Wildcat Community

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.

How do I get a vehicle permit sticker?

In order to keep our campus safe and maintain accurate records of vehicles allowed on campus, parents and drivers must register their vehicles annually. For your protection and convenience, we recommend registering all vehicles that may come on campus. Stickers are available in each division’s reception area and should be placed in the front window on the bottom left driver side.

Vehicle Registration Form

How does my student pay for lunch?

Participation in the program for the 2017-2018 school year is optional. Students will be enrolled in the program by default and families must notify the School if they elect for a student not to participate. The online enrollment process includes a step to notify the School of intent not to participate. An option is provided that allows a student access to “drinks only” if he/she chooses to bring their lunch.

Episcopal Collegiate School's dining program is managed by SAGE Dining Services.

Breakfast is available each day that school is in session and is an a la carte program. The family FACTS account will be charged based on what is purchased each day.

The lunch program is an all-inclusive, all you can eat program. Numerous menu options are available each day, with an emphasis on the availability of healthy options. Students that participate in the lunch program will have the monthly fee billed to their family’s account through FACTS. Charges for any breakfast items purchased will also be charged to the account and billed on a monthly basis.
