Mission & Philosophy
St. Mark’s Episcopal School’s program of study is designed to provide a well-rounded experience that will help children grow intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually. We appreciate that children are unique individuals with differing needs and gifts that must be nurtured and developed. Helping children recognize their talents and abilities in order to experience success in academic and social situations is the key to healthy self-esteem.
At the core of St. Mark’s curriculum is the individualized nature of each child’s education. Our faculty strives to connect with students, to know each child as a learner, and to effectively partner with parents to best encourage and foster the strengths of our students.
The mission of St. Mark’s Episcopal School is to provide an academically enriched program in a nurturing Christian environment.
St. Mark’s believes in educating the whole child and aims not only to teach core academic subjects, but also to emphasize athletics, the arts, community service, character development, and spirituality. Christian education, chapel services, community outreach, and faculty mentoring guide our children to be conscientious and responsible citizens. In the spirit of Christ, all members of the St. Mark’s community are expected to respect the dignity of fellow human beings.
