ESD’s Code of Conduct has a storied history that began in October 1977, when a special chapel service was held to initiate an Honor Code. All students, teachers, and staff sign that they will uphold the values inherent in our community.
Our Episcopal Identity
I am a soul open to searching. - ESD Manifesto
At ESD, we value the dignity of every human being as a child of God. We strive to live with honor, respect, and integrity 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.

We are committed to letting God's Love shine through us, as we love others as God has loved us, in healthy and live-giving relationships, as well as inclusive and caring communities, so we ignite a life of purpose as we develop an educated conscience, to share God's Light and Love and Life with our world. Associated with the values of inclusion, unity, healthy relationships, mission, passion, purpose, and vocation.
