Episcopal High School has been challenging students to develop the intellectual and moral courage necessary to lead lives of ethical leadership and service since 1839.
At Episcopal, honor is both a quest and an expectation, with the rigorous and collaborative pursuit of knowledge at the core of our academic experience. Passions, interests, and personal strengths are discovered when students are authentically engaged and powerfully immersed in intriguing, real-world experiences amidst the vast resources of Washington, D.C, and beyond.
We believe that we are all part of something greater than ourselves with the capacity and responsibility to be a force for good in the lives of others and that intellectual development and moral growth are best nurtured in a vibrant and diverse learning community where close relationships help us understand, appreciate, and bridge our differences.
Episcopal is the only 100% boarding school located in a major metropolitan area.
The McCain-Ravenel Center for Intellectual and Moral Courage coordinates all signature initiatives at EHS: the Washington Program, Global Programs, Leadership & Ethics, Outdoor Leadership, Service Learning, and Senior Externship Experience.
