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.

Episcalum News

Dear Wildcats,

Welcome to the inaugural Episcopal Collegiate School Episcalum newsletter. I hope you enjoy these updates from our school and your fellow alumni. I invite you to visit the alumni section of our website for more news Click here for more alumni news

The 2017-2018 year was filled with alumni visits to campus and several social gatherings. Members of the Class of 2007 kicked off the year with their ten year reunion on Alumni Weekend in October. The festivities included a Friday night tailgate before the game, a campus tour on Saturday morning, and a Saturday night celebration at Samantha's Private Dining Room. Class of 2007 Reunion Chairman Anne-Elizabeth (Snowden) Wynne shared, "From the moment we started planning to seeing pictures after the reunion, I could not stop smiling at all the fun we had. I feel like everyone literally picked up where we left off ten years ago, and that is something really special." To see 2008 Ten Year Reunion pictures, click here
