Absolutely! We’d love to have you visit Graland as many times as you like. Being on campus, talking with our teachers and seeing our students in action is the best way to get a sense of the Graland community.
Tours allow you to see not only Graland’s facilities, but also the students and teachers at work in the classroom. Open houses include information from Graland administrators, a tour, and a question and answer session focused on the grade(s) of your child(ren).
Yes! We strive to make Graland affordable for qualified students from all backgrounds through need-based financial assistance. We award over $2.6 million in financial assistance to students in Grades K-8. We regret that Graland is unable to offer financial aid for preschool and pre-kindergarten students. Learn more about financial aid, the process and see our financial aid checklist for more details.
Applicants in Preschool to Grade 2 come for a short visit (30-60 minutes depending on the grade). The visits take place in the classroom with other applying students. Teachers get to know the students while doing fun and academic activities. During the visit, parents can attend an optional question and answer session with school administrators.
Applicants in Grades 3-8 visit for a full day, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. They shadow a Graland student in their current grade and experience academic classes, fine arts classes, PE and recess. Lunch is provided.
Parent interviews are discussions with a Graland admission professional that are typically 30 minutes to one hour and focus on getting to know your child and family. It is also a time when you can ask personal and in depth questions.
Testing is only part of the admission process -- we want to get to know your child on many levels. The cognitive testing for applicants K-4 tells us how your child learns and processes information so we can understand what type of teacher and environment will benefit him or her the most.
The ISEE test for applicants Grades 5-8 provides an overview of your child’s previous academic experience, their strengths and challenges so we can engage and support them in Middle School.
Once the regular admission deadline has passed, Graland accepts applications year-round and will work with families to complete the admission process as quickly as possible, based on space availability.
