About

School Overview

Saint Edward’s has grown and prospered as one of the best Florida independent schools since its founding in 1965 as a day school for students seeking a superior college-preparatory education. Enrolling students in preschool, elementary, middle and high school levels, today we serve just under 600 students in pre-k through grade 12.

Saint Edward’s students benefit from intense faculty involvement and superb teaching faculty in small classes. Our expectations for student achievement are high and students rise to the occasion. Saint Edward’s students begin college counseling with experienced counselors during the 8th grade and better than 90% of the graduating class is accepted into their college or university of first or second choice. Our SAT scores are well above state and national averages and are the highest achieved on the Treasure Coast. In keeping with our independent Episcopal School tradition, Saint Edward's places an emphasis on developing moral and spiritual character and good citizenship.

What Makes SES Different?

Our unique learning location on the Indian River Lagoon waterfront is a safe and beautiful environment. Our modern campus facilities include science labs at every level, modern classrooms, athletic fields, an aquatics complex, music and fine arts studios, two libraries, an Academic Learning Lab for academic support services and an 800-seat performing arts center.
 
The curriculum fosters the development of critical thinking, writing, reading, listening, presentation, scientific and quantitative skills, leadership, community service, organizational and study skills. 
 
SES admits students of any race, religion, color, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Independent Episcopal schools are Christian communities where spiritual and moral development are integrated with a high quality educational experience... read more

Accreditation and Membership

Saint Edward’s School stands as one of the best established and best credentialed Florida independent schools.

Few Florida independent schools can offer the quality and diversity of State, National and private educational credentials. It’s for good reason, too -- 100% of students are accepted into four-year colleges. 

Our affiliation with national associations affirms our commitment to adhere to best practices regarding governance, teaching, admissions and financial aid. $1.7 million dollars a year is awarded to families who qualify for financial aid.
