Founded in 1951, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School has long been known as Columbia’s premier independent school. Our tradition of academic excellence is coupled with an abiding commitment to experiential learning that has led to the development of many of our most distinctive programs.

Holding true to our Episcopal heritage, we celebrate and seek to develop the whole child, and to develop tenacious, sophisticated thinkers who value service to others over self-interest. We further support the development of the whole child through a rich array of extracurricular offerings that create ample opportunities for students to find and nurture their passions beyond the classroom.

We believe that children learn best when they are truly known and supported by their teachers. Our abiding commitment to building strong relationships between students and teachers allows us to meet each child where they are in their educational and developmental journey, as opposed to taking a one-size-fits-all approach.

While our outcomes are second-to-none—our students compete nationally and achieve at the highest levels—each student’s Heathwood experience is unique, reflective of his or her interests and abilities, challenges and talents, goals and ethos. Our graduates don’t just master the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and beyond; they know themselves, and know how to advocate for themselves, in ways that set them apart from most of their peers. They leave Heathwood prepared not only to take on our dynamic world but to transform it.
