Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

The mission of Grace Episcopal School is to nurture a learning community that promotes academic excellence in the Episcopal tradition, and encourages spiritual growth, moral responsibility, and service to others. We educate the whole child intellectually, spiritually, physically, and socially, and build a solid foundation and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.


Founded in 1959, Grace Episcopal School is charged by the Vestry of Grace Episcopal Church to provide a Christ-centered, co-educational school. Grace Episcopal School is a small school by design. Its size and educational philosophy enables the faculty and staff to develop fully the individual potential of each of the students - academically, socially, and morally - in a loving, nurturing environment. Individual attention to our students is stressed throughout an academically challenging curriculum.

Grace Episcopal School is also one of the ways in which Grace Episcopal Church serves its surrounding community. The students and faculty of this co-educational school represent a variety of racial, ethnic, economic, and religious backgrounds. We value and encourage this diversity as we seek to help each child to discover the same in other students and faculty at the school.

Grace Episcopal School seeks to build a strong cognitive foundation in its students that will help prepare them for a lifetime of challenges and continued academic success in future schools. Moreover, as an Episcopal Church School, it also seeks to accomplish something more: A strong spiritual and ethical base relevant to each child's age, provided in partnership with the families of the student and drawing on the traditions of the Episcopal Church.

Character Pledge

We, who are members of the Grace Episcopal School community, seek to live lives of Christian values and good character. We believe that good character grows from daily acts of honesty, respect, responsibility, compassion, and courage. We pledge ourselves to develop these ideals with integrity, striving to do what is right at all times.

Non-Discriminatory Policy

Grace Episcopal School admits students of any race, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school, and further, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, or otherwise discriminate in violation of federal, state or local law.
