The School of Grace is an incorporated, non-profit, half-day, Christian Preschool serving children ages 6 months through 5 years.

We founded our Lutheran Preschool in Raleigh in 1994 and received our 501(c)(3) status in 1995, beginning classes soon thereafter. As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association (ELEA), we receive support, education and resources. We at The School of Grace believe that children are individuals who are active, avid learners and are deserving of respect and love. We believe that children are citizens of their environment and that learning stems from all that surrounds them. This environment within the school setting includes play, social and peer interactions, speech and language development, cognitive skills, social and emotional development, worship, reverence, appreciation and respect for nature.

We believe children should have guided, hands-on learning, which we feel will help the child become more independent and self-sufficient. Children will also be encouraged to make choices within limits.

We are adamant believers in the use of positive discipline where each child can learn to take responsibility for his or her actions. We believe children should be given enough opportunities for appropriate behavior to discourage inappropriate behavior. We strongly advise modeling the appropriate behavior and mannerisms that we expect each age group of children to follow. Expectations are varied depending on age level.

The School of Grace, a Raleigh Lutheran preschool, believes in being in tune with its families, encouraging friendships, parental involvement, and active participation. We believe children to be the sole purpose of our center and for them we dedicate our time, energy and love!

The School of Grace admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
