Episcopal Academy review by .

The tight knit community between the students and teachers creates a great learning environment where discussions can be held comfortably and questions can be asked without any reservation. With effort by the student, the faculty provides great preparation for the future. Each class consists of about 120 kids, with a fairly equal number of boys and girls. The workload definitely depends on the course one takes and how much the student wants to get out of it. I would say that Episcopal Academy can be difficult for those who do no really want to be there, but for those who want to make the most of their time there and education, its a great place.

Sample insights on admissions

  • For the interview, dress conservatively. Try to be very clean and put together. Also, I was a tour guide for two years and at the end of every tour, we were asked to evaluate the candidate so if you think the tour is not apart of the process, you are very wrong. Ask questions and be interested. Also, tip for the parents: the kids speak on the tour. Do not ask their questions for them...
  • Most younger siblings have an easy time in the admissions process. I can only think of one case of a younger sibling not being admitted. About half of the students who entered with me had come from public schools. The remainder came from private K-6 schools, or had transferred from other New York private schools The Elizabeth Morrow School and St. Bernard were two of the larger feeder schools...
