General School Mission

St. Matthew's Parish School, an Episcopal day school, is an integral part of the Parish of St. Matthew, serving children and families of the parish and larger community. The school provides an excellent education through a challenging, caring and balanced program, which promotes intellectual, spiritual, physical and emotional growth. Our purpose is to affirm that we are all children of God and to nurture in each student a sense of self as a creative, ethical and responsible leader in the community.
