Welcome to ESD
In 1974, the Episcopal School of Dallas was founded on four Founding Tenets, which still guide the school today. We believe daily worship, experiences in community, and studies in ethical decision-making prepare ESD students for service to others, the highest manifestation of God’s presence in our lives. Thirty-seven years later, our goal remains steadfast.
Our college-preparatory experience is symbolized in the three crosses embedded in the school crest, which represent sound learning, discipline, and faith. All that we do advances these essential elements for our students from Beginners to seniors. For ESD, the standard for achievement is personal and collective excellence within a school community that balances nurture and rigor of the whole child -- spirit, mind, and body. With the dedication of faculty and community members, our students are equipped to discover and maximize their talents, embracing their full potential.
I invite you to browse this website and learn how our exemplary and innovative curriculum inspires students to higher levels of creative and analytical thinking and accomplishment.
The Reverend Stephen B. Swann
Founding Rector and Headmaster
