    My children have been attending Episcopal Academy for 5 years and started in the Lower School. I could not be happier with the school as a whole but more specifically the incredible faculty, support staff, and compassionate/nurturing environment that our school fosters. Yes it is academically rigorous and yes your children will be challenged but our students have access to so many incredible resources to help support them along the way. I question whether my children would have reached their full potential in all components of "mind, body, spirit" if we sent them anywhere else. Episcopal Academy is not just a school but a one-of-a-kind community that we are proud to be part of!

    The Episcopal Academy is a K-12 school that is the perfect combination of excellent academics, top notch sports and the cultivation of thoughtful and considerate young people as they grow through the program. They accomplish this with amazing teachers, coaches, administrators, a focus on both arts and sciences (their lower school music program is unparalleled), and a chapel program that emphasizes the EA stripes of faith, generosity and gratitude. I have 3 children at EA and continue to be impressed by the schools overall excellence!
    I've had a very positive experience at The Episcopal Academy. I currently have children in the Upper, Middle and Lower Schools and all are very happy to be there. It is a warm and welcoming community. It has an amazing campus with state of the art facilities and resources for the arts and athletics and everything in between. It has top-notch teachers who want to help your children succeed. I can't say that the school will get your child into a better college than another school but your child will definitely be positioned for success once they get there!
