Our course of study includes a literary based language arts program, the University of Chicago’s Everyday Math through fifth grade, experiential laboratory science, and social studies. World language instruction begins in Junior Kindergarten. Using our extensive library collections and two computer labs, Episcopal students learn to access information and develop critical research and communication strategies.
“Our school mission says we aim to help students become 'citizens of the world' and that starts with engagement here in their local community. We hope to see students develop a lifelong commitment to service."
— Father Josh Hill, Chaplain
All students attend daily chapel services designed for students of all faiths. The Service of Daily Morning Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer is adapted for use with children. Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Feast Days. Both services are long-standing Anglican traditions. A lay chaplain or member of the area clergy lead services.
It is not the intent of the school to convert non-Episcopalian students. Members of other faiths and denominations are invited to share their traditions, celebrate holidays and invite their religious leaders to be involved in the chapel services.
While no student is required to make any statement of belief with which they or their families disagree, or partake of Holy Communion, it is hoped that all students will experience a time of spiritual refreshment throughout their participation and attendance.
Once accepted, new National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) members will be sworn-in during a special NJHS induction ceremony. This is a great way for children to join a national academic culture and begin to network with other students. From an early age, we encourage our students to be active in the scholastic community.
