Each of you must take responsibility for doing the best you can with your own life. Galatians 6:5
Our Episcopal Identity
I am a soul open to searching. - ESD Manifesto
ESD was founded on the belief that every child was made in the image of a loving God. We believe our Episcopal Identity has to be incarnate. It is visible in how we all live and interact with one another and what we carry forth into the world.
At ESD, we value the dignity of every human being as a child of God. We strive to live with honor, integrity, and respect for all as expressed in our Code of Conduct. We are committed to creating, maintaining, and nurturing a diverse, safe and inclusive environment as we prepare young women and men for lives of service, intellectual discovery, integrity, morality, and purpose.
