Our caring community is supported by committed faculty.
liberal arts curriculum and the four pillars
The school's traditional liberal arts curriculum prepares the college-bound student by focusing on effective communications, critical thinking, problem-solving and technical skills. The same quest for excellence that drives our academic program shapes our commitment to programs in athletics, the arts, our spiritual life and our dedication to service to others. These areas of campus life form the Four Pillars to which the school is dedicated. Through the opportunities the Four Pillars provide, students may experience not only the self-discipline and exertion of a competitive sport, but also the development and growth of their creative talents, the deepening of their faith, and a lifelong desire to serve others.
The school's faculty displays an outstanding academic background, excellent character, and dedication to the overall well-being of the students. Episcopal employs more than 100 faculty members, all of whom have four-year degrees or higher – 65% have graduate degrees, and 3% have earned a Ph.D. Annually, Episcopal invests heavily in professional development and training for faculty and staff, ensuring best practices and innovative teaching methods are continually incorporated into our classrooms. The faculty affirms the ultimate worth of each student to form healthy self-esteem and respect for others.
