Something Bigger Than Ourselves
Since its founding, Episcopal High School has maintained a commitment to developing the spiritual life of each student. Episcopal, as the name would imply, is an Episcopal school, but what does that mean?
For us, it means you will see the liturgy of the Episcopal Church in our services. It means we offer a weekly optional Sunday services with communion. It means we offer baptism and confirmation to community members who are seeking that when the Bishop of Virginia comes to visit every spring.
What being an Episcopal school also means is that we are a community that works to draw the circle wide to mirror the diversity of our community, including all faith traditions, cultures, races, gender and sexual identities, and community members who choose not to participate in organized religion.
Being in Washington, D.C., we are fortunate to have many houses of worship, including synagogues and mosques, where students can seek an off-campus experience and we offer a worship shuttle on the weekends. We also offer a Christian Fellowship group and an affinity group for non-Christian students for more intentional fellowship.
