Welcome to Our School

Dear Friends and Visitors to Holy Spirit Episcopal School:


As you explore HSES, it is our hope you will get a “snapshot” of who we are and what makes us unique. Founded in 1962, our school has grown from a neighborhood preschool to an eleven-acre campus of learners from infants through eighth grade. On our Journey to Excellence, we embrace five pillars that guide our leadership, our Episcopal Identity, our dedication to program excellence, our infrastructure, and our financial foundation.

We are a diverse community with many nationalities represented within our student body. Our curriculum and instruction is led by an exceptional team of learning specialists who support our talented teachers. Our students are guided by staff members who are certified in Gifted and Talented as well as SEL, our Social Emotional Learning approach to teaching.

At Holy Spirit, you will find a place for your child to flourish and succeed. Our Fine Arts Department allows students to sing, paint, perform and entertain. Last year, a Piano Lab was added to the school to allow our students to grow musically. Our Chapel services are led by the clergy of Holy Spirit Episcopal Church and we offer Christian Education and comparative religion classes to all Lower and Middle School students. We compete in PSIA (Private Schools Interscholastic Association) and provide opportunities for students to participate in organizations such as Student Council and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). We continue to enjoy solid ties with our sister school, St. Michael, in Costa Rica and are blessed to have a thriving Ecolink program, designed to foster respect, love and understanding for our environment while becoming self-reliant, independent thinkers. As you can read in this “snapshot”, we are committed to the whole student’s learning: intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

It is our intention to provide every child the opportunity to learn and grow in this nurturing, Christ-centered environment. We hope, after reading about our school, you will call our Admissions Office for a tour. We want to meet you and tell you more about our school community!
