high school prepared to take second-year German classes.

After-school enrichment 

After-school enrichment classes include diverse activities such as Lego robotics, drama classes, art, and chess club. 


After-school sports teams for fifth through eighth grade boys and girls compete against other Lutheran schools in volleyball, basketball, and track, while students in third through eighth grade compete in cross country.
