The spiritual identity of GEDS is grounded in the Christian faith and expressed through the liturgy and tradition of the Episcopal Church. As an Episcopal school we integrate spiritual formation into all aspects of the educational experience. As stated by the National Association of Episcopal Schools, we share the belief that our mission is built on the sure foundation of a Christian love that guides and challenges all who attend our schools to build lives of genuine meaning, purpose and service in the world they will inherit. We believe in the basic principles of the Baptismal Covenant and honor, celebrate and worship God as the center of life. At GEDS we strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.
