Mission Statement:

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

St. Mark's Episcopal Academy is dedicated to providing a quality education for all students. We believe that students learn best when they are engaged and stimulated. We are committed to a model of continuous improvement and to creating an environment conducive to meaningful learning and achievement.

School History:

Through the vision of our first principal, The Reverend Edward B. King, St. Mark’s Day School was founded in 1956. At that time, the school consisted of only the first and second grades, and classes were taught in Thursby Hall. It was not until 1957 that a new building with cloisters was built in order to accommodate the inclusion of third and fourth grade classes. By the academic year 1959-60, all six grades were being taught. On May 29, 1960, we had our first sixth grade graduating class of 15 students.
Over the years, as changes have occurred in methodology and techniques, at least two constants remain: to provide a comprehensive education for children of diverse backgrounds and faiths in a caring, cheerful, and supportive environment and to provide an educational program that will encourage students to love and serve God and others.

Notes/School Information:

Vision
The Academy recognizes the profound obligation of parents and educators to provide our next generation with a scholarly foundation. To that end, the school will focus on the tools and skills that all students will need to create for themselves a sound, productive, and fulfilling life.

Students will learn in a safe and caring atmosphere with clear expectations of behavior, which emphasize respect, responsibility, and caring for others. The Academy will recognize the values of tolerance and diversity in its own community life. The spiritual life of the Academy will be centered in the chapel.

The Academy will provide an educational program that will encourage students to love and serve God and others. It will prepare students for higher education by means of an academically challenging and creative learning environment. Above all, it will seek to develop within each student a love for life-long learning, a strong sense of self-worth, respect for God's creation, and the dignity of every human being.
