Welcome! The greatest gift that we as parents can provide for our children is our love and our time and attention. Following these three is the gift of an education. All of us want to provide our children with the best possible chance to learn and grow and prosper. At Episcopal we have been helping parents to provide that gift, and have been doing a great job of developing and nurturing young minds, bodies, and spirits for more than two hundred years.
What is an Episcopal education all about? We strive to challenge every child, to help each achieve his or her full potential, and to develop the skills and the interests to be good citizens and life-long learners
An Episcopal education is challenging, but we are also nurturing and supportive. We have an outstanding faculty who are here because of the depth of their knowledge and their passion to teach, but most importantly because of their love for working with young people.
We are committed to excellence in all that we do. We are a school that asks important questions, that promotes the belief in a power beyond ourselves, and that works hard to develop character.
We are committed to coeducation because the world is coed and it is important for girls to learn how to work with boys and for boys to learn to work with girls. We also believe in coeducation because we believe in the value of diversity. Diversity begins with coeducation.
I am delighted that you are taking the time to read about Episcopal, but there is no substitute for visiting our new campus and giving our students and teachers the opportunity to tell you about their school. This is a very special place and we would be pleased to have the opportunity to share its history and vision with you.
