Statement of Purpose

Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is committed to fostering a community that honors and is respectful of the diverse faiths, diversity of experiences and values in our community.

What is Multiculturalism at HIES?

At Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, we embrace cultures, backgrounds, ideas, and differences that enliven, broaden, and deepen who we are as one of the nation’s largest Episcopal Schools. We are devoted to cultivating a safe environment that empowers community members to discover and celebrate their identities and diverse backgrounds.

We are guided by both our identity as an independent Episcopal School and our school’s mission to have respect for self and others, as well as to respect the varied beliefs in our diverse educational and spiritual community.

Our aim is that through students' educational experiences they are ever mindful of their call to be globally minded, loving, responsible citizens who value the dignity and infinite worth of those in their community.

National Center for Civil and Human Rights

Holy Innocents' is a proud affiliate partner of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR).

The Center for Civil and Human Rights in downtown Atlanta is an engaging cultural attraction that connects the American civil rights movement to today's global human rights movements. The Center's purpose is to create a safe space for visitors to explore the fundamental rights of all human beings so that they leave inspired and empowered to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their communities.
