Episcopal Tradition

Episcopal Tradition

Our school philosophy is rooted in Episcopal principles, guiding our students to build lives of genuine meaning, purpose, and service within their community.
As a result, we welcome families from many faith backgrounds, as well as those without a defined faith tradition. Through social justice education and experiences, we provide an environment where intellectual and spiritual wonder are valued, where love and kindness toward one another are pivotal, and where contributing to the common good is celebrated and expected. As a result, our students are compassionate, capable leaders.

The Episcopal tradition at St. Anne's School is:

  • Far reaching—it encompasses both the heart and the mind. It demonstrates and proclaims the unique worth and beauty of all human beings, from increasingly diverse religious, cultural, and economic backgrounds.
  • Part of our community's culture — We believe that everyone should use their own gifts to help others. At St. Anne’s School, we value and emphasize a community life in which the physical, spiritual, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured. Service learning is an integral part of the life of the school. 
  • Inclusive — Students, faculty, and staff come together each week for regular chapel and worship services that are welcoming of all faith backgrounds, engaging, and age-appropriate. Families in our school community are always welcome at our services.
