The National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES) is an independent, 501(c)(3), voluntary membership organization that supports, serves, and advocates for the vital work and ministry of nearly 1,200 Episcopal schools, early childhood education programs, and school establishment efforts throughout The Episcopal Church.

Chartered in 1965, with historic roots dating to the 1930s, NAES is the only pre-collegiate educational association that is both national in scope and Episcopal in character.

NAES advances Episcopal education and strengthens Episcopal schools through essential services, resources, conferences, and networking opportunities on Episcopal school identity, leadership, and governance, and on the spiritual and professional development of school leaders.

By serving those who serve Episcopal schools, we seek to foster excellence through association.

Please consider supporting NAES, and by extension, the work of Episcopal schools around the world! Your donation goes directly to support the work of NAES, and a portion is also set aside to support our members through Outreach Grants. Thank you for your generosity!
