Spiritual Life

As an Episcopal school, ESA supports students in their search to discover a personal relationship with God. Spiritual development occurs through sharing meaningful experiences with each other, as well as through offering our leadership and talents at ESA and our service to the larger community. 

Chapel services, held three times a week on the Cade campus and daily on the Lafayette campus, bring the community together for celebrating and learning through scripture and tradition, sharing of personal stories and journeys, showcasing talents, and enjoying spirit competitions. Each campus celebrates a Eucharist service once a month.

ESA welcomes all families, regardless of origin, background, or religion, and invites students to share aspects of their families' religious and cultural traditions with the community through chapel and in other ways. Ultimately, spiritual life at ESA centers on developing love for God and for one another.

The Three Pillars of ESA's Episcopal Identity

List of 3 items.

  • Chapel Program

    Chapel is a time when the entire community on each campus comes together. Each chapel offers something different, with opportunities for any member of the community to share. Read more about ESA's Chapel program.
  • Community Service

    ESA students serve the community through projects that include hosting a Christmas party for elderly residents of a local apartment complex, preparing food for community distribution, and forming work crews for flood relief efforts. In the Middle School, service is tied to learning as year-long lessons culminate in service projects, such as coastal wetlands restoration efforts.
  • Religious Education

    ESA's religious education program begins with an Introduction to World Religions class taken by all eighth graders, and continues with electives in religious studies offered to upper schoolers. Find course descriptions on our Middle and Upper School curriculum pages under Social Studies.
