An Episcopal Education

We are a Christian community that welcomes all students of varying faiths to embark on a journey to discover what inspires their minds and fires their hearts. HIES is a place where the full spectrum of God’s presence in the world and in our lives is explored, deepened and celebrated. We affirm the gifts, faith traditions and backgrounds of all HIES students.
We encourage students to listen to the views, the hearts and the actions of others. We are a community of explorers drawing on curiosity, critical thinking and reason to deepen learning and strive for justice and equity.
We learn to think widely, deeply and boldly and to intellectually engage with the world and our roles in it. As an Episcopal school, we believe that learning is a critical and life-long skill we wish to instill in all.
As students embark on their HIES journey, we ask each student, “How will you impact the world? How will you strive for justice and peace among all people, recognize and respect the dignity of every human being?” We build change agents of all ages to serve others and transform the world.
We gather as a community, students, faculty and staff in weekly chapel services and beyond that affirm both our Christian traditions and religious diversity. We celebrate values that unite rather than divide, and we nurture the ethical and moral lives of all involved.
We believe God calls us to love. We are called to be a family based in love.
At Holy Innocents' Episcopal School, we believe that God is present in every person. We strive to respect the dignity of every human being. We value multiple voices and perspectives around all of life's questions, no matter what your family traditions. This intentional welcome, a radically inclusive way of life, is a hallmark of our mission as a Christian community that serves students of all faiths.
Spiritual inquiry and service are key to self-discovery and developing empathy for others. Inclusiveness, compassion, kindness, integrity – these are values that are taught, modeled and instilled across our school life.
As an Episcopal school, we believe 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.
Our spiritual life is intertwined within the life of the school. From the curriculum and weekly chapels to the many ways in which our sense of service to the world community manifests itself, our faith permeates our community. We share life as one community, together at HIES.
