Why BES?

Good question. We're glad you asked.
Beaches Episcopal School is a place where students can reach their fullest potential as they learn with ambition, love with purpose, and lead with courage. The educational experience at BES not only prepares them to be successful in middle, high school, and college, but also sets them on a trajectory toward living remarkable lives.

That's a bold statement, but one we have seen come to fruition over 60 years. To find out more, we invite you to first explore this website and then come by our campus for a visit. .

We are a community of...


Curious Thinkers

To pursue knowledge, to invite curiosity and creativity, and to contribute ideas in a nurturing environment.

Proactive Leaders

To be a positive role model to others, to take the lead on initiatives, to welcome challenges, and to proactively pursue excellence in every area of life.

Out-of-the-Box Innovators

To think beyond the box of what is known, utilizing personal strengths to discover methods or mechanisms that better the world in a tangible way.

Talented Creators

To use God-given talents in various mediums, artistically or academically, introducing ideas either independently or in collaboration with peers for the greater good.

Compassionate Givers

To have the heart of a servant, realizing we were created by God for the purpose of loving others and investing into the local or global community by giving our time, talent, and resources to become contributing members of society.

When I think of BES, it is always with a sense of pride and admiration for the love of learning that has been instilled, for the lifelong friendships that have been made, and for the enrichment of childhood memories that will last a lifetime.
