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.

A Note From Mrs. Schuhmacher...

This week, we enjoyed watching our first-grade students migrate all the way to Mexico during our 10th annual Monarch Migration. Students wore their monarch wing creations and enjoyed a fun treat at the end of their journey. Second-grade students also participated this year in a special way by holding flowers to represent the Monarch Waystation they helped develop last year... click the photo to read the full story.

A Note from Dr. McCormick...

This week, I had the honor of speaking in chapel and chose to talk about the extremely positive influence mentors have had on my character and personal/professional growth, as well as how independent schools like ours are great laboratories for both cultivating mentors and practicing mentorship. The text of my talk may be found here.

A Note from Mr. Urquhart...

While our tenth-grade and eleventh-grade students were taking the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, our ninth-grade students spent the morning in North Little Rock volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
