Episcopal’s mission is to prepare young people with the intellectual and moral courage to act with integrity and honor, stand up for what is right, demonstrate empathy and respect, lead with humility and kindness, and approach the world with curiosity and an open mind that values diverse perspectives. Strong community and a sense of equity are central to achieving this mission because they are at once instructive and liberating, enabling students to thrive alongside one another while growing into their best selves.
The Office of Community & Equity supports the School's mission by nurturing a vibrant, diverse learning environment premised on the dignity and respect made possible through mutual appreciation and self-discovery.
Whether working closely with individual students or across programming initiatives, the Office endeavors to weave understanding, appreciation, and the bridging of differences into everything Episcopal does in order to promote a culture of belonging for everyone. We believe that upon that foundation--and endowed with the skills required for its creation--students are better prepared “to pursue lives of ethical leadership and service as citizens of an increasingly connected world.”
