School Notes

  • Episcopal is built on Four Pillars: academics, spiritual life, fine arts and athletics. These focus and encourage personal development in every aspect of our students' lives. The school's emphasis on balance between these four pillars is unique in Northeast Florida. The Harkness Method, used in many humanities classrooms, is an established and cherished way of instruction which fosters students` curiosity, initiative, personal confidence and problem-solving. Learner-centered teaching is the core of academics. Our service opportunities promote the development of responsible leaders who value citizenship and community. Episcopal believes that successful college decisions start with the student who is well informed and actively involved in the college search process. Through dedication and teamwork, Episcopal athletic programs annually compete for district, regional, and state championships. We take pride in our no-cut policy at the Middle School level, which allows every Episcopal student the experience of competing for our teams. The arts at Episcopal are the heartbeat that gives life to our campus and community. At the very center of who we are we find our visual and performing art students exploring, creating, and expressing all that they are learning through the medium of their art.
