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.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, NAES relies on membership dues, charitable donations, and corporate subscription for its ability to provide essential services to its members.
“Episcopal schools connect the head to the heart; instilling enthusiasm, responsibility, and strong moral character in our students, while equipping them to excel both academically and socially.”— Kerin Hughes, Palisades Episcopal School
I know of no better places committed to faith and pluralism, creativity and critical conversation, tradition and innovation than Episcopal schools. Rooted in faith, hope, and love, I believe Episcopal education is sowing seeds that will transform the future and bear fruits of justice.
Episcopal schools take the spiritual and religious education of their students seriously. They are explicit in what they stand for from a spiritual and moral standpoint, and they are all-inclusive in their approach in laying out this message.
During my 32 year tenure as head of St. Andrew’s School in Austin, NAES gave me the wisdom, the guidance and support as I faced important decisions — some difficult. NAES also gave me lasting friendships which I will treasure forever.
Episcopal schools are the growing edge of God’s hope for our world.
…Episcopal schools touch, shape and transform young lives. Enough said!
I support NAES and Episcopal schools because we build the character and values necessary for a stronger citizenry in the future.
…that the good and godly work of teachers, administrators, and students would continue to shed the light of wisdom, joy, and love in a world that so desperately needs these things.
Episcopal schools connect the head to the heart; instilling enthusiasm, responsibility, and strong moral character in our students, while equipping them to excel both academically and socially.
I believe strongly in supporting Episcopal schools in thanksgiving for those who educated my four children; but also because, for many children, it may be the only exposure they have to the love of Christ in an educational setting.
