Employer Description
 
OUR MISSION
Virginia Episcopal School is an engaging community that guides students to strive Toward Full Stature in their academic, ethical, spiritual and personal growth.

OUR VISION
VES is an intentionally small, globally diverse educational community dedicated to excellence in student engagement, innovative learning and faculty support and growth. Our aim is to be the best small boarding school in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions.

OUR CORE VALUES
We believe in living by these four tenets:
Show Humility
Act with Honor and Integrity
Fully Engage in Building Community and Self
Strive for Excellence in All We Do

OUR COMMITMENT
VES students develop the knowledge, skills, character and learning mindsets necessary to succeed in college and life beyond. VES graduates are:
Self-aware
Curious, innovative thinkers and producers
Mindful leaders who serve with courage and compassion
Focused on community
Ready to navigate and continue their personal growth in a dynamic world.

A DIVERSE STUDENT BODY
VES is an intentionally small college preparatory school serving young men and women in grades 9–12. With a vibrant mix of 260 day (30%) and boarding (70%) students from 18 countries and 10 states plus Washington, DC, our campus is a meeting place for diverse perspectives and global cultures where students learn from and respect each other. The student body is 54% male, 46% female, 20% international students and 28% students of color.

VES is an inclusive, welcoming community of students who are curious, smart, funny, kind and innovative—the next generation of creators and producers with the power to change the world.

OUR FACULTY
We have 35 full-time teaching faculty—68% with advanced degrees and 13% of whom hold PhDs. The faculty-to-student ratio is 6:1, with an average class size of 11. Faculty serve not only as teachers, but also as advisors, coaches, mentors and activity directors. Making this community especially tight-knit, 84% of faculty live on campus. Students enjoy the accessibility to faculty, the family environment, watching faculty kids grow up and playing with the many pets that are also part of our community.

OUR GRADUATES
With a powerful foundation, VES students are equipped to excel. The 1923–24 session produced the first Harvard-bound alumnus. Since then, VES graduates have attended many of the world’s finest colleges and universities, and most importantly, they find the programs that best match with their personal and professional goals. 

Students attend a range of institutions, including Stanford, Yale, Wellesley, MIT, Georgia Tech, Duke University, Occidental College, the University of California, New York University, UVA, The College of William & Mary, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Wake Forest University, Sewanee: The University of the South, James Madison University, Hampden-Sydney and the University of Georgia.
