Welcome to Middle School.
At Episcopal, our mission is to challenge and nurture Mind, Body, and Spirit. In Middle School, we work to ensure our students will thrive academically, learn the importance of teamwork, and build the confidence necessary to succeed in Upper School, college, and beyond.
The Middle School enjoys its own spirited identity at Episcopal while still remaining connected to the Upper and Lower Schools. It is a place where there are opportunities for students to develop a sense of belonging, ownership and responsibility for not only the Episcopal community, but for the communities that surround us. The Stripes serve as the foundation of all of our interactions to inspire students to lead lives of purpose, faith, and integrity.
Our rigorous academic program empowers students to pursue knowledge, big ideas, and questions. Dedicated faculty use a variety of instructional strategies to foster curiosity, exploration, and creativity. Students also participate in interscholastic sports and are challenged to develop organizational and time management skills, study habits, and habits of mind that support individual growth.
Chapel and advisory programs empower students to acquire important life skills and develop the character and confidence required to make good decisions, engage fully, and act mindfully. We encourage and teach our students to reflect on the many ways they interact with the community and strive to help them see different perspectives in all that we do.
Our ultimate goal is that students will leave Middle School as critical thinkers, independent and lifelong learners, strong communicators, healthy risk takers, and good global citizens.
