Registration

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year begins on February 5, 2018.  Children currently enrolled in GLPK, siblings of enrolled students, and children from families of whom at least one parent is a member of Grace Lutheran Church, ELCA, will have first registration priority for the following school year (2018-2019).  Families are informed about their child’s acceptance by the end of the third week in March and class placements are announced at the end of August.  CLICK HERE for details about the registration process.

Open House

Our annual Open House is an excellent opportunity to explore our facilities, meet our teachers and staff, and ask questions.  You are invited to drop in at any time during the event and are welcome to bring your children so they can explore as well.  Schedule a classroom visit so you can experience the joy of learning that we work hard to provide for each of our students!

 
Monthly tuition is due on the 10th of each month starting in August.  The final payment is 25% of the monthly rate and is paid on May 10th for the last week of school in June.  Tuition can be paid by cash, checks made payable to Grace Lutheran, or completing the automatic bank payment form.


Tuition Assistance

If your family is unable to pay full tuition due to income limitations or other short- or long-term challenges, you can apply for assistance to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the amount you can afford.  Each year we hold fundraisers to meet the needs of ourschool families.  Prayerfully consider how much you can afford and ask the school office for an application if you wish to apply for assistance.  All requests are confidential.

Central PA Scholarship Fund - EITC Scholarship Program

In September of 2017 Grace Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten participated in the EITC scholarship program through the Central PA Scholarship Fund.  GLPK received $5,000 which provided scholarship money to three families and enabled their children the opportunity to attend our preschool & kindergarten.  Pennsylvania provides tax credits for corporate contributions to Scholarship Organizations (SOs) - nonprofits that provide private school scholarships, or Educational Improvement Organizations (EIO) - nonprofits that support innovative programs in public schools.  If your business would like information on how to participate in this program and receive tax credit for your contribution, please click on the website below.
