Come to First Look Friday

Apply NowWhen our students graduate, they go on to prestigious high schools in the area and beyond.
When should I begin the admissions process?
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, as classes fill quickly. Applications, materials and assessments must be completed and returned at least two weeks before the first day of school.
Where do I begin?
The first step is to schedule a tour. Our Director of Enrollment and Marketing will show you around, answer all your questions, and walk you through the admission process.
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.
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.
