Application and Registration

Thank you for your interest in our school. Now that you know what we’re all about, we invite you to apply. When you enroll at Grace Lutheran School, you make a spiritual and educational investment in your most priceless asset—your child.

Visit us Virtually or in Person

Grace Lutheran School offers virtual and in-person tours for prospective students and parents.

A virtual visit is a personal, online meeting with our admissions director via Zoom. Our admissions director is available during the week to provide information and answer questions.

If you are interested in setting up a virtual or in-person meeting or if you have any questions, please contact Donna Behnken via email or call the school at (256) 881-0553.

Enrollment Procedure

Step 1: Visit Us. Complete the New Student Inquiry form found on this page, and schedule an appointment for a tour of the school.

Step 2: Complete the Online Application. If you have any questions about your online application or would like more information, please fill out our request information form, and someone in our admissions office will contact you. 

Step 3: Test. We will administer diagnostic tests to all new applicants in kindergarten through 8th grade. We will use the test scores to help us assess your child's capability for success in our school and to determine reading and math skill levels.

Our teachers will arrange testing times and conduct the tests. We require students applying for grades 4–8 to score at or above the 50th percentile on the math and reading sub tests. We reserve the right to administer the SAT to a prospective student if achievement test scores are not available.

Step 4: Paperwork and Fees. Please turn in all required documentation - original birth certificate, social security card, immunization card, and fees (registration fee, etc.).

Step 5: Online Enrollment. Each family will complete their student's enrollment in RenWeb (ParentsWeb) under "Family Information,” "Enrollment/Reenrollment.”
