Where every child is seen, known, and loved.

Grace Lutheran School is a private Preschool, Elementary, and Junior High school rooted in Christian faith and service. We take a whole-child approach to education, providing each student with individual care and attention.

Strong academics.
Compassionate character.

Our curriculum combines rigorous academics with faith-based learning and worship. Our robust arts and athletics programs immerse students in music, sports, and visual arts. At Grace Lutheran School, our students grow into well-rounded individuals, ready to continue learning, serving, and growing in their faith.

A diverse, welcoming community.

We believe children grow in compassion and creativity when they learn from many perspectives and points of view. We are committed to providing opportunities to discover and celebrate diversity. We strive to be a place where every child feels a sense of belonging and every family is connected.


Grace Lutheran School has been a perfect fit for our family, and our three kids are thriving here. We love the smaller school feel where children are known and truly loved by the teachers and staff they encounter.  Hugs abound.  Small class sizes and sports teams starting in 3rd grade have led to lasting, deep friendships. Our kids enjoy a diverse group of friends from surrounding communities who have been great additions to their Oak Park friends. Our family enjoys the welcoming community and social events the school organizes.  Students at Grace are challenged academically and have individualized learning and differentiation happening from our kindergartener up to our 5th grader.  Grace also focuses on values and character, not just test scores and grades.  Our kids wake up excited to go to school and we are so grateful.

After touring a few private schools in the Oak Park/River Forest area, we decided to have our child attend Grace Lutheran. The determining factors were the supportive learning environment, dedicated teachers/staff, faith based setting, and classroom size. Grace Lutheran offers a challenging academic program that encourages students to excel and strive for academic excellence while fostering social-emotional development. Families are encouraged to be invested stakeholders. The students are motivated to bring out the optimal version of themselves. Grace Lutheran is a school that your child/ren can grow in.

We are thankful for God’s grace, mercy, and loving kindness. He’s blessed us beyond measure by giving us a model community through Grace Lutheran School. We are thankful for the genuine relationships and faithful stewardship each family member carries. Yes, family members. The term “staff” is not what we witness in such a loving community.
