The Honor Code Signing is an Episcopal Collegiate tradition meant to remind our community of its obligation to the values of Respect, Reverence, and Responsibility, the tenets upon which our Honor Code is based. With each signature, our students, teachers, and faculty members pledge to uphold the Honor Code in mind, body, and spirit, thereby promoting honesty and integrity with each homework assignment, test, or essay.
The Class of 2019 gathered together for one final celebration as a class before heading to college. Episcopal Collegiate's annual send-off party was hosted by Dr. and Mrs. David Perkinson in August, and our newest alumni along with their parents and teachers, enjoyed reminiscing over dinner before moving to to attend nineteen colleges in thirteen states this fall.
We are thrilled to have students, faculty, and staff back on campus. We hope everyone had a great first day of school! Click here for a full photo album of the day!

In the fall of 2017, 1.6 million members of this year's graduating class took the PSAT, which for juniors serves as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, or NMSQT. Of those 1.6 million students, approximately 16,000--just less than 1%--are recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as National Merit Semifinalists for their scores on the test.
On May 18, 2019, Episcopal Collegiate School celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2019. The ceremony was held outside on the Episcopal quad for the first time since 2012. Episcopal Collegiate School Board of Trustee members and Episcopal faculty and staff began the procession. The Class of 2019 followed close behind, ringing the bell before walking onto the commencement stage.
What activities are you involved in after school? If you ask the "average" student, their answers will vary. Many participate in sports, arts, or music, but one Episcopal Collegiate School Junior, Rand Brewer, will give you a different answer. "I race drones," says Brewer. That's right, Brewer is an avid drone man and was recently drafted onto a professional drone racing team.
On April 11, 12, and 13, a cast and crew of more than 50 students from the middle and upper schools will perform the contemporary musical, Big Fish!
