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.

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. 
  • We begin re-enrollment for our current families in January, and will begin admitting new applicants in February. 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 are scheduling in-person tours by appointment, and have virtual options available on-demand. Contact us to schedule a personal tour. 

After my tour what comes next? 

You will need to submit an online application and pay a $50 application fee for each student who is applying to the school. Once all application materials 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.
