Mission and Tenets



Welcome to St. John's, the oldest Episcopal school in Dallas.



The first Episcopal School in Dallas, we were created as an outreach of St. John's Episcopal Church in 1953. Our campus occupies 10 acres in East Dallas, near White Rock Lake and centered in a family-friendly neighborhood. With a creek running through the property and plenty of old-growth trees, the setting provides a wealth of outdoor education opportunities. Our campus is purposely designed to foster dynamic learning, encourage academic excellence, and spur collaboration and community.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to a program of academic excellence designed to train the mind, strengthen the character, and enrich the spirit of each student in a Christian environment.

Five Tenets of an Episcopal Education

These principles are reflected in our mission statement, guide our decisions and actions, and shape the environment we create for our students. The principles also influence our Board of Trustees in its governance role.

  • Academic excellence
  • Corporate worship (Episcopal/Christian chapel)
  • Religious studies based on basic biblical content
  • Meaningful and integrated community service and service learning projects
  • An inclusive community where the dignity of every human being is respected
