Episcopal Academy strives to create a school environment where
all people are valued and where all perspectives are respected and
appreciated in every facet of our community life. Our Christian roots
encourage us to teach our children the values of inclusion, equity, and
justice and to model these attributes in all that we do. In this way, we
are better equipped to shape young people into global citizens ready to
apply their learning in thoughtful and relevant ways.
By approaching teaching, learning, and community building with a
focus on diversity, we strengthen our ability to attract and retain a broad
range of talented and engaged families and employees. We recognize
that diversity includes everyone and has many dimensions, including,
but not limited to: gender, geography, learning style, physical
challenges, race, ethnicity, politics, religion, sexual orientation,
socio-economic background, and diverse gifts and talents.
Our focus on diversity enhances our efforts to create a learning
environment that demonstrates the unique worth of all human beings as
creations of a loving, empowering God. As a result, diversity is a core
value embedded in our school motto Esse Quam Videri – To Be, Rather
Than To Seem To Be – and in our mission to instill in each child a sense
of responsibility and moral obligation towards others.
