Academics

Episcopal’s challenging curriculum is thoughtfully designed to prepare students to be successful in some of the most selective universities in the country.  An Episcopal education instills a passion for life-long learning and dedication to living as citizens of strong character. 

 

At Episcopal, a learner-centered approach is the core of our academic program. We address the distinct learning needs, interests, aspirations, and cultural backgrounds of our students. The thoughtfully designed daily schedule at Episcopal increases effectiveness in teaching and learning and provides increased opportunities for learner-centered pedagogical instruction, collaboration, teacher accessibility, and advising. All courses are grounded in the teaching of solid fundamentals, from basic algebraic skills to well-constructed, tightly written paragraphs.  Fundamentals are only the beginning - at Episcopal we challenge students to think critically, and synthesize skills and information.  Students are challenged to think conceptually rather than to simply memorize and recite.
