THE PILLARS FOR SUCCESS
St. Richard’s embraces the Episcopal tradition of intellectual exploration and discovery of faith that encourages students of all faith traditions to search for answers to challenging questions through an examination of cultures and religions, past and present.
St. Richard’s educates the whole student by promoting academic, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. The curriculum reflects classic values—focusing on science, mathematics, languages, the arts and humanities—executed with innovative tools and wisdom to prepare students for the modern world.
St. Richard’s sense of community extends beyond the school. Community service and neighborhood partnerships are woven into the curriculum. St. Richard’s students learn not only to respect themselves and others but also to embrace their responsibility to the community.
St. Richard’s prides itself in preparing students to be leaders. Students in all grades learn to be confident public speakers through school-wide performances and presentations such as the Kindergarten Nativity Play and Constitution Day Assembly. Older students are school role models for the entire school with traditions such as the Grade 8 buddy program helping to ensure a close sense of community.
St. Richard’s begins preparing students early for global citizenship. The wide range of students’ faiths, cultures, races and ethnicities creates a rich, diverse community. An award winning language program begins in PK, preparing our students in Grade 5 for an extensive exchange trip to France. Beginning in Grade 6 the language program expands to include Latin for all students with an option of French or Spanish. St. Richard’s students are well-equipped to confidently explore the wider world.
