Mission Statement


St. Elizabeth’s is an intentionally inclusive Episcopal School with a commitment to excellence that inspires learning and transforms lives. 

Intentionally Inclusive

St. Elizabeth's purposefully works to create a place of belonging for a diverse community in terms of race, ethnicity, family composition, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. We center equity, access, and inclusion in our work and seek varied perspectives and lived experiences. 

Episcopal School

St. Elizabeth's is rooted in the values and traditions of the Episcopal faith, which emphasize equity, social justice, intellectual curiosity, and compassion.  We also invite and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We are not affiliated with a church or congregation. St. E’s welcomes different perspectives, belief-systems, and faith traditions.

Commitment to Excellence

St. Elizabeth’s is committed to developing well-rounded students—academically, socially, and emotionally.  Our graduates are fully prepared to transition to high school and beyond as learners, leaders, and citizens who are secure in their ability to persist and pursue the very best version of themselves.

Inspires Learning

St. Elizabeth’s teachers are experts in research-based teaching and learning. Our small class sizes enable us to understand the needs of each student and differentiate instruction. Our teachers design engaging educational experiences that are purposeful and culturally-responsive. 

Transforms Lives 

Learning at St. Elizabeth’s happens in the classroom and within our diverse community, helping our students grow in their understanding of themselves and others.  As a result of their education at our school, graduates are poised to become compassionate leaders and global citizens who positively impact the world around them.

In order to fulfill this mission, St. Elizabeth’s School is anchored in our core values:


We act with grace, generosity, and humility. We recognize our responsibility to care with love and kindness for ourselves and one another. Every member of St. Elizabeth's is known, seen, accepted, and belongs. 


We foster a culture of wonder and inquiry and learn from others’ perspectives and experiences. We are relentless in our pursuit of wisdom and open our minds and hearts for growth. 


We develop courage as leaders and listeners to advocate for ourselves and others, to think critically, to self-reflect, and to make thoughtful decisions. Courage guides us as we seek to understand ideas other than our own and to take action to better ourselves and the world around us.


Together, we build a dynamic culture by weaving together people from all backgrounds including economic status, race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, political affiliations, family composition, sexual orientation, and gender identity.  We connect with others through our united investment in our students, school, and the work of creating a more equitable and just world.
