Our Episcopal Identity

School Worship

Creative, inclusive, and drawing fully upon the liturgical resources of The Episcopal Church, worship is a regular part of school life for all faculty and students.

Community Life

Reflection, prayer, and matters of the spirit are honored and cultivated and the physical, mental, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured.

Religious Study

Meaningful, academically substantive, and age-appropriate; and in teaching the Christian tradition, fosters dialogue with other faith traditions.

Social Justice

Equity, justice, and a just society throughout the life of the school; the embracing and honoring of diversity; and the inclusion of community service and service learning into the life of the school.

Admission Process

Episcopal Collegiate seeks to bring together a group of talented and capable students who will benefit and grow from our dynamic and nurturing environment. The Admission Committee evaluates each student on the basis of a personal visit, admission testing, academic record, and teacher recommendations (all requirements are grade and age appropriate). The committee also places an emphasis on citizenship, emotional maturity, curiosity and intellectual ability. Episcopal Collegiate best serves those students who are prepared and motivated to meet the requirements of a college preparatory environment.

We are pleased you are exploring Episcopal Collegiate and look forward to working with you during this exciting time for you and your family. Our process is designed to be personalized and we want to ensure your experience will help guide you in finding the best fit. Below you will find helpful information to guide you through the admission process.
