A child is to be seen, heard, and appreciated

Self-esteem and self-respect grow when a school has intention to know a student's unique characteristics. In this way, a student gains the courage for self-advocacy, a powerful tool in their education.

Enthusiastic teachers spark inquisitive nature

An exceptional faculty engages children's innate curiosity. They grow awareness of diverse perspectives and build a capacity for empathy. It's a foundation to sustain inquiry and an active sense of social responsibility.

Genuine goodwill and respect invite participation

Words of welcome must extend well beyond the "front door." A community drawn together by a set of deep humanistic values becomes a place of partnership. It's a belonging propelled by a common purpose.

      “What really stands out for us is the amazing group of teachers and staff. We think they personify the mission of Episcopal Day: inspiring, challenging, and preparing students in their elementary and middle school years, in a caring and supportive environment. We’ve seen our kids thrive and grow each year, starting from Pre-K and now entering 8th grade!”

    • Evangelista Family

      “Episcopal Day School of St. Matthew is a warm community that extends well beyond the walls of the school. They do such a great job of integrating families through their many events and school traditions, that we have come to view the faculty, administrators, and all the other parents as part of our big extended family.“

    • Quarles Family

      “We felt instantly embraced whether it was our son’s 7th-grade advisor going the extra mile to expand his math horizons or our other son’s 4th-grade teacher making the incredible effort to attend one of his lacrosse games (with homemade signs and a cowbell to boot). We always felt our kids were a part of a unique environment that is diverse, inclusive and fosters a sense of deeply felt belonging.”
