Welcome to Our School
As Head of School, I greet you with great pleasure and welcome you to our warm and inclusive community of Saints. As you consider and explore HSES, you will discover that our mission, combined with research and best practices, drive our decisions for achieving excellence. Holy Spirit Episcopal School offers an exemplary education for infants through grade eight that develops the whole child while achieving academic excellence in a dynamic, faith-based environment.
At HSES, nurturing educators transform the hearts and minds of students, preparing each of them to serve and lead in the modern world. Smaller class sizes allow students to feel a sense of security and belonging. Our students are known by name, unconditionally loved and valued, and their voices are heard. We believe each child is unique with inherent interests, gifts and talents. We offer a student-centered curriculum that is academically challenging while encouraging curiosity, interaction, and discovery. Our students are also immersed in fine arts, challenged by athletic pursuits, and inspired by faith experiences that serve as a foundation for developing servant leadership that is based upon strong character and compassion for others.
In addition to the care and attention we give to your child's academic and emotional development, we also understand our responsibility for keeping our community safe during this time of uncertainty due to COVID-19. HSES is committed to creating a school environment that includes protocols to protect our beloved community from the risk of spread and to provide on-campus instruction for students. We have the ability to spread out within our campus and we are surrounded by beautiful outdoor spaces to extend learning, great advantages as we navigate the challenges of social distancing. Your safety will always be our top priority!
At Holy Spirit Episcopal School, #HSESstrong is more than a saying, it’s how we demonstrate resilience in the face of challenges while loving one another. This is what truly defines us as a community. If you are new to HSES, we hope you’ll join us for a tour. We look forward to meeting you soon!
