From the Head of School

Welcome to St. Matthew’s!

Pre-schoolers play in the sand, learn about letters and numbers, and watch nature unfold right outside their giant picture windows. Eighth graders speak to the community in Chapel, lead service efforts affecting people across the globe, and develop rich and robust academic careers. Students of every grade level in between delve into inquiry, research, performance, and writing. They become philosophers and mathematicians, artists and athletes, scientists and inventors. They are learning to change the world.

St. Matthew’s strives to be a place of joyful discovery for every facet of a child – mind, body, and spirit. Our young ones grow and explore under the watchful eyes of outstanding and experienced educators who nurture intellect, guide social-emotional development, and motivate commitment to causes greater than oneself. Our Episcopal tradition inspires us to pursue academic excellence, true service, and inclusion and celebration in all areas of school life.

Whether you are a return visitor or just learning about us for the first time, I invite you to spend some time perusing our website. Absorb all we have to offer your child and your family. Think of questions to ask when you come on a tour. Feel the power of the welcoming community that drew my wife and me to St. Matthew’s. Discover the school where you belong.

I look forward to seeing you on campus!
