Lower School

Our Lower School students begin the course of a rigourous academic program supported with personal attention. Grace Lutheran Lower School students' success is ultimately based on mutual support and encouragement among parents, students, and teachers. 

Lower School students are involved with many activities, both in and out of the classroom, during the school year. Through classroom field trips, school visits  from children's authors and illustrators from around the country, full array of athletic and musical offerings, and learning about service organizations that our school supports through chapel offerings throughout the year, our students not only connect to one another and apply their learning to their community, but also realize the importance they have on the world we all live in. At Grace, we proclaim, connect and grow with one another and the community and world we live in.
