Academics Overview

Episcopal's educational philosophy has been primarily articulated through a straightforward college preparatory program emphasizing academic excellence, balanced extra-curricular offerings, and service to the community.

An Episcopal education strives to develop individuals who:
  • practice the Gospel values of loving God and loving others as they love themselves
  • think and communicate with clarity and precision
  • exhibit curiosity, discernment, and reflection as life-long learners
  • achieve balanced lives based on spiritual, emotional and physical health
  • seek opportunities to lead and serve through civic participation and community outreach
  • make ethical decisions, act with integrity, and accept responsibility for their actions
  • demonstrate self-confidence and discipline in applying their unique gifts and talents
  • collaborate to accomplish goals, solve problems, and resolve conflict
  • recognize global interdependence, by working for justice, promoting peace, and protecting God's creation
  • manifest the living presence of God in their lives
The spiritual aspects, advisory program, academic expectations, and mission statement are what differentiate Episcopal's curriculum from other schools. The mission of Episcopal states that the school exists to nurture and develop the whole child, spiritually, intellectually, morally, physically, and artistically. This is accomplished through a challenging academic program, daily emphasis on worship and guidance opportunities, daily physical education classes for all students, a school-wide service learning/leadership program, and a superior fine arts program, which offer options for all students. Achievement test scores, ACT, SAT, PSAT scores, parent, faculty and student surveys, state mandates, national standards, learning style pedagogy and religious sources are consulted to create and develop the curriculum.
