It is indeed a privilege to be a part of an academic community that strives to live the Christian identity each new day. Welcoming alert, eager, and smiling children to our campus each morning is the embodiment of starting one’s day off right. Working alongside dedicated and energetic teachers and staff is the perfect way to facilitate and foster learning across the grade levels and disciplines. My encounter with St. Matthew’s Episcopal School began as a parent and church member, and later developed into school board trustee, vestry member, and teacher. For fifteen years, ten of those years as an educator, I have been delighted to witness the culmination of learning, academically and spiritually, that takes place. My students from the earlier days of St. Matthew’s are now successful college students. They are varied and dynamic in their views of their global community. They are fearless in their approach to do what is right, though it may be met with opposition. Our students continue to ask the big questions and seek to understand. Learning and growing as Christ’s own is a blessed challenge. Let us help you meet that challenge for your children. I cannot wait for you to come by and experience all that St. Matthew’s Episcopal School has to offer.

Peace and Blessings

Laurie Cantu, Head of School
