St. David's School is a premier academic community with Christian faculty, dedicated to the joy of learning and the lively pursuit of truth. Rooted in the Christian tradition, we welcome families of all faiths and backgrounds. Our mission is to challenge students to excel in faith, virtue, and knowledge. For us, excellence is the pursuit of truth and is the purpose of the mind, the soul, and the heart.
The academic curriculum, from Pre-Kindergarten to Twelfth Grade, positions the school and its students on the forefront of cutting-edge pedagogy, but St. David’s distinctive quality comes from the security in its foundation: a strong reliance on the tradition of learning, from its ancient inception to the present. Fresh thinkers are especially successful when they are able to apply to their work a deep understanding of what has come before them. This fusion of tradition and innovation defines St. David’s educational program. We continue to read canonical literature, not only because our students can bring new insights to the text (they can), but because eternal truths never go out of style. We continue to paint and to sing, not only because artists can help engineers solve design problems (they can), but because art and music are beautiful. We continue to study history and government because our world needs bold and creative minds to solve the problems that face it. At St. David's, we at once respect the pervasive influence of tradition and are courageous in our efforts to build upon it.
