Washington Episcopal School helps children become kind, confident, and prepared global citizens who are ready to make contributions to their communities. Our curriculum challenges students to embrace academic rigor in an appropriately balanced and supportive environment.
Our students develop a moral and ethical compass through our virtues program, engaging with values such as courage, humility, and compassion. Through hands-on projects and multiple public-speaking opportunities, our students learn how to take risks and self-advocate, building resilience and leadership.
Program highlights include our Middle School study trips. Every child explores the geology of Southwest Utah in Grade 6, explores the history and culture of Italy in Grade 7, and puts their language skills to the test in France or Spain in Grade 8.
We are a diverse, inclusive community that respects individual differences, develops every child’s unique talents, and fosters learning inside & outside the classroom.
Experiential Study Trips
We believe learning should be joyous, and we cultivate a sense of wonder, curiosity, and critical thinking through our experiential study trips. Whether it's traveling to a local farm so our PK3 students can feel the soft hair on a baby goat or helping our Grade 8 students put their language skills to the test in France or Spain, a WES education brings knowledge out of books and into the world.
