The Gifts of Episcopal Schools

The gifts of Episcopal schools are their “generous comprehensiveness, patience with ambiguity, and a search for wisdom grounded in a deep and abiding belief in the goodness and creativity of the world,” according to Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.

These gifts make Episcopal schools particularly suited to forming leaders for an increasingly globalized and interconnected world, she adds.

"Episcopal education is about the big picture … overseeing, climbing up the hill in a strategic sense to see the whole landscape, and not only the immediate and very local context,” says Jefferts Schori. “It is about comprehension and inclusiveness; it’s an orientation toward the whole body rather than only one part."
