What does it mean to be an episcopal school?
Episcopal schools are challenged to integrate the physical, social, academic, and spiritual development of the whole child. As a group, Episcopal schools share:
- A belief in the fundamental unity of the global family
- A belief in the equality and dignity of all human beings
- A belief in the sacredness of every individual and his or her conscience
- A belief that love, compassion, unselfishness, and the force of inner truthfulness ultimately have greater power than hate, enmity, and self-interest
- A commitment by each member of the school community to grow in service to others
- A commitment to provide opportunities for worship and development of the spiritual life
- A commitment to engage freely in ethical and religious discussion, when appropriate, in all academic disciplines
- A commitment to an atmosphere of free inquiry in all academic pursuits as we seek the truth in a learning process unfettered by dogmatic considerations.
