Rooted in the best principles of Episcopal education, St. Matthew’s welcomes students from all religions, denominations, faiths and also, those with no faith background. Approximately 10% of the students are Episcopalian, which is typical for Episcopal schools. We engage in inclusive common worship, are committed to academic rigor and intellectual inquiry, respect the dignity of every human being, appreciate the cultural, racial, socio-economic and religious diversity of our community and world.
The Episcopal Church of St. Matthew has an abiding commitment to education since 1865, when it established St. Matthew’s Hall, a military boarding school for boys. The same commitment to education and inquiry has remained consistent through several iterations and continues today at St. Matthew's Episcopal Day School, founded in its present form in 1953.
