A message to you from the Head of School

Welcome to Beaches Episcopal School! We have been educating children and building character in the beaches community for over 60 years. From its early beginnings as a small and intimate school for young children, Beaches Episcopal School remains clearly focused on cultivating students of character with intellectual curiosity and sound moral character. I am eager for you to browse through this website to learn more about this excellent school, its programs, and mission.

We believe that in order to provide a solid foundation for our children, we must help our students grow intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically in an environment that is safe and allows them to take reasonable risks in their learning. A challenging curriculum, which includes the arts, foreign language, physical education, technology, Christian formation, and music, helps develop inquisitive and creative minds.
