Joy marked an historic day for Episcopal Collegiate School on October 4 as sixth Head of School Christopher R. Tompkins was installed by The Right Reverend Larry Benfield, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas. More than 500 attended the service at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Little Rock to witness and bless the change in leadership. Guests included The Rev. John Thomas of Frederica Academy in Georgia, who delivered the Sermon, as well as members of the Board of Trustees, parents, students, faculty, staff, and clergy.
Episcopal Collegiate School is pleased to announce that four seniors have been honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) for their performance in the nation's foremost academic competition. Will Baker, John Cai, and Adrianne Owings were named National Merit Semifinalists. Harris Bethel earned the designation of Commended Student for his high scores. These students represent nearly 10 percent of the Episcopal Collegiate senior class and the top one percent of U.S. high school seniors.
Episcopal Collegiate School announced today that more than half of its students enrolled in the Upper School in 2014-15 (53.2% or 109 students) sat for 16 different Advanced Placement Exams and completed 223 individual examinations. The number of AP students and exams are both records for Episcopal Collegiate School and are strong indicators of the School's ongoing dedication to a rich, dynamic, and advanced education.
