"St. Martin’s-in-the-Field Day School serves the community by educating children in a learning environment marked by worship, diversity, mutual respect, and service. Our coeducational Episcopal school is committed to developing the potential of each individual to live a creative, humane, and compassionate life worthy of a child of God. We prepare young people to live in a rapidly changing world by giving them a passion for learning and discovery and the wisdom of a living Christian tradition. We offer our students the knowledge and skills needed in an age of information, and the confidence and compassion that spring from a community of worship and mutual respect.
St. Martin’s vision is to create a passion for learning and discovery in a supportive, spiritual atmosphere, consistent with the Episcopal tradition. All students are encouraged to dream, explore, and experiment, as they grow into the children God has created them to be. Our faculty and staff are committed to helping each student develop the self-confidence, self-discipline, and self-respect necessary for strong character development and academic success. St. Martin’s strives to empower its students to be responsible members of the community.
Our mission and purpose is expressed in the core values that shape our daily life: Respect for self and others, honesty, compassion, and a sense of worth that comes from understanding oneself as a child of God.
Our students learn how to express themselves as individuals, to see themselves within a larger world, and to negotiate within that larger world.
St. Martin’s develops persons of character who are growing as compassionate, responsible members of the community."
