Episcopal Urban School Alliance (EUSA)

A growing number of Episcopal schools are being established in historically under-served, low-income communities. These schools were and continue to be founded by visionary Episcopal educators and clergy moved to fill a pressing educational need, and by parishes or dioceses seeking to make a significant difference on behalf of children and families in poverty. The Episcopal Urban School Alliance (EUSA) brings together these schools for professional development, fellowship, and the development of a common mission. For a nominal extra fee, qualified schools can join EUSA.
