Virginia Episcopal School

VES is a co-ed college preparatory school for boarding and day students in grades 9 – 12. In our intentionally small, diverse and engaging community—260 young men and women and 40 faculty—we guide students to strive Toward Full Stature in their academic, ethical, spiritual and personal growth.

The study of religion at VES—along with our tradition of corporate worship and prayer—challenges our students in the search for the ultimate meaning of human existence.

In recognition of our school’s foundation in the Episcopal Church and the significant role Christianity has played in the shaping of Western civilization, the Religion department offers the New Testament course each semester. And in recognition of our pluralistic and multi-religious world, the department offers two World Religions courses, asserting that an understanding of the faith and values of others is essential to global citizenship.
