The Episcopal experience is framed by the understanding that spiritual growth is an essential part of human growth.

In keeping with the tradition of the Episcopal Church, we require our students to think critically, explore their individual faiths, learn by questioning, and accept that knowledge of the world and spiritual development are eternally intertwined.

Guided by the life and ministry of Jesus, we respect the dignity of every human being.  As a school in the Episcopal tradition, we welcome students, faculty, and staff from all faith traditions. There is a richness that comes from a community which is inclusive, accepting, and receptive of a wide breadth of faith traditions and other differences. At ESJ, like all other Christian communities, it is all about relationships – our relationship with God and our relationship with others. As we focus on our relationship with God and with others, we gather together each week for Chapel. Worship is inclusive and creative in the Episcopal tradition. As we center our hearts and minds on God, we are better able to serve others in our own communities as well as in the greater world around us.
