It is my hope that our website will help prospective parents learn what makes Beaches Episcopal School (BES) so special and will assist current parents locate all information that is pertinent to their children’s school experiences. If you are looking at our website for the first time, be sure to view the school video as it gives you an opportunity to see and hear firsthand why BES “makes the difference” in the life of each one of our students.
As an Episcopal school and a ministry of St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Beaches Episcopal School has a fundamental commitment to be an inclusive community grounded in respect for each of its members by fostering the religious and spiritual formation of all students. Children from all religious backgrounds comfortably participate in our chapel services and Christian/Character Education program.
We believe that in order to provide a solid foundation for all aspects of our children’s futures, we must help them to grow intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically in an environment that is safe and allows them to take risks. A challenging curriculum, including quality enrichment programs, helps develop inquisitive and creative minds. We are committed to providing a quality education in a way that will ensure each student reaches his or her full potential. Our caring and qualified faculty and staff, I believe, is the best among private elementary schools in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra. The staff provides opportunities for responsible citizenship, the building of self-esteem and leadership roles.
Please take the time to explore our website, as I am willing to bet that whether you are a prospective or current parent, you will learn something new and exciting about BES and what makes us one of the best private elementary schools in Jacksonville, Florida.
If you are in search of a school, especially a private elementary school, for your children, please be sure to contact our Admissions Director, Heather Galloway, to arrange for a tour. The only thing better than our school video is to take a personal visit of our campus and see for yourself what makes this school community so special! If you are a current parent, we hope that you have been able to take advantage of our volunteer opportunities so you can experience the joy of working with elementary aged children.
I thank you for your interest in our school, and hope you are or will become a part of the Beaches Episcopal School community.
Head of School
