“This is Episcopal”

DSC_0258 (1)When the school was considering moving from the Merion Campus out to Newtown square, everyone was worried that the alumni might be upset. In fact, when people first visited the new campus, many alumni commented that it was nice, but it “is not the school I attended.” With that context, you will perhaps understand why the following comment meant so much to me.

Jim Rhodes, Class of ’65, listened attentively to me, as I gave an update on the school’s progress and work. He said to the group, “After walking around, talking with the students, and seeing what is going on here today on this campus, I know in my heart that this is Episcopal.”

The buildings and locations have changed many times in our storied history, but our commitment to excellence has been a constant.
