Episcopal is a vibrant and busy community with many opportunities for involvement for all members of the community - parents and grandparents, faculty and staff, students and alumni. From Fine Arts performances, athletic competitions, and community service opportunities to Homecoming, Chapel, A Vision for Art, and Boo Bash, Episcopal welcomes everyone to participate fully in the life of the school.
ESJ strives to create meaningful opportunities for students while ensuring a welcoming and inclusive environment on its campuses. Academic departments are, for the most part, separated by building. Classroom spaces are designed with specific disciplines, learner-centered teaching, and collaboration in mind, whether incorporating Harkness tables in English and History classrooms, mobile node seating in World Language classrooms, or lab spaces for Science and Robotics.
Their educational experience is enhanced by a wide variety of courses offered across the Four Pillars, which utilize dedicated visual and performing arts space, including two theaters, and athletic facilities, and classrooms. Students benefit from the open air setting along the St. Johns River and copious outdoor gathering spaces, including the beautiful Regan Plaza. It's not unusual to see students and faculty using these spaces for outdoor classes, group study, quiet reflection, or socializing during the breaks built into the daily schedule.
The Munnerlyn Campus offers more than 50 on-campus student groups and organizations, which are designed to improve the quality of campus life and to promote the development of responsible leaders. Student groups are activity, interest, or community service based and allow Middle School and Upper School students to develop personally while building relationships with others. Student groups are student-initiated and student-led with the support of a faculty/staff sponsor.
