Grandparents & Special Friends Program (Championship Gym) - 9:30 a.m.
Explore Lower School - 10:30 am
Upon arrival at the Lower School you will be greeted with an immersive indoor forest created by lower school students. This experience will include artwork by students in PreK through Kindergarten classes, and upon entering the commons you will be treated to an audio / visual installation inspired by Natasha Bowdoin’s “Spring Song” created by students in grades first through fifth. The Forest Walk will conclude with your journey through the Quinn Teaching Gardens, and you will have the opportunity to explore your grandchild’s classroom and meet their teachers.
Special thank you to Mrs. Saoud, Ms. McSpadden, Mother Curtis, and Mrs. Clark for curating such a special presentation.
Explore Middle and Upper School
Are you ready to be an Episcopal student? Take a walk down memory lane and put your student hat back on. A few members of our stellar faculty will be offering a variety of "demo classes" so you can quite literally get a feel for what our students take part in each day. Demo classes are open to all grandparents and we hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!

- “Verses vs. Verses” - Ms. Pam Lewis, English Department, Room MS 208
- "The Other World War II"- Dr. Bruce Hall, History Department, Simpson Library located in the Upper School

As you are touring the campus with your grandchild(ren), please take a few minutes to stop by the Erwin Library, located in the Middle School, to take part in our Broadcast class “Oral History Project”. This is fun opportunity for your grandchild(ren) to interview you about your time in school.
What if I have grandchildren in multiple divisions?
- We invite you to join your Middle School or Upper School grandchild in the Dining Hall (across from the Championship Gym). From there, we ask that you start your tour in your youngest grandchild’s division. Your elder grandchild will act as your very own Episcopal Collegiate tour guide! More details about offerings following the all-school program will be available soon.
Grandparents and friends play a special role in the development of a student’s learning and maturation. We are honored to have you, and your grandchildren, as part of our Episcopal Collegiate family. We would love to connect with you and invite you to support our students in a variety of ways. To learn more about events on campus, view our online calendar here.
Support of the Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund ensures that every Wildcat has a distinctive experience during their time here. This yearly need funds the ongoing investments in facilities, faculty, and programs that set the Episcopal experience apart.
Each year, the Annual Fund supports the School's operating budget, as the actual cost of educating one student is around $6,195 more than the average cost of tuition. That gap is funded by the School's generous endowment and the Annual Fund.
A gift to the Annual Fund impacts every aspect of student life from the hallways to the locker bays and from the classrooms to the court. By supporting the Annual Fund, you make a significant difference in the lives of all of our students.
