Spiritual Life

Since its founding, Episcopal High School has maintained a commitment to developing the spiritual life of each student. As an Episcopal school we are a community that works to draw the circle wide to mirror the diversity of our community, including all faith traditions, cultures, races, gender and sexual identities, and community members who choose not to participate in organized religion.

Real Talk

"The community of Episcopal is irreplaceable and has not only impacted my view of life but my individual character. I have grown into a more independent person, which allowed me to become the best version of myself."

"Everyone at EHS puts a special emphasis on seeing our students as individuals, each as a whole person, so they feel cared for and have a sense of belonging."

"The Episcopal High School experience changed the entire trajectory of my life. The institution boasts first-rate facilities, a rigorous academic curriculum, world-class social immersion, dedicated character development programming, highly competitive athletic opportunities, and diverse/global perspectives. I owe my service-oriented mindset and much of my success as a professional to the four years I spent as a boarding student in this experiential incubator."

Matt Hurley, '08

"I think what sets Episcopal apart from other comparable boarding schools is its unique location. Situated right outside the nation's capital, EHS students are constantly exposed to the world beyond just the high school. Very few high schoolers have the opportunity to attend a presidential inauguration, tour the pentagon, or work for a senator, and these are all common occurrences for Episcopal students."

"EHS surpassed my expectation of how they would help my son mature and grow. The staff are all very caring and they go above and beyond what they are expected to do. My son has developed lifelong friendships, learned new skills, and I am very confident that he will be prepared and accepted into is dream college."
