About the Day School

The pandemic canceled what would have been the Day School’s 65th year. Our Day School board made this decision with a heavy heart but with the best interests of families and staff in mind. We are now open following state and federal health guidelines. An updated Grace Covid Plan and Operating Procedures is available.

Since 1955 Grace Episcopal Day School has operated as a ministry of our historic church in Yorktown, Virginia. This Christian-based, religiously exempt weekday education program, which includes a private half-day Kindergarten, provides a wholesome and stable atmosphere conducive to learning.

Using loving care and guidance, we strive to enrich each child’s life through age-appropriate activities that enhance their spiritual, emotional, mental and physical development. We are committed to making our students’ preschool years positive learning experiences that prepare them for elementary education.

Currently we have five classrooms with a total capacity of 60 students. Our playground is adjacent to our classrooms, nestled on a bluff overlooking the Yorktown waterfront. All staff members are required to complete annual health screenings, background checks and a comprehensive mandatory training program for the protection of children and youth. In addition, our school facility carries public liability insurance.

We invite you to contact us for more information, including tours and (when public health concerns abate) classroom observations.
