Vision Statement

In commemoration of 50 years of black student life, Episcopal High School seeks to honor those courageous pioneering students who forever transformed the institution into a place where the dreams of all students could be nurtured and supported regardless of race or ethnic identity. This commemoration year also aims to acknowledge the past while fostering the exchange of ideas across generations to illuminate ways the school will approach and embrace its next fifty years of inclusiveness, intellectual inquiry, and moral courage.
