The development of each student’s mind, body, and spirit begins in PreKindergarten and continues through Senior year. Episcopal’s safe and encouraging atmosphere communicates, above all, that learning is fun. Students learn to focus their thinking, and develop an insatiable desire for knowledge. Episcopal responds with a dynamic, experiential education that asks students to stretch themselves: to learn by doing; to catch their teachers’ excitement; to achieve more than they ever imagined. Close contact with faculty enhances the quality of learning. In their roles as student advisors and athletic/extracurricular coaches, the teachers take notice and action- the “teacher-counselor-coach” tradition distinguishes Episcopal faculty.
