The mission of Episcopal School of Jacksonville is to provide a superior college-preparatory education in an environment marked by high expectation, Christian nurture and social diversity. Through a balanced program of academics, arts, athletics and spiritual life, Episcopal’s faculty seeks to instill in each student intellectual growth, character development, responsible leadership and a commitment to community service.
A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE
Episcopal recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, a milestone that reinforces the school’s permanence and strength within the community. The school’s founders in their 1966 planning group document (“The Purple Book”) proposed the school’s goal to be graduating “leaders of men and doers of good.” Since 1966, Episcopal has lived up to its founding mission of excellence in academics, athletics, arts and servant leadership.
