Welcome to Episcopal Collegiate and thank you for your interest in our school. As a PK-3 through 12th grade school, we offer a unique opportunity for students and families of all ages and walks of life to experience the difference an Episcopal Collegiate education can make.
It is an investment that holds promise — a promise that opens a world of possibilities for your child; a promise that affords every child an opportunity to be surrounded by caring adults who know them well and are committed to their personal growth; a promise that prepares each child for success in college and the world beyond.
We take our mission seriously. Without a doubt, we are dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence. We are known for this, but offer so much more. We affirm the importance of our faith in God and understand the transformative power of competitive athletics and performing and visual arts. We nurture a joy in learning and help students discover and pursue their passions. We hold students to high standards and work hard to understand how best to equip each student to meet them. We believe in personal responsibility and provide developmentally appropriate levels of support, encouragement, accountability, and grace. We not only provide students opportunities to lead, but we intentionally focus on developing their leadership skills. We serve our community, but we strive to do so in ways that impact our students as much as those they are serving.
We are a community. Our classrooms, courts, playing fields, and studios are filled with creative and dedicated teachers, students, and parents who embrace the challenges of living out our mission. We expect a lot of ourselves but embrace setbacks and mistakes as opportunities to grow. We possess a diverse set of beliefs, interests and talents, but a shared commitment to excellence and a deep appreciation for one another. We are bound together by our belief in the dignity and worth of every human being and the respect they deserve. We are bound by our belief in honor. We are bound by our love of this school. We are bound by our belief in the promise of our students and our commitment to them.
As you explore these pages, we trust that you will see how we live our mission in support of and in service to our students. However, we also invite you to come for a visit so that you can experience first-hand the difference that our student-centric focus can make in the life of your child. Our Office of Admission is happy to arrange your visit.
