My children attended Holy Comforter Episcopal School PK-8th grade. Both of them loved their time at HCES and received a fabulous education that has carried them into high school and college. They still talk about their special times at HCES and treasure those years that they had in such a loving and nurturing environment. It is truly a special place!

I am an alum of HCES and had the great opportunity to come home and work. Holy Comforter prepared me to succeed academically and as a person. As a child, I would love to come to school and now I love coming to work. It`s still that same loving, caring environment in which you learn the tools to succeed in life.

I love this school, both of children were seen as people, not test scores. The well-rounded people they become is in part to this school. Thank you.

Some of my most precious memories are from my time as a student at Holy Comforter Episcopal School. Not only did I receive a phenomenal education but also the loving, nurturing environment taught me what it means to have empathy, love and humility for others. Basically, how to be a good person. A HCES administrator recently said, "Academics are important, yes, of course. However, if our graduates are "A" students but are mean individuals (jerks)...we have failed." In today's world, this statement couldn't be more important and true. At Holy Comforter Episcopal School it's more than grades. It's about the whole individual/student.

My children attended HCES from PK through 8th grade. The education they received was outstanding and they enjoyed every minute. The academic and life lessons they learned helped them grow into the successful adults they are today.

When my wife and I first visited Holy Comforter I said, "I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else." Six years later I feel exactly the same way. Holy Comforter is exceptional academically and has a uniquely caring and inviting atmosphere. I am continually amazed by the capabilities and commitment of their faculty and administration.
