Welcome from the Head of School
Welcome to Episcopal!
My family and I have been heartened by this refrain as we’ve been embraced by this caring community, and it is my honor now to extend the same greeting to you and yours.
You’ll quickly discover that an Episcopal education is as rich as the human experience. Our students are intellectual, physical, creative, and spiritual beings who strive for happiness and a higher purpose; our School reflects and encourages these essential, complementary pursuits.
Our faculty and staff are a nurturing and innovative team. They are passionate classroom teachers and so much more as they mentor, coach, and direct those in their care. Their students’ academic success is not only measured by impressive college acceptance rates, but moreover in the grit, curiosity, and compassion that creates lifelong learners and much-needed leaders. Weekly chapel services, honor education, and a strong tradition of community service uphold the call to “respect the dignity of every human being” as we contemplate our place in the world.
From the newly broken ground at the Knight Campus to the recently renovated Bryan library, from the soaring voices and stained glass in the Davis Chapel to buildings and conversations in-the- round at Parks and Lastinger Halls, our beautiful campus provides an inspiring environment in which to grow. Our home on the St. John’s River hums with life as our calendar overflows with academic opportunities, athletic competitions, and artistic endeavors, while our burgeoning International Studies program takes students far and wide to explore other cultures and further discover themselves.
After Commencement, a tight-knit alumni community continues to enjoy the Episcopal experience through school-supported programs and networking events around the nation. Career advice, internship opportunities, and connections between alumni of all ages are encouraged. Your student might leave campus, but Episcopal never leaves your student, even after graduation. As our global network of alumni says, “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle!”
We look forward to welcoming your family to campus. I hope you’ll experience the excellence and the difference of an Episcopal education and choose to be a part of our community.
The Rev. Adam Greene
Head of School
