Through creative engagement, meaningful participation, and reasoned argumentation, Saint Edward’s students practice the skills to become active members in the global community. Our mission is to encourage students to be healthy, conscientious global citizens, guided by the fundamental values of honesty, kindness, respect, and responsibility in all that they do.
We believe that mastery of the core disciplines combined with rigorous development of critical thinking skills is fundamental to the education of informed, versatile, and creative young adults. Saint Edward’s Upper School teachers support risk taking yet still expect precise content knowledge not merely for its own sake but for the sake of collaborative and productive intellectual endeavors.
A Saint Edward’s School education seeks to graduate young adults who:
- possess broad knowledge and understanding of the arts, history, literature, mathematics, physical education, science, and world languages.
- are capable of using this mastery in the thoughtful interpretation and critical analysis of new information.
- are effective communicators, able to write and speak with clarity and originality in multiple languages.
- demonstrate leadership, empowering others and inspiring a shared vision among their peers and the larger community.
- who are disciplined and creative problem solvers, prepared to engage new challenges methodically and purposefully.
